VALEN­TINE’S DAY

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

NINE, Tues­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2010)

Vet­eran di­rec­tor Garry Mar­shall re­cruits his Pretty Woman pro­tag­o­nist Ju­lia Roberts and a host of A- list stars, in­clud­ing Anne Hath­away, Jamie Foxx, Jes­sica Biel and Bradley Cooper ( pic­tured), for what is essen­tially a state­side take on Love, Ac­tu­ally. The schmaltzy story cen­tres around jovial jock Reed ( Ash­ton Kutcher) and teacher Ju­lia ( Jen­nifer Gar­ner), a pair of best friends hap­pily part­nered off to Jes­sica Alba and Pa­trick Dempsey. But when Reed finds out Ju­lia’s boyfriend is cheat­ing on her he must de­cide whether or not to tell his clue­less mate. Though lack­ing the heart of its en­dear­ing Brit coun­ter­part, this en­sem­ble ro­man­tic com­edy still beats with plenty of heart.
