No Valentine’s Day is complete without a ridiculous amount of chocolate and a trip to the movie theater to see the latest over-the-top cheesy romance. And the way I see it, you have three options in the movie department this year. In terms of chocolate, your options are limitless. Go crazy!
The first romantic comedy on the docket is About Last Night, starring Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant, Kevin Hart, and Regina Hall. Of all your options, this seems to be the least cheesy of the bunch while still having many of the necessary ingredients for a good Valentine’s Day film. For starters, it gets point for Ealy’s attractiveness. Hey, this is Valentine’s Day. Being shallow is allowed!
Then, we’ve got Hart to add the humor, and did I mention there’s a scene in the rain? That gives it bonus points. All in all, this is your most down-to-earth option. About Last Night, a remake of the 1986 film starring Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, and Jim Belushi, follows two best friends as they navigate the dating world, one woman at a time — until one of them falls in love. From there, it’s all “Who will say ‘I love you’ first?” and “What does this mean?”
In general, About Last Night seems like a solid pick for a chick flick to see on Valentine’s Day, or any day, for that matter. READ FULL STORY
