Synopsis: Valentine’s Day can be tough when you are single and alone—and even tougher when you’re not the most attractive guy on the college campus. Four women play a practical joke on a hapless collegiate on Valentine’s Day. Ten years later, Mr. Unpopular undergoes plastic surgery and is transformed into a handsome heart-throb. Now the tables are turned and he seeks out the four women he knew in college. Only this time it isn’t a joke—it’s murder.

Viewer Comments
“Valentine” never should have been released. Terrible acting, poor soundtrack, corny story, dumb ending… this movie makes Scream look like Shakespeare. The only thing that made this movie worth seeing was getting to laugh at how bad it was… and we did, through the whole movie. don’t waste your time or money on this low-budget garbage.” My Ratings: [Very Offensive / 1]

There wasn’t that much swearing in the movie, but other than that it was a good movie… I thought that it was very suspenseful.

I have seen MANY movies, and this is one of the stupidest along side with Starship Troopers. Ridiculous acting (especially Denise Richards) and painfully predictable story line and characters. As in moral value it was quite mild compared to other horror movies but still contained a scene of female nudity and another scene implying oral sex. Bottom line—just don’t see it! My Ratings: [Very Offensive / 1]

This movie was a waste of time. It was just a bunch of blood and gore thrown together with no real connection. that’s all the movie was about, blood and guts. Besides a high body count, characters also act and dress promiscuously. There is also a subtle but definitely there statement that premarital sex is normal and acceptable in our society.
My Ratings: [Extremely Offensive / 1½]

…At least 7 F-words and 1 F-word derivative, two anatomical references (one is clinical), many scatological references, many mild obscenities, a couple of religious profanities, and a few insults…
…contains an extreme amount of violence where the killer dispatches the victims in various and brutal fashions, often with rather bloody/gory results…
