Best friends Kate (Marley Shelton), Paige (Denise Richards), Dorothy (Jessica Capshaw) and Lily (Jessica Cauffiel) are terrified after another of their group, Shelly (Katherine Heigl), is found murdered. When the girls then begin receiving death threats themselves, they suspect the killer might be a boy they teased mercilessly at school. The boy in question hasn't been seen for years, and when they discover that he has undergone plastic surgery, suddenly all the men in their lives come under suspicion.
A moderately enjoyable by-the-numbers slasherflick, Valentine is more memorable for incidental characters and details than it is for its central plot or the various twists director Jamie Blanks and his large team of writers inflict on us. Years ago, in sixth grade, causal cruelty by a group of girl friends to an outsider boy had, accidentally, terrible consequences for him... and now someone disguised in a cherub mask is killing them, one after another. Most of them have more or less messy relationships--Kate (Marley Shelton) is dating the charming alcoholic Adam (David Boreanaz) and Dorothy (Jessica Capshaw) has attracted the exploitative conman Campbell; as the bitchy bad girl Paige, Denise Richards has a memorable sexual charisma. All of the performances have enough depth to be readable for subtextual clues as to who the killer really is. Some sequences--the pursuit of Lily through a maze on the walls of which highly sexualised advertising images are flickeringly projected--have an impact which, sustained, would have made for a far more interesting film.
On the DVD: The DVD has a commentary by Jaime Blanks in which he talks frankly about some of the working constraints, a club reel of the song "Opticon" by Orgy, a short behind-the-scenes documentary and subtitles in English, Arabic, Romanian and Bulgarian. The film is presented in a widescreen 2.35:1 visual ratio and has excellent Dolby Sound which ensures that the vigorous dance soundtrack never drowns the snappy dialogue. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

Reinforcements of negative stereotypes abound, as in most movies since. - if you're not pretty you'll become mentally ill and a vengeful murderer.
where it is revealed David is the killer is not the shocker the writers seemed to think it would be. Also the horny detective had no purpose and seemed to have been added for laughs which were lacking. If they had just made him be a detective without all the subplot he would have been a better character. This is like one of those B horror movies, where they're a lot of fun to watch, yell at the screen and poke fun at, but you don't want to add it to your collection.
