The Filming of "Valentine's Day" Behind the Scenes

"Valentine's Day. It comes every year
whether you like it or not."

If you are happily in love, Valentine's Day is a day of hearts and flowers, romance and sentiment. If you are among those who are unlucky in love, it is just another day.

Director Garry Marshall, who has successfully captured the many facets of love in some of the screen's biggest romantic comedy hits, offers, "Some people think Valentine's Day is the best thing and others try to block it out. It means different things to different people. The other holidays are all clearer," he adds with his trademark deadpan delivery, noting, "Christmas, we decorate a tree, you give me a present, we sing nice songs, go home, go to bed. New Year's Eve, you drink, you kiss at 12 o'clock, sing Auld Lang Syne and cry, go home, go to bed.

That's simple. Got it. Arbor Day...not the biggest holiday, but getting bigger because we're all 'going green.' But Valentine's Day is vague. It's a hard holiday to define because love is so hard to define and that's why it makes for a good story. Why not do a romantic comedy about the day we're all concentrated on romance, and that's 'Valentine's Day.'"

Seen through the eyes of a multigenerational cast of characters, "Valentine's Day" threads its way through a variety of relationships--from first dates to longtime commitments, from young crushes to old flames, and from perpetual singles to unrequited loves.

To tell the interconnecting stories, the film brings together one of the largest all-star ensembles ever assembled in one film, including three Garry Marshall veterans, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway and Hector Elizondo, as well as Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, George Lopez, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, and Taylor Swift.
