Storyline

Ben Valentine (Rhys Muldoon) has totally lost his way in the world. Drunk and directionless, he finds himself in trouble with the law in the small Victorian country town of Rushworth. Mistakenly identified as famous AFL footballer Ben Valentine, he is sentenced to 200 hours of community service... in the form of coaching the town's 'no-hoper' football team. Teetering on the brink of demise, if they don't win three out of the next four games, not only will they have to merge with their arch rivals, but their beloved pie factory Dick's will be sold. For the proud, close-knit community, the future is looking bleak. With so much riding on the outcome of the next couple of games, Ben begins to realise how important his role is, and starts to care about this football mad community. But will he be able to pull it off? Will the town accept who this drifter really is?

A gem of a Movie!
22 July 2008 | by gibbsy56See all my reviews

Every so often (but not often enough these days) a movie comes along which leaves an indelible print, not only in your mind but also in your heart and Valentine's Days is one of those movies.

I am not going to give anything away as knowing little about this film, before viewing it, was a definite plus. If you really want to know about it then read the plot synopsis.

My idea of a great movie is one that makes you feel. Valentine's Day made me laugh, cheer, cry and ultimately melted my heart. It makes you wish you lived in a small country town that has a great sense of community and team spirit.

Some say it is predictable and yes it may very well be but you know, who cares. You find yourself totally involved with these wonderful characters and it makes you wish that your only worry in life was whether you were going to win your next football game (although some may say thats its not THAT simple to win a footy game!).

In summary, please watch this movie and let it remind you of the important things in life - friends, family, community, love (pick whatever order you like as we all have differing priorities) but best of all, find that feeling inside you that you may of lost along life's way - heart.
