Love is in the air. On the most romantic day of the year, would-be lovers woo hearts with flowers, candy, cards and gifts. Best friends Kate (Marley Shelton), Paige (Denise Richards), Dorothy (Jessica Capshaw), Lily (Jessica Cauffiel) and Shelly (Katherine Heigl) are young women looking for a relationship -- a valentine to die for. And this year they might just get their wish.
The film revolves around Kate, Paige, Dorothy, Lily and Shelly, who grew up together, went through school together and shared their dreams of the perfect boy and the perfect future. Lily is the school princess; Paige, the class bad girl; Kate is quiet; Dorothy plump and insecure. The four become a group and stick together, scorning the nerds and presenting a unified front to the school bullies. Years later, they are still friends. Their lives now include careers but, like many young women, they are navigating through the singles scene.
David Boreanaz, whose star has catapulted in the top-rated series "Buffy" and his own spin-off, "Angel," makes his big screen starring debut as Adam, a sports writer with whom journalist Kate finds herself in on-again-off-again relationship. As the film unfolds, and terrible things begin to happen to Kate and her circle of friends, Adam and Kate become even closer.
The story begins before Valentine's Day when the friends convene for a close friend's funeral, after which they all start receiving strange, menacing Valentine messages.
At first, the women dismiss the twisted greetings as a sick joke. Then they meet with the detective (Fulvio Cecere) investigating their friend's death and learn there could be a link to someone they all knew, and tormented, years ago, at a Valentine's dance in junior high school - a boy named Jeremy Melton. The police try to trace him but the trail is cold. They can find no recent address, employment record or photograph. If Jeremy Melton still exists, he could be anyone, anywhere.
As the threats of violence intensify, each of the women grapples with the realization that any man she knows - or ever knew - could be a vicious killer.
