"WINTER'S TALE" from Warner Brothers opens Fri., Feb. 14, 2014.

STARRING: Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jennifer Connelly, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint and Russell Crowe.

DIRECTOR: Akiva Goldsman (directorial debut).

SYNOPSIS: Set in mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, this is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, the age-old battle between good and evil and, of course, never-ending love.

The amazing thing here is a total of three love stories released on one day and none of them star Jennifer Aniston or Mandy Moore. Without them to keep it interesting, count on many guys falling asleep in many theaters across the country, thinking they have to suffer through this crud to get to the promised land. While that statement feeds many stereotypes, let's not forget that stereotypes exist because they are true. Good luck, guys. It's just one night out of your life, right? Right?
