Wow, this one….. This one is definitely something else and I don’t have anything to prepare you for the ride we are about to take so let us just get straight into it!
Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day is the latest animated special from DC Animation within the same world as the Harley Quinn animated series. Harley and Ivy are spending their first Valentine’s day together and in true Harley Quinn fashion it has to be the best Ivy has ever had! Joining in on the fun is a couple of other not-so-lucky souls hoping to cash in on the mushy holiday along with snippets from some more well-known couples from the DC Universe telling us how they got together.
This may be an animated feature but let me stress to you from the start this is one for adult animated fans, no kids allowed.
DC’s animated TV shows and movies have been a staple for me for many years now. They hold a certain allure and can tell the sort of stories that are too fantastical to tell in a live-action setting plus more of those out there storylines from the comics can be adapted much easier. One character I have much preferred the animated version of is Harley Quinn. Harley is bat shit crazy, there is no other way to describe it, and yet she holds a certain allure in that she does what she thinks is the right thing in the most intense way for those she cares for.
Queue a Valentine’s special. Harley is out to make sure that Ivy is going to have the best Valentine’s day ever! Even if Ivy is more than happy to hang around home, watch some TV and have some fun that isn’t enough! A dinner date, heist attempt and fireworks display later Harley has one more thing in mind to finish off Ivy and her Valentine’s day…..
In true DC style sometimes things just go a little too well and now everyone in the city is sharing in the Valentine’s Day spirit.
Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day is a quick fun romp to help try and recapture some of that lost fun that Valentine’s day is apparently about and a fun ride it is. There are some very questionable moments that had me laughing out loud, a good little hit of action and a few moments with Bane that I am sure will never leave my memory.
Not meant to be taken seriously and just here for a bit of fun, A Very Problematic Valentine’s day is here to spread some unrestricted love to all who want or need it.
Coming soon to Binge in Australia be sure to keep an eye out.
