Will the star-studded film 'Valentine's Day' be a hit? Judging from the marquee name power, absolutely. Judging from the trend of past movies named after holidays, maybe.

Hollywood has a long tradition of naming films after holidays -- a tradition longer and more expansive than you probably realize (seems nearly every holiday as gotten the Hollywood title treatment, save for Martin Luther King Day and Heimlich Maneuver Day,* but perhaps those scripts are in the works).

We look at this bizarre sub-genre of films named after holidays and rate each on The Gift Scale, meaning "Money" is awesome, "Socks" are horrible and "Gift Certificate" is somewhere in between. Results are not scientific.
