Kutcher and Garner talked to Reuters about their film and shared opinions about all things romantic including JumboTron proposals and school teacher crushes.

Q: Ashton, you play a florist in "Valentine's Day." What did you learn about that job that would be a tip for guys.

Kutcher: "Baby's Breath is hell to florists. It's filler. It's not sexy, it's not chic. It's death to a florist. They hate it when it comes in as a request."

Q: What's your take on giving flowers on Valentine's Day -- boring and unimaginative, or a given?

Garner: "It's a baseline must."

Kutcher: "Flowers are conformist if you don't think about the card. The flowers will say a lot, but the card becomes the essential piece of the delivery."   Continued...
