Julia Roberts is back with a new romantic comedy from her Pretty Woman and Runaway Bride director Garry Marshall. Valentine's Day is the story of many couples romances on February 14. Come this Feb. 14, Roberts knows how she's going to spend the night with husband Danny Moder.

"My kids go to bed at 7:30," she said. "For Valentine's Day, we're just gonna be makin' out, the full 24 hours."

Joking around in the spirit of her new romantic comedy, Roberts also had advice for other ladies looking for love. "Make a nice dinner reservation and have a nice glass of wine and then go home and, you know, take your top off. I think that's a recipe for success, wouldn't you say?"

Valentine's Day is set in Los Angeles where all the relationship stories unfold. Roberts had her own trials and tribulations finding a lasting love in Hollywood, but she doesn't hold any grudges against the city.

"I think it's the same in any city. LA isn't distinctive in its uniqueness to what makes a relationship work. Two people who work at it in any town you go to. That's what works."

Valentine's Day opens Friday.
