''Wild at Heart'': How romantic is it?

STARRING Nicolas Cage, Laura Dern

THE HEART OF IT This surreal (and violent) road trip from director David Lynch follows Sailor and Lula (Cage, above, and Dern), two star-crossed lovers who trek to California with a hitman and a private investigator on their tail.

WHY IT'S RIGHT FOR V-DAY Cage's dead-on Elvis impression and his rendition of ''Love Me Tender'' will have you dreaming of a cheesy Vegas wedding in no time. (Warning: Britney Spears might not wanna watch.)

EW GRADE C-

HEART-O-METER 3 1/2 out of 5
