Michael Bolton's Big, Sexy Valentine's Day Special is a Netflix variety special starring Michael Bolton and created by The Lonely Island. It was released on Netflix on February 7, 2017.[1]


When Santa's elves make too many toys for Christmas, Michael Bolton must star in a Valentine's Day special to encourage couples to make love and conceive 75,000 babies.[2]



Sophie Gilbert of The Atlantic called Michael Bolton's Big, Sexy Valentine's Day Special "a sparkling and star-studded oddity that’s part-PBS telethon and part-depraved sex comedy...At its best, it’s a glorious, only partly ironic homage to the vocal power and unfettered sexual magnetism of one of the most indelible figures in balladry. At its worst, it’s baffling."[2] Esther Zuckerman of The A.V. Club called the special "a hilarious assault on the very idea of conventional, heteronormative sexiness. It’s ideal Valentine’s Day programming for people who hate the nonsensical commercialism of Valentine’s Day and for anyone who can’t resist unfettered silliness."[3]
