Isn’t It Romantic

isn't it romantic official poster

Release year: 2019

Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson

Screenwriter: Erin Cardillo, Dana Fox, Katie Silberman

Starring: Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, Adam Devine, Priyanka Chopra, Betty Gilpin, Brandon Scott Jones, Jennifer Saunders

Influenced by her bitter mother (Saunders), Natalie (Wilson) has grown up to become a cynical woman focused on career and hating romantic comedies. After hitting her head during a robbery she wakes up in an alternative romantic comedy universe.

 From grey and gritty to colourful and cheerful, Isn’t It Romantic gives is no trouble noticing the difference between the real world and the one Natalie wakes up in. Every cliché is used as Natalie stumbles through a pastecoloured nightmare of musical entries and swearing censorship. Carried on Wilson’s (Pitch perfect, 2012) capable shoulders the movie is funny, charming and smart as Natalie realizes there is a lesson to be taught in her ‘perfect’ world. This is no slapstick comedy, it is a cleverly created mixture of a love letter to the genre as well as spoof of. There are some genuinely brilliant moments (the morning after sex and the karaoke bar being high points) and it is great to see Wilson as leading lady, more of that please! A hilarious feel-good rom-com with a suitable satirical bite.
