Isn’t It Romantic is a film released in the US last Valentine’s Day but released internationally via Netflix last 28 February 2019.
It stars Rebel Wilson as Natalie, an architect in New York who is longing for recognition at work and as who she is. She has her own indifference to romantic comedy films for being too cliche or too fantastic.
On her way home, she is mugged and as she struggles to regain possession of her purse, she hits her head and fell unconscious. She woke up in a hospital but in an alternative romantic comedy world.
She finds it weird that she thinks that the only way to get out of that world is to make Blake (played by Liam Hemsworth), a client who always mistakes her for an assistant, fall for her. But things get more weird when things she hates about romantic comedy films become real.
The film tries to satirize romantic comedy and ironically, the main character ends ups living it. It is fast-paced but it tends to be predictable. But overall, it is a feel good movie and entertaining. I’m rating it 3 out of 5 stars.
