Isn't It Romantic : Movie Review

Isn't It Romantic (2019) - Movie PosterRebel Wilson (2017's "Pitch Perfect 3") is utterly beguiling in "Isn't a Romantic." She plays Natalie, a cynical New York City architect whose lack of confidence has kept her from moving ahead at her job (she currently designs parking lots). As a child, her love of romantic comedies was squashed by her mother (Jennifer Saunders), who made it clear she didn't have the looks or charisma to win the guy like Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock always seemed to do in movies. When Natalie is mugged in the subway and knocked unconscious, she comes to in a picturesque, fantastical version of Manhattan that looks like it was ripped from a Williams Sonoma catalogue by way of "13 Going on 30." Suddenly, her apartment is bigger and impeccably decorated, her office is fancier, she's got a stereotypical gay best friend on hand to confide in, the four-letter curse words she utters are bleeped to retain a PG-13 rating, and every guy she meets seems to instantly fall for her. Her top suitor would appear to be the wealthy, classically handsome Blake (Liam Hemsworth), but it doesn't take a romantic-comedy aficionado to realize her devoted pal and co-worker Josh (Adam Devine) is the guy for her.
