Valentine’s Day needs romcoms, and Rebel Wilson is delivering next year with Isn’t It Romantic.
This latest film to sit in a frustrating subgenre of punctuation-defying movie titles, alongside the likes of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and What Just Happened, Wilson plays a cynical arcihitect who ends up becoming trapped inside a romcom.
Her entire life becomes a kind of Cinderella story filled with love hearts and flowers after a bump to the head, and to break out of it she needs to find true love. Well we think that’s it. At any rate, we’d be happy staying in hearts and flowers world.
There’s also a bit of irony in that poor Rebel actually got concussed while filming the flick, getting spirited away to hospital and all.
Also starring Liam Hemsworth, Adam Devine and Priyanka Chopra, and hailing from the director of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas in Todd Strauss-Schulson, Isn’t It Romantic opens in Australia when else? Yes, Valentine’s Day 2019.
