Movie Info & Cast
This meta-comedy parodies and celebrates all the trappings of the rom-com. Rebel Wilson stars as Natalie, an architect who can’t get noticed at work and whose cynicism gets in the way of her personal life. Then Natalie is knocked unconscious while trying to escape a mugging. When she comes to, everything is very different. New York City smells better, her apartment is beautiful, and men pay attention to her. Like, a lot of attention.
To her horror, Natalie realizes she’s living inside a romantic comedy. As she comes to terms with all the trappings of rom-com existence — conversations that turn into dance sequences; a new best friend; an impossibly attractive boyfriend (Liam Hemsworth) — Natalie’s entire world changes.

Awful. Just awful
A little on the cheesy side but at least they didn't try to hide it, I laughed out loud more than once, enjoyed it
Natalie might protest the whitewashing of New York by rom-coms, but Isn’t It Romantic trots out multiple supporting characters of color whose sole roles are to make the white protagonist look good.
For all its winking jabs, this blend of giddy bits and teachable moments eventually follows the same old playbook.
I wish the movie was just a tad sharper, took a little more time to really clarify its stance on this whole social-sexual-commercial world of romantic aspirationalism, to make its commentary and its humor really sing—and sting.
