Fun romcoms

Among the best rom coms I've seen Unfortunate how underrated this is, I liked Isn't It Romantic a lot! Great story, funny, silly in the best way, and not overdone with the singing; I can't stand musicals. Also my uncle worked on this as a production assistant which is epic, my cousin even got to meet Rebel Wilson recently - I'm jealous of that. I want to be involved in anything film related so damn bad! The 5.9 rating is really unfortunate though seriously deserves at least a 7.4

Laugh Out Loud and snort hilarious

My daughters and I have watched it twice now and still laugh uproariously at all the obvious and less obvious jokes studding this feel good movie. As we say in Australia, it’s funny coz it’s true, even though it takes the pi$$. Meaning it laughs at itself all the way through, whilst laughing at itself laughing at itself. If is so cleverly written and beautifully executed, I feel good for hours afterward. You’ll end up in live with every character it the movie, just for making you smile. Rebel, Liam and Adam are amazing. The only thing I would change is to include what I am left to imagine would be even more hilarious ... the outtakes. Bring on some bloopers I say. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Five hearts
