Meta, hilarious, adorable romantic comedy is self-aware and entertaining.
Isn't It Romantic is a hilarious, well-done and very self-aware romantic comedy about a woman named Natalie living in New York City. She's an architect who is struggling to find the confidence to present her ideas to her company, and she also hates romantic comedies and how unrealistic they are. One day, she is mugged and hits her head very hard, sending her to a world where she is stuck in a romantic comedy that just happens to be PG-13. I absolutely loved this movie. It was definitely laugh out loud funny, and Rebel Wilson was fantastic as the main character. The movie was extremely self-aware and acknowledged all of its stereotypes to make fun of romantic comedies, and I thought that was really smart and made the movie very enjoyable. I predicted the ending from a mile away, but I enjoyed it a lot nonetheless. This was probably the best romantic comedy I've seen in a very long time, even though the entire movie was about making fun of the cliches of romantic comedies. There is some mild violence, such as when a character is mugged and fights with a robber before banging their head really hard, a character gets hit by a small food stand and is later almost hit by a car, and in the most disgusting moment, rips out an IV, causing blood to shoot out of her arm on-screen and splatter on someone's face. There is a bit of strong sexual innuendo, but not as much as I thought there would be. Expect some kissing and implied/off-screen sex in a very funny scene where it just fades to black and cuts to the next morning before anything is shown. Characters drink a little bit, and there's quite a lot of strong language, including many uses of "s--t." In the end, I really enjoyed Isn't It Romantic and I definitely think you should go see it.
