Everything about Love in the Villa is a second-rate copy of someone else's more well-executed plot idea. There are no surprises here and nothing original. Two people dislike each other and then fall in love. They treat each other badly until their feelings abruptly change. Each has an unsuitable significant other who just doesn't get them, and that, too, feels like a rip-off of other, better movies.

Hopper is deft with the few clever lines he's given. Graham has less practiced comic timing but gamely hangs in there with him. In the end, the two leads are charming enough to make the ending pleasing, however implausible. The score -- mostly old American pop songs sung in Italian -- is fun.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
