Isn’t It Romantic (2019)

As soon as I saw the trailer for the new romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic, I knew I needed to see it.

AND IT IS NOW ON NETFLIX. 

Even better, it lived up to my high hopes. I mean, it is still Hollywood so it is still occasionally vulgar and certainly does not share my worldview on relationships. But compared to the usual fare, I found it hilarious and I appreciated the message. 

This is exactly what I hoped I Feel Pretty (2018) would be.

But where that movie eventually embraced the cliches and fell short, Isn’t It Romantic contains a consistent message that both subverts and adds to the romantic comedy genre. 

The movie totally embraces being both campy and corny, but if you are a sucker for a good rom com, I think you will enjoy this one. Also, Liam Hemsworth CRACKED ME UP.

Girls’ Night Out

Yesterday I had a charming girls’ night out with some of my fellow interns. We got mani-pedis, went out for Thai food, got ice cream, and concluded with the movie I Feel Pretty. 

I Feel Pretty was funny and not as vulgar as I expected. Not sure I would watch it again, though. It has great potential but never strays from the predictable and piles loads of angst onto otherwise good material.

Did you see the movie, and if so, what were your thoughts?
