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.
