ISN’T IT ROMANTIC (2019): The Thing I Liked…

Isn’t It Romantic is a comedy / romance about Natalie, a young woman who’s become disenchanted with love and mysteriously finds herself trapped inside a romantic comedy.

The good news about director Todd Strauss-Schulson’s movie is that I did laugh and smile a few times. The beautiful city of New York and all the scenes before Natalie wakes up in the hospital are the ones I enjoyed the most. What I like about these scenes is the way Natalie was making fun of romantic comedies. The disappointment then came for me when she found herself inside a romantic comedy, but it wasn’t an especially good one.

The vibrant colours and the humour in the super romantic New York scenes were fun in parts but after a while it didn’t do a good job of holding my interest. Something about Isn’t It Romantic made the movie feel as though it shouldn’t have been the final draft, because if it had felt more finished, maybe I’d have been more convinced by Natalie’s emotional journey and the way it was executed.

Another moment I didn’t find convincing is the actual presentation of the ‘parking lot conversion’ idea. Not that I have any actual architectural experience but as someone who’s been in many presentations, I wanted to buy into Natalie’s idea and visualise it as a good and feasible one during that presentation but it just didn’t happen.

Watch Isn’t It Romantic if you’re so curious. The trailer is pretty fun so you may find that you enjoy the finnished film more than I did.

THE HUSTLE (2019): New Trailer From Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, Tim Blake Nelson…

In new comedy, The Hustle, Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson are two down-and-out con artists engaged in a contest where the loser must leave town.

Directed by Chris Addison, The Hustle is a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) which stars  Steve Martin, Michael Caine…

I’m in for the amusing ridiculousness, the James Bond-like settings, the glamour and to see Hathaway in another role she clearly had fun playing.

Tim Blake Nelson, Sarah-Stephanie, Meena Rayann, Aaron Neil, Ingrid Oliver, Alex Sharp and Casper Christensen also star.

The Hustle Release Dates: May 10th, 2019 (US & UK)…
