When in Rome Reviews

Jeffrey Lyles
Lyles' Movie Files

My kind of romantic comedy. It's funny, a bit silly and doesn't try to set the new standard for romance in the genre. It's exactly what you expect, but in a good way.

Most of the troubles come from the painfully unfunny shenanigans of Beth's magic-stricken admirers.

Film Journal International

When in Rome never delves deep into anything, but whisks us through the conventions of romantic comedies so quickly there's barely time to groan.

When in Rome is an insipid waste; every ounce of potential has been steadfastly turned away from in order to make a safe little piece of clowning.

[Bell] carries a classic presence and charm that is tough not to like. Yet, at the same time, she does so with a little spunk and sass.

...we are expected to suspend our disbelief and accept that the adorable Kristen Bell needs some sort of crackpot magic spell to attract suitors.

You know from the start of Mark Steven Johnson's silly, sunny romcom how it's going to end.

Number of record-scratch jokes? Three. Number of walk-into-a-lamppost gags? Two. Number of laughs? Take a wild guess.

Shadows on the Wall

Despite its over-the-top zaniness, this romantic comedy manages to keep us entertained with its starry cast and a nutty plot. If only the filmmakers had resisted the urge to exaggerate both the humour and the sentimentality.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

This Italian-themed romcom is not quite the most unspeakably-patronising-to-Italy film of all time. That prize belongs to the musical Nine, starring Daniel Day-Lewis. But it runs a very close second.

Daily Mail [UK]

All you need to know about When In Rome is that it was written by David Diamond and David Weissman, who perpetrated the atrocity that was the Robin Williams-John Travolta 'comedy' Old Dogs.

Ladies, here's a chick-flick best enjoyed with your eyelids actually glued together.

Roz Laws
Birmingham Post

On the up side, it has a decent cast, but class acts like Anjelica Huston aren't given enough to do. And Danny DeVito has to say awful lines like "There's not an emotion on earth that can't be expressed through sausage."

This is nothing more than a throwaway comedy clumsily assembled from a half-decent idea.

Radio Times

When in Rome is watchable enough, albeit in a cheesily inept way, but is far less magical than its storyline.

Elliott Noble
Sky Movies

It's all a bit of harmless froth and nonsense -- as long as you're not too disturbed by the sight of DeVito chasing Bell around the Guggenheim like Benny Hill on Viagra.

Cinema Signals

A witless realization of a promising supernatural premise suggests that a few people involved with the movie don't have a particular talent for it.

Reel Film Reviews

...the movie boasts a seriously underwhelming premise that ultimately negates the good will established (and perpetuated) by its stars.

When I saw the trailer for When in Rome I laughed like crazy. I wish the movie were as funny.

This appealing, fun pairing gives the film some promise--that is just as immediately shot to hell once the big plot hook/gimmick kicks in.
