Isn't It Romantic

Critics Consensus

It follows as many genre conventions as it mocks, but Isn't It Romantic is a feel-good rom-com with some satirical bite -- and a star well-suited for both.

Movie Info

New York City architect Natalie works hard to get noticed at her job but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city's next skyscraper. And if things weren't bad enough, Natalie, a lifelong cynic when it comes to love, has an encounter with a mugger that renders her unconscious, waking to discover that her life has suddenly become her worst nightmare -- a romantic comedy -- and she is the leading lady.

  • As funny as it is about sending up romantic comedy conventions, Isn't It Romantic also embraces what makes them so compelling.

  • It's a deft setup for a number of clever sight and continuation gags as romcom tropes are flipped and flipped again.

    January 8, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Rebel Wilson and Adam Devine play to their strengths and recreate the chemistry they had in the Pitch Perfect movies. They get to be their charming, goofy selves that we expect from them.

  • The big studio rom-com is back!

  • So many charming, carefully-crafted laughs that make it worth an hour and 28 minutes of your time. It's like the writers forced a robot to watch years worth of rom-coms, and then scientifically created this perfect spin with all of their idiosyncrasies.

Audience Reviews for Isn't It Romantic

  • Jul 17, 2019
    I like the "trapped inside a movie/tv show" concept. I've seen it done better elsewhere, but it's still pretty good here. And I very much enjoyed the way it plays out at the end. Actually I think the last time I was this warm on a romcom, it was When We First Met. Another Netflix original that I liked for virtually identical reasons... Isn't it Romantic still isn't my sort of film. I just don't gravitate towards this genre. But It's better. Almost makes it feel like we're collectively going in the right direction as an industry. I'm sure we're not, but it's nice to live in that delusion.

    Rebel Wilson is terrific, but I don't actually know what kind romantic comedies this movie is trying to spoof and I don't think the movie does either.

    The script fits the star perfectly. It was funny and enjoyable. But forgettable.

    This movie that spoofs the movies, specifically rom-coms, enjoys a willing cast even if the writing is thin and predictable. Teens might get a kick out of it, but a couple of dance numbers cannot make a movie a whole thing.
