All rom-coms have one thing in common, that is they have a specific storyline and characters that look a certain way to fit the criteria of the movie. For example, the lead characters have to be insanely hot and charming.
The lead character meets with a pretty girl, and they become fast friends without realizing that they are attracted to each other even though the audience sees it. In most cases, the lead actress is always clueless about how pretty she is, and it is the hero of the film to point this out.
They then realize their love for each other and fall in love. This is the same old story that has been repeated over and over again that it has become boring, but the newest film Isn’t It Romantic has brought a fresh twist. Isn’t It Romantic talks about love, the ups and downs experienced, and also contains humor. The film was recently released on Netflix, and it is the complete opposite of the cliché love stories.
Rebel Wilson plays the role of Natalie who is the lead character. Natalie lacks self confidence in herself thanks to her mother who would always ridicule Natalie as she was growing up. Due to the constant ridicule from her mother, Natalie grew up with the notion that love was not meant for her and she would stay single for the rest of her life. Natalie’s low self-esteem has also affected her relations at work as the other employees treat her like a waiter rather than seeing her as one of them.
Natalie is a qualified architect and is working on a new project involving a hotel. She lives in New York in a crummy apartment. Things get interesting after Natalie is robbed and she faints after hitting her head. She wakes up to find herself in a decorated hospital room with a good-looking doctor.
She has undergone some makeover as she has makeup on and the hospital is way out of her league. Under normal circumstances, she would have woken up in a tiny hospital with underpaid nurses and doctors who are always bitter, but this is not normal circumstances.
Natalie’s life is now stuck in a romantic comedy which revolves around her. One thing about Natalie is that she hates rom-coms with a passion as they depict love as easy to find and happens to anyone contrary to her beliefs. She is ever complaining about these films, but now she is stuck in one of her own. Isn’t It Romantic rounded up all the typical clichés and put them in the 90-minute film but were still able to send out a message of their own.
It is a lively movie that is worth the attention that it is receiving. Rebel Wilson has brought out her fun and wild side in the film, and she was able to embody Natalie perfectly. Rebel is very talented and never disappoints in any project she undertakes. Her fans are very happy for her and hope to see more such films in the movie.
