Rom-coms are apparently back in the game in the film industry these days. Some of the ones in the list are “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before“, “Stella’s Last Weekend“, “In A Relationship“, “Crazy Rich Asians“, “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”, “Love, Simon“, “Juliet, Naked“, “Destination Wedding“, “Second Act“, and many more. With all these rom-com films, Isn’t It Romantic stands out from the crowd. The reason? It basically inverts the tropes that come with the genre.
Todd Strauss-Schulson directs this film. It narrates the story of a cynical New York architect who got trapped in a PG-13 rom-com alternate universe after getting whacked in the subway by a mugger.
The trailer itself features the most common trappings of a rom-com film. These include gay best friends, kiss in the rain, musical numbers, and cute meet-ups. The only difference is that the lead role isn’t your typical main character. Instead of the pretty lady who exudes the Julia Roberts vibe, we get Rebel Wilson. If you don’t know here yet, she’s the plus size lady from the Pitch Perfect franchise.
Aside from Wilson, Isn’t It Romantic features Adam Devine, Liam Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, and Betty Gilpin as well.
