My review of Isn’t It Romantic, 2019 – ½ http://bit.ly/2XPyPLu
Not sure what this film is derived from. It goes into a romantic universe but the way there is uneven and unsure. I didn’t know where the pretend began actually. None of this is reality, I know that’s not what we go to the movies for. Still, a movie like When Harry Met Sally appeals to me more as a rom com because I recognize the struggles, the orgasms, the reality.
Not so in this one. This could have been a chance for Rebel to legitimize herself apart from Pitch Perfect but it just didn’t happen. I love watching her on screen so I am still holding out hope she’ll get a better movie next time.
