TL;DR – And we can’t wait!
Rebel Wilson or better known as Fat Amy from Pinch Perfect is now Natalie, an Australian architect living in New York City, who has always believed that what she has seen in romcoms is all fictional and it doesn’t happen in real life. But after she thwarted a mugger at a subway station, only to be knocked out while fleeing, Natalie woke up one day to discover that she is self aware of her existence in a “PG-13” romcom universe and tries to escape every cliche in order to finally fall in love and achieve the happily ever after that will bring her back to reality.
Yes, that’s pretty much what the movie Isn’t It Romantic is all about but can you name the above-mentioned cliches before clicking on the movie trailer below?
Let’s give it a go.
- Gay BFF
Random singing and dancing
Ridiculously Handsome Guy that will fall in love with you at first sight.
Makeover. (You know, the whole ugly duckling turning into a very beautiful swan overnight.)
Falling in love with someone, getting your heart broken and eventually realising that the right one is actually your friend that has always been there for you
Hidden agenda/s. One character will have a secret he or she is trying to hide (usually a bet), and after the other character falls for them, they find out the secret, and breaks up. But for some reasons they will end up happily ever after still. Or at least until the movie ends.
That long run to airport to catch up with the other party or something like that.
As cliché as all these sound, that’s exactly why I love romantic comedies and and I can’t wait to watch this.
And yes, of course, to make things even more cliché, the movie’s will be released on Valentine Day’s 14 February 2019.
