There are few funnier women than Rebel Wilson working in film right now, and now the actress has turned the traditional rom-com on its head with a comedy poking fun at the genre.
Isn’t it Romantic makes a joke of every traditional element to Hollywood romantic comedies, and Aussie Rebel is its leading lady.
Here’s everything you need to know about the film.
When is Isn’t it Romantic coming to Netflix?
Isn’t it Romantic is exclusive to Netflix and will be streaming on the service from Thursday, February 28.
What is it about?
Like all rom-coms made since the dawn of time, Isn’t it Romantic features an architect – except this one is leading lady Natalie, and she’s not very successful at it.
Of course, Natalie lives in New York City, but her work and personal life are a shambles with next to no opportunities on either side.
However, on the advice of her friends, Natalie decides to be more open to advances from strangers… unfortunately making a connection with a mugger and managing to get knocked out cold during the attack.
When she wakes up, Natalie’s entire life seems to have been given the rom-com treatment, with her as the central character living in a ridiculously luxurious apartment, attracting impossibly gorgeous men, and doing well at work.
Natalie needs to work out how to get back to her normal life, and whether she can take any of her new and improved lifestyle with her.
Who stars in it?
Rebel Wilson plays main character Natalie, and will be familiar to viewers from Bridesmaids, Pitch Perfect, and How To Be Single.
She’s joined by Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth who plays her handsome client and love interest, Blake.
Adam Devine (Pitch Perfect) is her best friend Josh who only appears in her life after the accident, and Priyanka Chopra (Quantico) stars as yoga instructor Isabella.
The rest of the cast includes Tom Ellis, Betty Gilpin, Jennifer Saunders, and Brandon Scott Jones.
Isn’t it Romantic is available to watch on Netflix from Thursday, February 28.
