Romantic comedies revolve around the same theme and setting. First, they are set in beautiful scenes with bright lights and colors. The leading characters have a strong attraction that is clear to everyone else.
The leads also have a friend without a storyline; who are either very attractive or not attractive at all. It’s like their role is to magnify the traits of the main character. Well, Isn’t It Romantic follows a similar setting.
After showing in theaters only for the last two weeks, Isn’t It Romantic is now on Netflix. That means you can stream it from the comfort of your home.
The movie starts with a young version of Natalie (Rebel Wilson) the main lead, watching Pretty Woman romantic comedy. Her mother discourages her from believing the film since it does not happen in real life. Natalie grows up hating romantic comedies and romance at large.
Twenty-five years later, Natalie still hates romantic comedies and romance at large. Natalie is now an architect based in New York, though she is likely to be sent for coffee and not tasked with complex tasks like designing an upcoming skyscraper.
