Rebel Wilson may not be your typical romantic comedy actor, but she fits into the formula just fine in the typical genre.
Being a pseudo-reluctant icon of another romantic comedy, “Isn’t It Romantic’’ is graced by fewer montages than many viewers may expect. However, one right thing is the first-act that serves as a turning point for the jaded architect who works at a New York firm. Rebel Wilson who plays Natalie reiterates her reasons for hating movies such as “The Wedding Singer’’ as well as “My Best Friend’s Wedding.’’
What she doesn’t know is that she is trapped in a romantic comedy of her life. Her rant is the movie’s way of signaling what has been planned ahead of the next hour. Honestly, it’s time someone did the justifiable review for the movie since the genre pokes the postmodern fun-setting of a typical comedy-drama.
