You know that feeling of excitement and anticipation when you’re sitting in a dark theater, waiting for your movie to start, munching on over buttered popcorn, while watching a gazillion movie trailers, and you see one that trailer that you instantly say to yourself, “I gotta see that one!”. Well that’s what happened when I saw the previews for Rebel Wilson’s new movie, “Isn’t It Romantic”.

My girlfriends and I were on a Girl’s Night Out movie night and I instantly perked up in my seat when I saw Rebel Wilson on the big screen when the trailer started. After the trailer, I saw that we were all leaning forward in our seats to tell each other that yup, this was one for the books for another Girl’s Night Out.
I remember seeing Rebel Wilson for the first time in the movie “Bridesmaids”. She was playing “Brynn”, Kristen Wiig’s roommate in the movie and she was absolutely HILARIOUS! I had never seen her before and wondered who she was to the point that I had to watch the credits at the end of the movie to find out what her name was. And I never stay for the credits!
When the “Pitch Perfect” movies came out, I was hooked. Whenever I’ve seen Rebel Wilson, she really does steal the show, which is one of the reasons why “Isn’t It Romantic” is a must see for me. There’s bound to be comedic banter between Rebel Wilson and Adam Devine.

The two of them alone in “Pitch Perfect” made my stomach cramp from laughter. Hilarity ensues when the two of them are on the screen together. Add in the hunky Liam Hemsworth and the beautiful Priyanka Chopra, it’s the making for the perfect Girl’s Night Out or even a Valentine’s date with your significant other.
The story line itself for “Isn’t It Romantic” is different and out of the box which is a nice twist for the romcom genre which tends to recycle the same stories from movie to movie. But this one stands out on its own in more ways than one.
Rebel Wilson plays Natalie, an architect in New York who is a cynic when it comes to finding love. She finds herself getting knocked unconscious after being mugged and when she wakes up, she’s stuck in a PG-13 romcom! Oh, the creativity of Erin Cardillo and Dana Fox when they were writing the screenplay for this one!
