Isn’t it romantic, a movie featuring Rebel Wilson, a graduate from the Australian Theatre for Young People and a one-time MTV awards winner, deviates from the normal expectations and norms of romantic comedies. Bright and colorful scenes normally characterize them, and so do unattainable hot leads who are attracted to each other but slow to discover, lead’s sexless best friend with no independent story and a clumsy but adorable woman.
In this case, however, Rebel Wilson is unable to realize that her best friend Devine is perfect for her. The movie, to some extent, fails to emancipate itself from the norms of the genre.
In the movie, the Australian born actress, songwriter, and producer is the heroine and features as Natalie. She is told by Jennifer Saunders who acts as her mother that for her to find a mate to marry, the man must require a visa.

This breaks her confidence really hard, and she carries this into adulthood. She then moves to New York where she is an architect, but instead of being treated as such, she is regarded as coffee goffer. Read more: Isn’t it Romantic Trailer | Glamour and Pitch Perfect for Rebel Wilson | VanityFair
Her treatment does not reflect the fact that she is a qualified architect who is in fact in charge of designing a new hotel. Natalie is robbed in the subway where she badly hits her head and is hospitalized. When she wakes up, instead of a bored, overworked doctor, she meets a hot doctor in a private room full of flowers and extremely dazzling light which marks the start of her romantic comedy life.
The soundtracks are awesome, filled with romantic tunes and marvelous radio hits from Vanessa Carlton, Donna Lewis, Annie Lenox, and Six Pence None the Richer. The movie as well brings life to the normal over-used statements, plots, and ideas of romantic comedy movies.
Accompanied by loads of satire, the movie is entertaining, and it even encompasses the non-romance-comedy lovers’ type of audience. Wilson as well, with her good sense of humor, fits in as a perfect cast giving more light to the movie. Also, her ability to identify her weaknesses and boldly come out to point them out in a humorous way makes her a perfect cast.
Formation of the characters is not complete or cannot otherwise be classified as so since they are thinly written. There is a wave of disappointment as well when Australian actors playing Australian characters use American vocabulary when talking to each other.
