Romantic comedies are all the rage (again) these days thanks to “Crazy Rich Asians” and Netflix hits like “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.” But the genre is a nightmare for Rebel Wilson in the trailer for “Isn’t It Romantic?”
The movie stars Wilson as a cynical New York City architect who thinks rom-coms are “lies set to terrible pop songs.” Then, after suffering a head injury, she wakes up to find her life has become a rom-com, complete with cliches like a huge apartment with all the shoes, a handsome suitor (Liam Hemsworth) falling at her feet, and flash mobs dancing in the streets.
The trailer definitely has a tongue-in-cheek vibe and indicates the movie will relish poking fun at itself and others of its ilk. Wilson’s dry humor seems to be a perfect fit for a satirical take on romantic comedies.
“Isn’t It Romantic?” opens in theaters February 14.
