When in Rome: Review

When in Rome:
91 mintues

Plot :
Disillusioned with romance during her whirlwind trip to Rome, an ambitious New Yorker defiantly swipes a few magic coins from a "foolish" wishing fountain, inadvertently igniting the passions of a motley crew of suitors as she's pursued by a handsome reporter with charm to spare. Beth (Kristen Bell) is at a point in her life where love seems like a luxury she just can't afford. Years of waiting for that perfect romance has made Beth bitter, and one day, while vacationing in Rome, she cynically plucks a handful of coins from a local fountain of love. Almost immediately thereafter, Beth finds herself fending off the advances of a diminutive sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a lanky street magician (Jon Heder), a doting painter (Will Arnett), and a narcissistic male model (Dax Shepard). Meanwhile, a smitten reporter (Josh Duhamel) does his best to convince Beth that true love isn't just a topic of fairy tales and romance novels.


Favorite Line(s): "You smell like lavendar" You smell like livestock"

" If you can't reach the dashboard you can hold onto my washboard. Just let me know".

My Review: I thought this was a cute and funny movie. Enjoyable! I mean if you go into watching this movie with extremely high hopes than of course you are going to get let down. Go into just wanting to see a feel good, LIGHT movie and you will be happy. Maybe I am a hopeless romantic but I liked the story line and there is no doubt that if I went to Rome, I would believe all the legends. For me it seems to go hand in hand with traveling to new places.

My Rating: 4 stars!

Until next time...
Happy Reading!
