Isn't It Romantic

With a 66 percent critical approval rating and an audience score of 67 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, Isn't It Romantic is well worth a watch, with a consensus that "It follows as many genre conventions as it mocks, but Isn't It Romantic is a feel-good rom-com with some satirical bite -- and a star well-suited for both."
