I was watch this movie waiting nothing of more, and I got surprised when the protagonist came into romantic universe and all the things that is cliche and she hates starts to happen, it's amazing how she deal with this, she get angry and it is very funny, I loved all the characters and your personality as real world as this new universe, one thing that is amazing is the direction of the movie, had plans very well done and I loved so much the musical moments, no question this movie will be able to come a classic.

Just plain enjoyable .

Light, entertaining and funny...

It was refreshing to see them pointing out flaws in the genre itself and calling out a lot of the stereotypes that are made with the lack of diversity, and the gay best friend cliché character Which in the end it turns out to be the average every day drug dealer.

I wouldn't pay cinema prices to watch it, but then again I won't pay cinema prices to watch a rom-com, my attitude to them pretty much matches the main characters in this movie (it's the "rom" part that bores me).

As cinema's most formulaic and over-played genre, I'm always happy to see a film taking a little pop at the romantic comedy, simply because there's so much to poke fun at.

That's how boring it was.

(If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.

Predictable from start to finish.

I see what the point of the movie is but it is neither entertaining nor moving wasted 2 hours of my life don't recommend would rather watch an actual cheesy rom-com

Cheesy humor + very predictable = meh.

Dont waste your time .

It was enjoyable, sweet, tongue in cheek, fun, and feel good.

Natalie is actually lying down on a hospital bed, immobilized; a patient in an intensive care ward.

It takes some of the most common cliché elements from rom-coms and plays with it so brilliantly (and/or foolishly) that most viewers will end up laughing and liking it.

That's life until she's knocked out fighting a mugger and wakes up to an alternate world where every single cliche of romcoms becomes true.

When Eliza changes her way of engaging the world by use of language, she transforms her reality.

Every joke in this movie is either predictable or super cheesy.

I am currently watching this movie and am that bored I'm writing a review...

Don't waste your time on this garbage, Rebel Wilson needs to change characters for once as she's always playing the same roles.

I enjoyed it more than I expected.

This movie was so enjoyable!

So yeah, what makes this movie original is actually a rip off from another movie BUT this movie was still enjoyable and cute.

Enjoyed it.

There were parts which were funny and then it got predictable.

Cheesy, annoying and boring.

The rest of the cast are also very enjoyable.

The movie was full of fun enjoyable scenes.

It's predictable tale is very generic, with obvious plot components being set up minutes into the film, which could have used some deviation.

Worst movie ever .

It was a cute movie that I enjoyed, though it was a little slow at first.

I think that Love Actually is one of the best romantic comedies because of the coldly rational reason that the shorter divided story-lines deletes the risk of drawing things out and boredom.

It was enjoyable and something to watch though.

Crap,waste of time.

Instead they come across as self-aware campy fluff that make the film enjoyable.

It's a waste of time.

Found it funny and entertaining.

While it's entertaining to see all the various tropes of a particular genre exposed in this method, these films still have to abide by these rules as well.

This will go down as one of the worst movies of the year.

Jokes were quite less, story line was witty , circled around cliches but never fell to them, exciting cast, length was short no time for any character to build much character, don't know why the hurry may be bad editing or it was mostly made for streaming.

It is very much predictable and has every cliché.

Wilson is charming but highly predictable and lacks subtlety.

I didn't find it funny, the "funny" lines and situations were seen before so many times that actually bored me.

The casting and acting and production values were good but the final product was boring.

Fun, lighthearted and entertaining.

A stunning cast let and some gorgeous aesthetics let down by a script straight out of high school writing class.

Men will find this movie enjoyable as well.

Rom-com's are a dime a dozen, they are predictable as all get out, This takes all that stuff and makes the Rom-com a joke.

A really enjoyable romantic comedy that parodies romantic comedies .

I was so bored, that I got up and left half way through.

Worst movie ever nothing new or creative.

My husband unwillingly attended and said he enjoyed it and he was laughing and having a good time.

Very entertaining!!!

I did get some laughs, and I understand what they were going for here, but it felt very disjointed.

It is very much predictable and cliché with its story.

Fun time, Laugh out loud moments and throughly enjoyable.

Worst movie I have seen in ages .

It is Bland.

completely predictable.

Very predictable, and boring .

The funny parts were few and the story was kind of predictable.

The ending was unexpected!

It seems that every cliché from every rom com she's ever seen, all of those things she discussed with Whitney, have come true.

Even if the plot is unoriginal and predictable, Isn't It Romantic has some funny jokes, a relatable protagonist you will root for, and a great sense of irony that makes this rom-com spoof funny and charming enough to be worth a watch at one point.

Overall, if you can avoid uncommon and distracting acting from a familiar face, this film is decent and enjoyable for a single viewing.

Rebel was far from loveable more irritating as hell, waste of 90 mins of my life

Feels forced, boring, and dull.

As a comedy it's funny, the characters are entertaining and interesting.

Like, yeah we see her march into her office and not take the other employees bullcrap anymore and she pitches her hotel parking lot design (although all she really does is make an analogy and then leave without actually presenting anything), and then it immediately falls back into typical cliche romantic comedy ending.

Isn't It Romantic takes this premise to the max early on, with a full-on parody of all things rom-com that makes for a rather cute and enjoyable opening.

The only thing about this corny film, that is entertaining in a weird way, is when you shake your head in disbelief about the silliness you are watching.

It was a different movie and I really enjoyed it.

It's funny lighthearted and entertaining throughout.

It is one of the worst movies I've ever seen!

It pokes fun at Rom-cons cliche moments, and also makes it it's own as a Romantic comedy.

I laughed at several parts, it was cute and charming and overall was an enjoyable time.

Rebel Wilson, as well as the entire cast were really enjoyable to watch.

So many things were unexpected and genius in this movie, it's honestly sad to see it have anything lower than 9 on here.

It was very cute and enjoyable to watch.

After a slow start, brought about by a combination of first-timer's stage fright and an inattentive waitress' clumsy amble near the karaoke machine cord, Natalie's wobbly acapella offerings is then suddenly and miraculously joined by found percussions and found vocalists, bringing "I Wanna Dance With Somebody(Who Loves Me)" to life.

I found this movie to be both weird and funny but totally enjoyable.

I waste my time.

Predictable and boring scenario;And frankly, I'm sick of this sort of movies that portray beautiful women in a negative way just because they are beautiful.

Light, funny & entertaining .

This movie is such a cliche I can't believe I've wasted almost 1h 30 min seeing it.

A fun, light, clever and thoroughly enjoyable time at the movies.

This movie was boring ridiculous dont waste ur time or money seeing it.

But, generic rom coms get panned, so why wouldn't a move that makes fun of them if it is just as disjointed?

The love quadrangle plays out as expected, yet thanks to the site gags and Rebel's zingers, it's quite entertaining.

Entertaining .

This movie was BORING.

Rebel Wilson stars as Natalie, a boring, everyday girl, who hates, despises even, romantic comedies due to a reality check her mother had given her when Natalie was young.

Anyways, I thought the movie was great, really funny, and the message of "love yourself" at the end was unexpected, and I thought it was awesome.

In an earlier scene, Selma tells Bill that as a little girl, she would always leave the theater before the last song was performed.

The end result, though it had some charm, was that "Isn't It Romantic" was rather bland as a romantic comedy.

Cliché movie about cliché romantic movies .

The movie was boring and predictable(like REALLY), as I said in the title.

It's silly, predictable and very boring.

Many of the jokes were just fat jokes for rebel, it had a sweet ending but it was very predictable.

This film was only 88 minutes and in this age of movies regularly clocking in at over 130 minutes, for me to say it's too long gives you an idea of how boring this movie was for me.

Boring .

Liam Hemsworth and Adam Devine we're also pretty funny and enjoyable.

Do yourself a favor and save your money and see a real movie.

My husband fell asleep half way through.

It was completely predictable (person hits their head and the rest of the movie is an alternate universe) and there was nothing that stood out.

As a genre that everyone knows well, this film doesn't hold back when going into extreme detail about various formulaic aspects of the rom-com, whether it be the pointless rivalry between female friends or the ever-present final dash to stop the wedding.

It started out with a few amusing ideas, but then failed to make the most of it, by a third of the way in, it was quite predictable, the acting often wooden, and the plot predictable.

Not sure I would have gone to the theatre to see it if I hadn't had to, but I enjoyed it.

Funny, and enjoyable parody.

With a major change of circumstance that sees Rebel Wilson trapped inside a romantic comedy, the film eventually just gives up on all its gags and little jabs at the genre, and instead goes into automatic as it develops the story and the various on-screen romances towards a disappointingly predictable conclusion.

A half spoof,half reality type movie which is entertaining as well as feel good.

Sometimes repetitive.

I thought the story was super cute, and the movie was short and fast paced.

We both enjoyed it.

Being a fan of RomComs, I found it entertaining, the storyline was good and I loved the ending.

In that, there's a lot to laugh at and enjoy when it comes to making fun of the rom-com formula, and Isn't It Romantic is a film that stays bold and confident in its delivery of that satire well throughout the first act, all the while impressing with nice humour, a pleasant lead performance from Rebel Wilson, and a sweet and enjoyable atmosphere all round.

It's pretty cliché, though.

A total trash and waste of time despite the fraud positive reviews by the fem nazis and pathetic sjw lemmings.

If you like fun, cheeky, and entertaining rom-coms with a bit of attitude, you will enjoy this.

Enjoyable enough for a Friday night in.

Were everyone is nice, every cliché that is in a romantic movie is for real, and her client Blake (Liam Hemsworth) is deeply in love with her.

Pretty funny and predictable.

The jokes are funny and Rebel Wilson's acting is always great & authentic, but overall it was really boring.

Horrible movie with no storyline.

Even though this movie tried to be a parody of all the romantic comedies, in fact, it ended up being a cliche itself.

It does have a few laughs and entertaining moments.

Priyanka Chopra (BAYWATCH) stars as the stunning competition-in-love for Natalie, and Adam Devine (PITCH PERFECT) is Josh, Natalie's nice guy co-worker and not-so-secret admirer who can't seem to escape the friend zone.

This is such a fun movie with all the Rom-Com cliche which works perfectly with the storyline.

but was boring.

Very Enjoyable .

I was so bored and didn't laugh once.

Starts a bit slow and during the first 20 min or so I was debating whether to just turn it off but then it picked uo and became thoroughly enjoyable.

It's perfectly pleasant, and thanks to its thoroughly enjoyable opening act, it's certainly better than most romantic comedies.

I get the whole idea of this movie that they are trying to make something new and it had that little twist to it like the kind of cliche but not really cliche but the movie was still cliche but they had that twist to it which made it a little bit different but I couldn't keep watching the movie because I was so bored.

I barely laughed and, quite frankly, I was just bored.

started out ok, but ultimately proved bland and disappointing .

really funny and entertaining .

Don't waste your time

It takes as many cliche's that you can think of about Rom-com's and just throws them at you.

Hemsworth and Wilson are an impossible couple and I really enjoyed it.

This movie is a waste of time.

enjoyable way to pass the time

Utter rubbish, don't waste your precious time on this drivel .

It's a very fun, cute, feel good movie to watch to take you away from your normal ho-hum day and got me to laugh out loud during several scenes.

Great cast, everyone was entertaining especially Rebel, and the directing was on point.

Watched it with my daughter & we really enjoyed it.

However, the writing was a little too childish and predictable, and the humor was almost infantile, I didn't laugh once - just a couple of smiles here and there.

Musical numbers ok but this movie dragged from start.

I fell asleep twice during the movie.

However this movie is as cliché as it could be.

My cynical hubby - who despises Rom-Coms - actually enjoyed it.

Yes, it is not perfect, but it is memorable and worth watching.

This movie is super funny, very enjoyable made by a talented cast.
