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

Cheesy, annoying and boring.

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

However this movie is as cliché as it could be.

Men will find this movie enjoyable as well.

It's a waste of time.

started out ok, but ultimately proved bland and disappointing .

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).

Just plain enjoyable .

Found it funny and entertaining.

Musical numbers ok but this movie dragged from start.

Wilson is charming but highly predictable and lacks subtlety.

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.

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

The rest of the cast are also very enjoyable.

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.

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

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

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

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

The ending was unexpected!

completely predictable.

Worst movie I have seen in ages .

Predictable from start to finish.

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

enjoyable way to pass the time

Sometimes repetitive.

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.

I was so bored and didn't laugh once.

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

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.

I waste my time.

Light, funny & entertaining .

It's funny lighthearted and entertaining throughout.

but was boring.

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

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

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.

Cheesy humor + very predictable = meh.

It was very cute and enjoyable to watch.

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.

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.

It's silly, predictable and very boring.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

Fun, lighthearted and entertaining.

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

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

I enjoyed it more than I expected.

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

We both enjoyed it.

Crap,waste of time.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Enjoyed it.

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

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

Enjoyable enough for a Friday night in.

A really enjoyable romantic comedy that parodies romantic comedies .

The movie was full of fun enjoyable scenes.

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.

This movie is a waste of time.

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

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.

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.

Very Enjoyable .

That's how boring it was.

Worst movie ever nothing new or creative.

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

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

It's pretty cliché, though.

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

Watched it with my daughter & we really enjoyed it.

Worst movie ever .

It was enjoyable and something to watch though.

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

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

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

Cliché movie about cliché romantic movies .

Dont waste your time .

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.

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

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.

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

I fell asleep twice during the movie.

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

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

Light, entertaining and funny...

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.

Boring .

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.

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.

Horrible movie with no storyline.

Very predictable, and boring .

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

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

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

Don't waste your time

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

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.

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

really funny and entertaining .

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

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

It was a different movie and I really enjoyed it.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Entertaining .

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

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

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

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

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

Funny, and enjoyable parody.

Fun time, Laugh out loud moments and throughly enjoyable.

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.

This movie was so enjoyable!

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

It is Bland.

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

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.

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

Very entertaining!!!
