When In Rome Blu-Ray Review

When In Rome Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: An ambitious young New Yorker (Kristen Bell), disillusioned with romance, takes a whirlwind trip to Rome where she defiantly plucks magic coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of those who threw them in: a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (John Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnet) and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, how will she know if his love is the real thing? 

Review: When In Rome is..well, you guessed it fellas, its a chick flick.  No shock there, right?  What is rather shocking is how entertaining it manages to still be.  It follows the life of an A-type working girl that can't loosen-up.  She finds herself in Rome and a magical fountain gives her these five suitors.  Its a silly concept, but comes off rather cute.  Kristen Bell makes up with her charm for the lack of personality and likability in Josh Duhamel.  

The show is honestly stolen by appearances from Danny DeVito and Anjelica Houston.  These two are hilarious and powerful on screen, as always.  Appearances from Dax (Baby Mama) and John Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory) are also highlights.  This is one of those films that is really made by the supporting cast.  Overall, its fun and enjoyable and great to watch with your sweetheart.
