Isn’t It Romantic? Inside the Resurgence of the Beloved Rom-Com

  • The Wrap
About two weeks after Netflix released its hit summer romantic comedy “Set It Up,” screenwriter Dana Fox got a call to dust off an old rom-com screenplay — because the genre was back, baby!

After successes like “The Wedding Date,” “What Happens in Vegas” and “How to Be Single,” Fox went through years of struggle to get a rom-com made in the era of superhero blockbusters. But between Netflix and the surge of love for “Crazy Rich Asians,” the often-mocked genre is cool again — and Fox’s latest script, “Isn’t It Romantic,” hopes to ride the wave.

“I had been beaten up by studios so many times when I was trying to get movies made. I was told ‘we’re not making romantic comedies right now. It’s just not happening,'” Fox told TheWrap.

The meta Rebel Wilson comedy, which both embraces and mocks rom-com tropes, will try to

Film Review: Rebel Wilson in ‘Isn’t It Romantic’

Film Review: Rebel Wilson in ‘Isn’t It Romantic’
As a pseudo-reluctant example of yet another formulaic romantic comedy, “Isn’t It Romantic” features fewer montages than you might expect, but there’s one right about the first-act turning point in which jaded New York architect Natalie (Rebel Wilson) lays out all the reasons she hates movies like “The Wedding Singer” and “My Best Friend’s Wedding.” Oh, to see the full three-hour version of that screed, fleshed out with a PowerPoint presentation or performed as a one-woman Off Broadway show — now that would be a subversive answer to the genre!

What Natalie doesn’t realize is that she’s trapped in a middling romantic comedy of her own, and that her rant is really just the movie’s way of laying out the rules for what it plans to parody over the next hour or so. Frankly, it’s high time someone did for the meet-cute movie what

Celebrate Amy Adams' Birthday by Voting for Her Best Role Ever
It's time to celebrate, because today is Amy Adams' birthday! The American actress turns 44 today, so it seems only fitting that we take a look back on all of her impressive roles throughout her long career.  Sure, eating cake in her honor is another totally acceptable way to go, but we're going to stick with the best roles plan...at least for now. Throughout her career, Adams has proved that she is a chameleon on screen. She has been in rom-coms (like The Wedding Date), dramas (like American Hustle) and most recently has become the lead on the HBO miniseries Sharp Objects. With every project the actress has shown us her range and expertise as an actor and we are always...

“Girls Trip’s” Tiffany Haddish Has Two New Projects in the Works

Haddish in “Girls Trip

Thanks to Tiffany Haddish, we’ll never look at grapefruits the same way.

Set in Hell’s Kitchen, New York in the 1970s, “The Kitchen” centers on the Irish mob. After the FBI does a sweep and arrests several men, their wives take over the business.

‘Rogue One’: Dermot Mulroney Played Cello for Michael Giacchino’s Score

‘Rogue One’: Dermot Mulroney Played Cello for Michael Giacchino’s Score
For those who have watched “Mozart in the Jungle” you’ve probably seen Dermot Mulroney as world-renowned cello soloist Andrew Walsh. The actor, known for such films and series as “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” “Shameless” and “The Wedding Date,” really is a professional musician who picked up the cello at the age of seven.

As his acting career took off, music was put to the side until he became an established actor. Now, Mulroney’s most recent work as a cellist is being part of Michael Giacchino’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” score, where he held the 11th seat in the cello section, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Ten Stock Female Characters Hollywood Needs to Stop Writing

Kirsty Capes with ten stock female characters Hollywood needs to stop writing…

From Mary Sues to Disposable Women, Hollywood seems to have a problem with writing interesting and original female characters. It’s not a problem, I would argue, that seems to happen with male characters, and I for one find it interesting, if not a little disheartening, to pick apart some of my favourite women in film and realise that they are just another trope.

In an attempt to better identify when we’re presented with one of these tropes, I’ve put together a list of the most commonly occurring ones. My disclaimer is that, as you will see, some great characters and movies appear on this list, and identifying a character as a trope is in no way a reflection upon her or the movie as a whole. Some of the most fundamental tropes are also some

'Big Bang Theory' Season 9 Trailer Teases the Big Wedding
Is it too early to call this the wedding of the year? Yes, the cat has long ago been let out of the bag. Leonard and Penny are finally tying the knot in the The Big Bang Theory Season 9 premiere episode The Matrimony Momentum. And lt looks like Leonard's having a bit of a problem carrying Penny across the threshold. CBS has released the first trailer, and it looks like the couple's nuptials are very barebones, understated and definitely no frills as they enjoy their short honeymoon in Las Vegas.

This latest sneak peek debuted last night during the premiere episode of Late Show with Stephen Colbert. We get only a fleeting glimpse of Penny (Kaley Cuoco) in her wedding attire as she prepares for her very short walk down the isle with Leonard (Johnny Galecki). The rest of The Big Bang gang are watching everything go down via satellite.
