Director Todd Strauss-Schulson is the king of movie within a movie. His second feature film, The Final Girls, blew audiences away at its SXSW world premiere. That movie is about a bunch of teens stuck in a 1980s slasher film that’s filled with 1980s slasher cliches. His third outing, Isn’t it Romantic, is anti-rom-com rom-com. It stars Rebel Wilson as Natalie, someone who grew to hate rom-coms. She bops her head and winds up being stuck in real life rom-com and must figure out the key to getting out, even if that means doing what she doesn’t care for: falling in love. Isn’t It Romantic is a super cute and astute date movie. It has the laughs guys will love, and all the rom-com cliches purposely inserted as a wink to the audience while also being a rom-com as whole.
It’s a bummer this isn’t available on 4K but it looks great on Blu-ray in its 1080p format in a 2.39:1 aspect ratio. The audio is DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (48kHz, 24-bit), and comes with two special features: Deletes Scenes and I Wanna Dance!, where the stars of the film talk about the big dance number performed in the movie.
