Theater Thursday


If you haven't guessed by now, Thursday means Theater Thursday here! This week's featured movie is When In Rome
When in Rome stars Kristen Bell as Beth, a curator at the Guggenheim in NYC. Beth lives for her job, so much so that she's let her love life take a back seat. When her sister springs it on her that she's getting married after knowing the guy for two weeks, Beth finds herself in Rome, Italy for the wedding. 

Not really believing in love anymore, Beth continues to obsesses over a gallery show that's only days away from opening. At the reception, she meets Nick (Josh Duhamel), the groom's best man. They instantly have a spark between them but when Beth thinks Nick is just like every other guy she's ever met, she gets drunk and starts stealing coins from the fountain. 

When Beth gets back to NYC and realizes that she's now controlling the emotions of all the guys who's coin she took from the fountain, she goes on a mission to righting her wrong. Along the way, Nick comes back into the picture and wants to show her what true love is really like. However, Beth believe's that she's holding one of his coins.

I saw this and just kind of thought "eh". But it was a cute chick flick.

Lin said...

I have to agree with Krysten, it was 'eh'. I thought for sure it was going to be cuter than it was or I was going to love it more than a Sandra Bullock rom/com...I didnt. It was worth the rental price of $2 though :)

Kerr said...

I want to see this!

I saw this on a flight home to LA. It was cute, but not a movie I'd buy.

p.s. how much longer until the big move? I'm SO jealous of you.

I remember seeing the beginning of this movie, but I have no idea why I didn't finish it. I think it was while I was traveling for work, so maybe I fell asleep?

I was just thinking of this movie the other day- that I wanted to watch it. lol!!!

Kris said...

I thought it was cute but I will forever see Kristen Bell as Sara Marshall. Which means every character of hers cheated on Jason Segel and I hate her for it. LOL

Ashley said...

This movie wasn't nearly as good as I had hoped it would be. There were definitely adorable moments, but I didn't love it. :O(
