    What to Know

    • Rebel Wilson also produced the film.

    • Screenwriter Erin Cardillo says she wrote this script 9 years ago.

    • The movie opens Feb. 14th.

    "Isn't it Romantic" is a rom com that doesn't take itself too seriously which is exactly what makes it great. Every romantic comedy in the last several decades has relied on certain tropes that make it fall into the rom com category. This film sees those cheesy moments, and blows them up into a hilarious, romp that never lets the audience forget we're all in on the joke.

    The film stars Rebel Wilson, who also served as producer. She plays Natalie, a rom com hater who through an awkward encounter with a potential suitor, bumps her head and finds herself in the middle of a very corny rom com. We get to follow her journey as she resists the silly situation she's found herself in, and ultimately discovers who her true love is. The best part? It's not all who you think it will be.

    Adam Devine plays her best friend/unrequited love in the office. He and Rebel have an adorable chemistry that fans have been on board with since the Pitch Perfect movies. Adding into the mix the hilarious Liam Hemsworth and Priyanka Chopra and you have a delightful mix of real and fantasy love interests.

    "Isn't it Romantic" hits theaters on Valentine's Day. It stars Rebel Wilson, Adam Devine, Liam Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, Betty Gilpin and Brandon Scott Jones. It was directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson.
