New York City architect Natalie works hard to get noticed at her job but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city's next skyscraper.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Interesting rom com that makes fun of romantic comedies. Even more than that, it turns the concept of rom coms inside out. Rebel Wilson is highly entertaining, as usual. But, she's not too over the top here, which allows this one to maintain just the write note of fun and frolic. Recommended b... Read More »

This movie has solidly excellent philosophy of life: The only one you can surely expect love from is yourself, be you fat, LGBT, whatever race or religion. It's the basis of the Golden Rule, and of every true religion: Love and treat others as you love and treat yourself.

I enjoyed a simply light comedy very much.

funny, was good to watch a movie that was chill and about being happy with yourself and finding the perfect person for you :)

A spoof on the usual romantic comedies that entertains you with laughs. There's plenty of familiar faces in this movie and it's light entertainment.

This is an atypical rom-com! It smashes the 4th wall and gently teases all other rom-coms, from "When Harry Met Sally" to "Jerry MaGuire". There are many laugh out loud moments. I dare you not to sing along with some of the soundtrack.

Delightful if somewhat predictable meta romantic comedy.

It’s different, light hearted and so funny. Good movie.

This movie was light, fun and entertaining. Rebel Wilson was likeable as the lead and Liam Hemsworth fulfilled his obligations as a handsome rogue. This won't win any awards as best picture of the year, but it was fun, frothy and pleasant. This movie makes fun of a lot of romantic comedy cliches, so if you've seen lots of romantic comedies, it is fun to see them get gently spoofed. It was quite enjoyable overall.

Blake: You are beguiling.

Natalie: Did you just learn that word, cause you tend to say it a lot.

Blake: If you want me to stop saying it, I will. But you're gonna have to stop being so damn beguiling!
