Who is Rebel Wilson?

The name Rebel Wilson is famous in the comedy film industry and stands for the 39-year-old actress, singer, producer and writer Rebel Melanie Elizabeth Wilson.

Born in New South Wales Australia, Rebel attended her earlier education and completed high school in 1997. Being good with numbers, it was easier for her to choose mathematics as her career.

After her leaving the University of South Wales in 2009, she was based in South Africa where her current film career was officially born after attacks of malaria-induced hallucinations that made her see herself as an Oscar-winning actress.

Before this, she had appeared in a couple of films since attending Australian Theatre for Young People, but awards started streaming in in 2008 after the South Africa malaria infection.

The new film, ISN’T IT ROMANTIC

Featuring Rebel Wilson as Natalie, Liam Hemsworth as Blake, Priyanka Chopra as Isabella, Jennifer Saunders as Natalie’s mother and Tom Ellis as the hot doctor among others, Isn’t it Romantic comes as a romantic comedy film that tries to subvert the rules of romcoms but eventually falls under the trends of the genre it is made of.

Romcoms are characterized by a couple of trends; two good looking leads who will at a point be attracted to one another, a problem that keeps them from discovering their feelings, a clumsy lead female, a supportive friend who has no romantic story to her name and the expected happy ending.

The plot in the movie

A young girl, Natalie, is made by her mother to believe that love and fairy tales are not meant for the girls of her kind. This is accompanied by the reminder on the untrue fantasy behind romance that makes Natalie grow up in doubt of love and wallowing in low self-confidence.

When working in New York in a design for a new hotel as a junior architect, her male colleagues do not notice her neither do they treat her as the professional she is.

Her life changes drastically when in the subway and encounters a mugger. After hitting her head, she wakes up in a private hospital ward with flowers, flattering lights and a handsome man instead of the normal busy emergency room. Now her life is just the drama she grew up hating and is now a stranger in her new romcoms life.

The film is way better than expected

The film gets the details right as Natalie has to learn to cope with her rival at work, the stylish gay New York neighbor, terrifying moment when Blake starts noticing her and her supportive best friend.

In this setting, the film is able to fulfill the rules of romcoms while still maintaining a humorous spirit. Rebel Wilson fits perfectly as awkward Natalie playing into the character’s self-deprecating personality but remaining endearing.

With a current 3-star rating, Isn’t it romantic proves to be one of the ways to pass 90 free evening minutes on a weekday with an occasional giggle to distract you from the normal routine.
