Rebel Wilson stars as Natalie in the February releasing New Line Cinema romantic comedy “Isn’t It Romantic.” The film follows Natalie as she wakes from a head injury acquired while fleeing a mugger on the subway to find that she has been transported into a romantic comedy setting, a genre of films she enjoyed as a child but no longer thinks of as a viable film genre. As she explores this new world, she finds that her life has materially improved with her apartment, wardrobe and the rest of her life being much fancier and more expensive than it once was.
