  • An inert comedy starring Kristen Bell as a workaholic unlucky in love, When in Rome is a rom-bomb. show more

  • The latest demonstration of the impossibility of making a good movie from a bad script is provided by When in Rome, a romantic comedy approved by the previous regime at Disney. show more

  • It is neither deep nor intelligent, but it's not intended to be either. The saving grace of the otherwise generic product is that Bell's vivacity and Duhamel's rakish charm allow the viewer to root for them. show more

    I highly recommend that others pass on watching this film. It has a great cast of talented actors but the plot and directing were deplorable. This is only the 2nd film I've ever abandoned ship on, but after 25 minutes I just couldn't take it any more and had to leave the theatre; I cant get my 2 dollars back but I did manage to salvage some of my time. 0 stars for me.

    Serious, hard working, ambitious, "Beth"(Kristen Bell) is off to Rome for her sister's weeding, Blackberry in hand. Sidelined jock "Nick" is also attending the wedding on the groom's side. Boy meets girl, sparks fly, then boy waits a very long time to close the deal. The reason for the delay is the "Fontana de Amour" just outside the church. Here coins are tossed by aspiring romantics. After the wedding, a tipsy and unhappy Beth plucks a few coins out of the fountain launching a series of unlikely events with four male suitors who she has never met. Danny DeVito is mis-cast as not very funny sausage king "Al", old enought to be "Beth's" grandfather. This film is like light beer, not very filling but good for a quick pick me up.
