When in Rome

Under normal circumstances I would trash a chick flick like this one but there was something I found oddly compelling about WHEN IN ROME. Aside from the stargazing aspect and there are many, this reminded me of the old romantic comedies such as THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN which this is obviously a homage or rip-off of. While it starts out slowly and Kristen Bell is annoying as all hell, it quickly picks up and she does win your heart. The more jaded of my readership will certainly not enjoy this baby so stay clear but those you still enjoy the classic laughers of the '50s will find this light hearted fare to their tastes.
