Isn’t It Romantic (2019)

dir. Todd Strauss-Schulson. Simple idea, single woman stuck in a romantic comedy, flawlessly executed. Constantly hilarious, but I imagine you need to be a fan of the romantic comedy genre (as I am). It pulls off the magic trick of satirizing romantic comedies, while simultaneously being a beautiful weepy romantic comedy itself. It’s packed full of visual gags, many in the background, it would be worth re-watching to try and catch them all. Rebel Wilson is hilarious. Excellent cameo by Jennifer Saunders, which they should not have revealed in the trailer. One of the funniest films I have seen in a long time, loved it.
