When in Rome

Released 2010 Rating PG in UK
Director Mark Steven Johnson Writer/s David Diamond, David Weissman
Starring Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Angelica Huston, Danny DeVito
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A young woman who puts her career above any personal relationship goes to her sister’s wedding in Rome, and in a moment of inibriation fishes five coins out of a possible Trevi Fountain, which apparently results in the men who threw the coins in falling in love with her. She is pursued, but believes that a man to whom she is attracted is one of the five. What to do?
Content Some parties, some pursuit by suitors which is mildly amusing, because the suitors are complete oddballs. Time spent in the Guggenheim, her place of work. A bit of romance. No-one gets their shirt off except one of the suitors.
A View This is pretty lightweight stuff and at an hour and a half not too difficult to sit through. But probably not worth more than £1/1€/$1 to watch. Kristen Bell was later to marry Dax Shepard the guy who got his shirt off.
