When in Rome is so bad, it deserves a Hollywood sized reboot. My wife and I watched it and it was bad, really really bad.
When in Rome stars Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel and is directed by the god awful Mark Steven Johnson.
The movie is about a girl who is stuck with a curse of multiple men falling in love with her against their will. But she falls in love with a man, who may or may not really love her... because of the curse of course. Get it? Got it? Bad!
I don't know where to start. Every aspect of the movie was bad. The story is stupid, not even good enough to be in the terrible romantic-comedy genre. The acting is so bad, so unfunny, which came as a surprise to be honest with you. I like both Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Duhamel (Transformers), and neither delivered. Not only did they fail, so did all of their co-stars. The supporting cast is awful, annoying, unfunny and flat out forgettable.
The director, oh boy the director. Mr. Mark Steven Johnson. It took awhile after the worthless Ghost Rider to get another gig huh? Well Johnson probably wont get too many more chances in Hollywood if he keeps pumping out the same worthless junk. He does nothing to help this abysmal story. The pacing is off, the timing is off, poor casting, editing; really though, this movie is THAT bad.
I always love posting these kind of reviews for movies I hated, because I'll get an email from ONE fan to defend the movie. On this, I CHALLENGE someone, anyone, to come up with a reason why this movie doesn't deserve to be obliterated by me. I'm telling you all, I did not laugh one, single, time. Oooouf! I want my 2 hours back.
