Let’s be clear: When In Rome does not look very good. It seems like nothing more than your basic romantic comedy based on that old idea of visitors going to Rome throwing coins into the Trevi Fountain and then something magical/odd happening to them. In most cases it’s that you are bound to return to Rome; in this movie, the spin is that she takes coins from the fountain. In any case, there’s been about 30-40 movies already made based around this tradition, when really it has no basis in fact other than it was in a movie itself! But enough of a history lesson to you all. The point is, this movie is going to be atrocious, but since Kristen Bell is in it, we’ll probably still allowed ourselves to get dragged to it. If you need an explanation, see below.
