Review: When in Rome

Except for boyfriends and husbands reluctantly dragged along to megaplexes by their significant others, few folks who actually bother to buy tickets to When in Rome likely will dislike this predictable but pleasant rom-com fantasy. Trailers and TV spots already have alerted potential audiences to expect formulaic froth: Romantic misadventures of exceptionally attractive people who, while aided or impeded by aggressively colorful supporting players, maneuver through comical contrivances both mundane and supernatural. This is a fairly generic product, but it should attract enough consumers to post respectable theatrical numbers. Upbeat buzz by satisfied customers could sweeten homevid biz. You can read my Variety review here.
