Blu-Ray Review: ‘When in Rome’ Fails on Every Conceivable Level

22 June 2010 5:25 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Just when you thought Hollywood’s recent slate of romantic comedies couldn’t get any worse, along comes “When in Rome,” a film so deplorable that it should be arrested for cinematic harassment. The filmmakers seem hellbent on systematically humiliating each member of its gifted ensemble, while insulting moviegoers with the very notion that this exercise in laziness could be passed off as entertainment.

I once told Jason Reitman that “Juno” was the first film I ever wanted to date. “When in Rome” is not the first film I ever wanted to dump, but it surely is the first I ever wanted to file a restraining order against. It plays like a checklist of tired tropes that I never want to see again at the movies. A “magical” premise that’s merely an excuse for contrived plot arcs? Check. A neurotic female protagonist who constantly needs to be saved by her man? »
