Maggie is an uptight, single mother and college writing teacher from New York City. In an effort to reconnect with her troubled teen daughter Summer, she decides to embark on a journey to a Tuscan village that she frequented in her younger days. Upon arrival, Maggie runs into Luca, a handsome former lover who is still a bachelor and lives with his eighty-year-old mother, Carmen. Summer (missing her "bad boy" boyfriend in NYC) and Carmen (secretly planning a wedding against Luca's wishes to Marcelino, her one true love in Rome) impulsively steal Luca's car and race off to Rome. Maggie and Luca quickly pursue allowing the two mismatched couples to spend some time together and develop a new understanding of each other.
This film tells the story of a divorced woman who takes her teenage daughter to Italy, in order to find the Italian man who swept her of her feet for two months twenty years ago.
"All Roads Lead to Rome" is fun to watch because it's a comedy and a romantic comedy in one. The comedy part is the daughter Summer and her moodiness, and the subsequent road trip that leads to much hilarity. The romantic comedy part is quite sweet because there are three different relationships in the film, and viewers will have different evaluations of the three relationships. The last scene is romantic and touching. The scenery is beautiful, and the woman playing the TV journalist is very beautiful as well! It's refreshing to see Sarah Jessica Parker in an entertaining film. I enjoyed watching it.
