When in Rome

I. Loved. This. Movie.

It seems like I haven't watched a movie with a really great hero in a long time.
This guy was a really great hero.

I don't do plot summaries--if you want to know what happens, watch it. :-)
It is rated PG-13, and we didn't watch it on ClearPlay, but there wasn't much bad stuff. You can read the review on Plugged in Online here

I loved that parts of it took place in Rome. Sometime, before I die, I'm going there.
And Italy is a lot more awesome than Ireland. 
(Which is part of why I liked this movie better than Leap Year. Also because the hero's name 
was Nick instead of Declan. Yeah.)

This guy was scary.

She didn't have very pretty/decent clothing, but she had good hair. And I really liked her as a heroine.
A lot more relatable and interesting than some.

These are some of the guys who are in love with her. They were all... creepy.

Ack. This guy. He isn't quintessentially gorgeous. But he's good looking. And tall. And hilarious. Which is definitely enough to make me happy.

This was one of my favorite parts:
Beth: "You think you're pretty charming, don't you?"
Nick: (thinking) "Yeah, a little bit."
Beth: "Well, you are, okay?" (walks off).

I loved it. :-)

Mostly I liked him so much because he was totally, outrageously in love with her, 
and pursued her until he finally got her. I loved that.
I also loved that was was so much taller than her. (Did I already say that?)

He had a pretty cool leather jacket, too.

Have you seen it? What did you think?


  1. They could have left some stuff out, but over all I thought it was pretty good.
    Certainly better message then a lot of romantic comedies.

    Cute pics.

  2. I haven't seen it yet, but it's nice to hear about a movie where the GUY actually does some pursuing. A lot of the time lately the girl is doing the running. Personally I don't think I'd ever feel secure in my relationship if I had done the pursuing.

  3. You guys watch lots of movies without me.

  4. We watch movies without you, Benjamin, because we miss you so much and are looking for something fun to do when you're not here. :-(

    I don't know if we could say there weren't any problem areas in this movie. I can't remember the details, but I do remember wishing some parts weren't there.

    But I thought the overall story was great, and there were some really funny parts in it.

  5. Haven't seen it :( ...only previews and trailers! You GOTTA love that he is so WAY taller than her. ;) Cheers for tall guys!!

    "Can somebody call the vet..." cough! choke! that guy is SO creepy. ick!!!

  6. oh my gosh, I need to see this!!!! I will, as soon as I can borrow it from somebody. My parents *rarely* buy a movie unless we borrow it from somebody and watch it...THEN they decide...:P :D Glad you liked it so much! ;)

  7. I havnen't seen it yet..looks great though!
