Written by Dana Fox, Erin Cardillo and Katie Silberman ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ is a new film set to be released on Valentine day this year. Check it out on Netflix (United Kingdom) and Warner Bros. Pictures in the United States.
The plot revolves around a 25-year-old architect, Natalie who has been pessimistic about love all her life. She even hates romantic comedy films because she sees them as fantasy. Follow Rebel Wilson on Twitter and Instagram
Natalie’s life takes a complete turnaround when she hits her head on a subway pole. Rebel Wilson wakes up in a different world where everything centers on a romantic comedy film. In the beginning, Natalie seems to know what to do until Priyanka Chopra shows up. Other stars in the movie include; Liam Hemsworth, Adam DeVine (who co-starred Pitch Perfect with Rebel Wilson) and Betty Gilpin.
Isn’t it romantic is similar to the 2018’s film I Feel Pretty, in some aspects, where Amy Schumer featured as the lead character. Both films address issues to do with body image.

Since she was very good with numbers in high school, Rebel Wilson’s first choice of career was mathematics. However, she would later obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre & Performance Studies and Bachelor of Law in 2009 from the University of New South Wales. Her conviction that she would do well in acting grew in an odd way.
She contracted malaria during her one year stay in South Africa, where she was working as a former Australian’s Youth Ambassador for Rotary International. The illness gave her hallucinations where she saw herself as an accomplished actress who even won an Oscar award. Rebel decided to pursue acting as a career.
Rebel Wilson has someone else to thank – her high school drama teacher. Mrs. Bowmaker encouraged Rebel to participate in the Tournament of Minds. The Aussie Creative Competition featured various segments such as performing and improvising. Her participation in the competition brought her out of her shell.
Rebel Wilson attended the Australian Theatre for Young People where she was lucky to win an international scholarship funded by Nicole Kidman. Thanks to the scholarship, she moved to New York, where she appears to have found her breakthrough. While in New York, Rebel got the opportunity to train with The Second City.
Through Sydney Theatre Company, the accomplished actress made an appearance at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The very first time she got the attention of the public was in 2002, thanks to The Westie Monologues – a stage musical that she wrote, produced, and starred in. Other performances that she wrote, starred in and produced include Confessions of an Exchange Student and Spunks. As they say, the rest is history. The fact that Rebel Wilson starred in the ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ is worth all the celebrations.
