So, uh, gets a little bit awkward when two of the biggest stars in Australia team up for a rom-com, only for it to skip the movie cinemas altogether and land on Netflix.
Despite a heavy press tour, “Isn’t It Romantic” starring Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth is headed down that path.
The final nail in the coffin was when Netflix distributed an email today stating the new movie would drop on February 28 through the streaming service.
I mean, are we upset that we can get the new Rebel / Liam movie for free with cheaper popcorn and wine?… Not really.
It just takes us back to the days of the Olsen twins ‘straight to VHS’ releases.
And let’s face it, they’re still doing JUST FINE!
“Isn’t It Romantic” pokes fun at traditional rom com movies.
“After hitting her head, an architect who hates romantic comedies wakes up to find her unremarkable life has become a dazzling, cliché-driven rom-com,” the synopsis on Netflix states.
Even if the Warner Bros production was dumped from a cinema release and moved to Netflix, the trailer still looks promising for a light, easy watch and a bit of a laugh.
