You know, it's funny. We've watched racist moment after racist moment be excused by sycophants of the Orange Fuhrer. We've watched the Republican Party betray all of it's supposed 'values' for a reality...

Movie BROview – ‘Isn’t It Romantic’

by | Feb 22, 2019 | Movie Reviews | 0 comments

Right here, I want to speak to the bros.
To the guys who have to go to films that the woman wants to see from time to time.
And don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a relationship film here and there…if it’s done well.
I’ll happily watch a ‘Notting Hill’, a ‘Love Actually’, a ‘The Notebook’.
I’m not a TBS ‘Movies For Guys Who Like Movies’ type of guy.
I swear, I’m not!

That said, as guys we know that sometimes we have to see things that we would otherwise never lend our minds and wallets to.
I think this is what people mean when they talk about relationships being hard work.
I don’t know…maybe it’s other stuff too, but this certainly seems pretty high up there.

About a month ago, and while we were seeing ‘On The Basis Of Sex’, the trailer for ‘Isn’t It Romantic’ played. Here was a film that was going to make fun of all of the worst aspects of what we’ve all come to know as the ‘Rom-Com’.
The Romantic Comedy.

When the trailer was finished, the woman leaned over to me and said “That looks funny. We should go see that.”
Now I didn’t feel I needed to see it, but I felt that I could be down with a film that makes fun of the clichéd and very played out tropes of the standard Rom Com.

WOW, was I wrong!

The true magic of ‘Isn’t It Romantic’, is that it sets out to be a film that ridicules romantic comedies, while in the process becomes perhaps the very worst romantic comedy that I’ve ever seen! It literally becomes every single cliché that it’s ridiculing…right before our very eyes!
It somehow managed to take what could have been a spectacular premise and turns it into one of the laziest, and most uninspired things imaginable.

All, and I’ll repeat that…ALL of our laughter was at the expense of the film, not because of it’s comedic chops.
It was horrible beyond being horrible.
It punched you in the face with it’s mediocrity, and unlike the Jussie Smollett attack, this one was real!

Bros….‘Isn’t It Romantic’ is where you must draw the line!!
I have suffered so you don’t have to.
If she tries to make you see it, bro down real hard!

Not in the theater.
Not on Blu-Ray.
Not on cable.

Just say ‘NO!’.

Go Ahead, Call Me Fredo One More Time!

All day I'm seeing people saying that 'Fredo' isn't the 'N Word' for Italians. I disagree. Sure, to the rest of society, and in the big picture...no, it's not the N Word. But to Italians? I said it before...
