When In Rome 2010 Dir: Mark Steven Johnson, Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel. Rom Com

Beth Harper (Bell) is a young, successful real estate agent ... but she's completely unlucky in love. However, when the New Yorker travels to Rome to see her newlywed sister, she impulsively steals some coins from a reputed fountain of love, and is then aggressively pursued by a band of wannabe lovers.

trailer


I'll admit, this looks amusing (and i'm the one person who liked daredevil

Kristen Bell being unlucky in love? I already cannot believe it. Good cast, though.

"From the director of Daredevil and Ghost Rider..."

I understand he is a hack, but this seems like a reverse of the ordinary. Most of the time the hired gun director makes stuff like this first then gets to tackle a big-budget franchise.

Agreed. It made me miss Veronica Mars too.

This looks bad but I may rent it... Mark Steven Johnson is not a director I enjoy.

not to bring him into it, but the movie is rated PG-13 for some suggestive content

It's directed by the guy who did Daredevil and Ghost Rider, it comes out in January and the trailer advertises the soundtrack. Sounds like a stinker to me. Plus, I find it hard to believe that a woman who looks like Kristen Bell can't find right guy. Riiiggghhhhttt.

Yea, but if they would have cast a fairly "unattractive" actress in this movie would you want to go see it? I am excited Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel are the leads. By the trailer I thought they made her seem like a "workaholic" who didn't have time for relationships. Plus, I think it looks funny with Josh Heder and Dax Shepard in the supporting cast too. Just my opinion..

I can't wait to see all the colorful outfits.


OK but seriously, Mark Steven Johnson? I don't mind him doing shit like this if he promises never to do another superhero project again.

If you had the power to do so, I'd buy you a beer should we ever meet.

Re: When In Rome 2010 Dir: Mark Steven Johnson, Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel. Rom Com

found this pretty funny on the imdb "buzz" for the movie

THE BUZZ: Spotted: Kristen Bell trying the Amy Adams approach to mainstream success, embracing a Disney-fied take on romance in NYC. What will Upper East Siders have to say about this, as well as Bell's rabid cult audience? Her fortune is shining in the Eternal City, though it's unlikely she'll ever head back to Neptune, CA for the once-promising "Veronica Mars" movie. In fact, I feel like this fantasy comedy mirrors Ms. Bell's career, since she's found luck on TV with as a guest star on "Heroes" and the titular narrator of "Gossip Girl", but she has yet to find a big-screen vehicle for her considerable success. Something tells me she might have pitched a coin or two when the cameras weren't rolling."

SNL? This is a GOOD thing?


I'd rather see her in one great movie than host SNL a dozen times.

Who are the fans of Kristen Bell - just the Veronica Mars fans? I don't get her.

Yeah, I'm a fan of Bell but nothing about this movie looks remotely good.

Then you obviously haven't watched Veronica Mars. I would have posted the same thing a couple years ago before I bought the dvds and devoured them all in record time. She's also very entertaining on Craig Ferguson. Despite being very attractive she comes across as the girl-next-door and one-of-the-guys. Someone you could have a brew with.

She'll probably coast on that reputation until she dies, regardless of how shitty her movies end up being.

I don't get the love either. She's a terrible actress.

If you don't fall in love with her after watching this, you have a vast, empty wasteland of a soul.
