    Isn't It Romantic

    ★★★

    Girl hates romantic comedies. Girl gets stuck in a romantic comedy. People who've seen romantic comedies snicker at seeing the genre gently roasted, while still getting all the satisfaction of watching a rom-com. That's pretty much it! This is a very silly and shallow film that knowingly engages in half the clichés it's mocking, but it's really not trying to be much more than those films.

There are better romances, better gay coming-of-age movies, better summer-fling stories, and movies where I don't get really really distracted by watching a dude gut a peach in his bed with his bare hands and then fuck it, making an immense mess for someone else to clean up. I will fight the world on this one.
