Our Score
In this yawnsome romantic comedy, newly dumped New York museum curator Beth (Kristen Bell) travels to Rome for her sister's wedding and takes some coins from a magical fountain. In consequence, she finds herself hotly pursued by the now-spellbound men who threw them in there: an artist with a foot fetish, a narcissistic male model, an annoying street magician and a sausage maker who is "big in bratwurst". True love seems to lie with relatively normal sports journalist Nick (Josh Duhamel) - or does it? When in Rome is watchable enough, albeit in a cheesily inept way, but is far less magical than its storyline. Even the title is a misnomer - the film is largely set in New York and, like guest stars Danny DeVito, Anjelica Huston and Don Johnson, the Eternal City only cameos.


A single-minded career woman attends her sister's wedding in Italy and, tired of being unlucky in love, impulsively snatches a handful of coins from the supposedly magical Fountain of Love. When she returns to New York, she suddenly finds herself pursued by a host of potential suitors, but each serves only to keep her from the man of her dreams. Romantic comedy, starring Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Anjelica Huston, Will Arnett, Jon Heder and Dax Shepard.
