Rebel Wilson, known for her roles as Fat Amy in Pitch Pefect (2012), Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) and Pitch Perfect 3 (2017), is coming back on the big screen with the movie “Isn’t It Romantic”. She will be playing the role of Natalie, the girl who is known for hating RomCom series and films because of her mother’s influence. What is to be expected in this movie and in Wilson’s future projects?
“Isn’t It Romantic” is Rebel Wilson’s comeback movie since appearing on the last installment of the “Pitch Perfect” trilogy which was released last year. The movie is about a girl named Natalie, who has been addicted to RomComs when she was a child, but grew up to hate it because of her mother telling her that she is “no Julia Roberts”. Since then, Natalie never appreciated RomCom. Rebel Wilson will even tell her friends about how RomComs are literally lies because of its unrealistic view of love.
Natalie’s character is someone who is having a hard time finding someone to love. That’s why when someone called her on her way to her work one day, she thought that she’ll try to at least be hopeful about romance.
However, the guy turns out to be a mugger as he tried to get Natalie’s belongings in the NYC subway system. Natalie successfully defended herself from the mugger, but when she’s trying to escape, she hasn’t noticed the post behind her and bumped herself on it, knocking herself out.

When Natalie finally woke up, she found herself in a hospital with a good looking nurse attending to her. The whole New York City seems like it is applied with a beauty filter. She found herself with a better apartment, better things, and a gay sidekick. To put herself out of that place, she needs to make someone fall in love with her. Follow Rebel Wilson on Instagram
