There is a magical alternative reality, a place where the most romantic comedies are located, where the apartments are always huge and the City of New York never smells like garbage. It is a mystical land full of comedic misunderstandings and improvised musical numbers, where everyone works as editors of magazines or architects.
The next Isnt it Romantic comedy is a return to that world, although with a twist: Rebel Wilson plays Natalie, a cynical architect who actively despises comedians and has considered them a fantasy.
