1. Isn’t It Romantic
Release Date: February 13, 2019
Star Casts: Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, Adam DeVine, Priyanka Chopra
Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson
Who doesn’t like Rebel Wilson movies? Isn’t It Romantic is a totally funny movie, delightful and entertaining flick with such a strong message. “Self love comes first as a priority which is majorly missing these days!”
Her roles in Pitch Perfect, How to Be Single made me fall in love with her style of acting. In this romcom movie, she convincingly plays the character of a suppressed, introvert, though extremely talented and potent; still hides or steps back from achieving the heights she deserves.
