For a long time, Natalie, an Australian architect living in New York City, had always believed that what she had seen in rom-coms is all fantasy. But after thwarting a mugger at a subway station only to be knocked out while fleeing, Natalie wakes up and discovers that her life has suddenly become her worst nightmare—a romantic comedy—and she is the leading lady.
I like the "trapped inside a movie/tv show" concept. I've seen it done better elsewhere, but it's still pretty good here. And I very much enjoyed the way it plays out at the end. Actually I think the last time I was this warm on a romcom, it was _When We First Met_. Another Netflix original that I liked for virtually identical reasons... _Isn't it Romantic_ still isn't my sort of film. I just don't gravitate towards this genre. But It's **better**. Almost makes it feel like we're collectively going in the right direction as an industry. I'm sure we're not, but it's nice to live in that delusion. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
