When Beth, an unlucky-in-love New York curator (Kristen Bell), takes a whirlwind trip to Rome for her sister's wedding, an unexpected crush takes her by surprise. Quickly let down, defiantly plucks coins from the Fontana de Amore, magically igniting the passions of some comically unsuitable suitors. As a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) becomes zealously smitten, Beth is skeptical that he's the real deal. Don't miss hilarious performances from an all-star cast you'll want to see again and again.

Critics Consensus: A pair of young, attractive leads can't overcome When in Rome's reliance on unfunny gags and threadbare rom-com clichs.

It lurches along, making Ms. Bell and Mr. Duhamel look duller than they need to.

A bunch of eager performers troll for laughs that never come.

Teen-appeal actors disappoint in stereotypical romcom.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this romantic comedy depicts enchanted suitors who -- under a magical spell -- basically stalk a woman in a bid for her love. Although there's no explicit sexuality, there are several passionate kisses, and in one scene newlyweds appear topless except for an apron, which hides sensitive spots. There are a few comedic pratfalls, but no serious violence, and a few product placements that are obvious but not over-the-top. As is the case with many romantic comedies, the protagonist is a stereotype of a workaholic woman in search of love.
