IMDb Plot Synopsis: Beth is a young, ambitious New Yorker who is completely unlucky in love. However, on a whirlwind trip to Rome, she impulsively steals some coins from a reputed fountain of love, and is then aggressively pursued by a band of suitors.

A Quick Review: This has to be one of the cheesiest films I’ve seen in a long time. It has all the rom-com cliches wrapped up in a big shiny bow. And yet they are cliches for a reason so I went along for the ride and tried to see past some of the cringe-worthy performances and plot points. And I suppose it was enjoyable enough to watch for a Sunday night movie. It had some funny slap-stick moments but it was just so beyond predictable with no twists in sight that it got a little tedious by the end. But thankfully it was only a tight 90 minutes and the beautiful shots of Rome and lovely soundtrack made it all a little better...

Score: 6/10
