Starring: Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Bobby Moynihan, Will Arnett, Jon Heder, Dax Shepard, Danny DeVito and Anjelica Huston

Story: An ambitious young New Yorker, disillusioned with romance, takes a whirlwind trip to Rome where she defiantly plucks magic coins from a "foolish" fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of an odd group of suitors: a sausage magnate, a street magician, an adoring painter and a self-admiring model. But when a charming reporter pursues her with equal zest, how will she know if his love is the real thing? (Touchstone Pictures)

Rated: PG-13 for some suggestive content

Bottom Line: It has a few, intended, chuckle-worthy moments and even more moments of unintentional laughing because it’s so bad, so uninvolving, so lazy, so disjointed and such a colossal waste of time – time that might be better spent swallowing a handful of thumb tacks, perhaps. Do what the Romans (and the rest of the world, for that matter) are going to no doubt do and skip this unoriginal, short-sighted romantic-blahmedy.
