The film “Isn’t it Romantic” makes fun of the genre of romantic comedies and does so in a successful and hilarious way. Although it won’t be winning any Oscars for brilliance or originality, it is still worth a trip to the movie theater. The film begins with a young Natalie (Rebel Wilson) being told b...

As a history and fantasy enthusiast, I wanted to enjoy “The Kid Who Would Be King.” Unfortunately, there was more to critique than to praise in not only the story, but the characterization, dialogue and much more.
