Editors Note
Note Kristen Bell (HEROES, VERONICA MARS) stars in this comedy as a young woman with an enviable problem: she has multiple men after her heart! She takes a trip to Italy to escape New York City, and there she makes the questionable decision to take coins from a fountain of love. Soon, a number of men (played by Danny DeVito, Jon Heder, Dax Shepard, and Will Arnett) are a-wooing, and she doesn't know what to do. Making things even tougher is the presence of a journalist (Josh Duhamel), who seems to display a real affection for her.

Review Those who were regular viewers of Veronica Mars recognize there's an immense wellspring of charisma available to Kristen Bell that she has thus far been unable to tap in her post-Mars career. When in Rome, despite being a standard-order romantic comedy with little about it that could be considered fresh or original, finally provides Bell the opportunity to exude a little of that Veronica Mars charm on the big screen. She's paired with Josh Duhamel, who moderates the cockiness he displayed in Win a Date with Tad Hamilton and two Transformers movies to the point where he's appealing. The end result is an experience that, for all its predictability and strained attempts at screwball humor, is rarely unbearable and occasionally pleasant. Compared to January's other romantic comedy, Leap Year, this falls more solidly in the watchable zone. The reason is simple: Bell and Duhamel work as a pair while the duet of Amy Adams and Matthew Goode is as melodious as fingernails on a blackboard...The famous Trevi Fountain has been a centerpiece in two classic films: Three Coins in a Fountain and La Dolce Vita. In When in Rome, the "Fountain of Love" owes a debt of inspiration to the Trevi Fountain, although they are not one and the same. Still, watching Kristen Bell wading through the waters, it's hard not to think of Anita Ekberg. I'd like to believe the scene is an homage, but I can't be sure. This isn't the kind of movie where references to Fellini are going to be noticed. The use of locations in Rome adds a little flavor that is not replicated when the action returns to New York. It appears that director Mark Steven Johnson (whose last unfortunate outing was Ghost Rider), like many Americans, has less trouble romanticizing European cities than American ones...To the extent that a romantic comedy is intended to represent a fantasy about two attractive people finding the great unattainable - true love - with one another, When in Rome accomplishes the goal. It is neither deep nor intelligent, but it's not intended to be either. The saving grace of the otherwise generic product is that Bell's vivacity and Duhamel's rakish charm allow the viewer to root for them, even if sometimes that rooting goes so far as to wish the script would serve the couple better than it does.
