When in Rome (2010) 
Watch Avatar
1/4 stars

I'm gonna attempt to talk about this movie without listing everything I hated about it. The reason being I would get carpal tunnel from typing millions of words.
The first thing that peeved me was the fact that 2/3 of the film takes place in New York. Silly me to expect a film entitled When in Rome to be mostly in Rome. You know how much of Roman Holiday took place in Rome? All of it!!!
The plot has more holes than all the Swiss cheese in Switzerland!!!
There were, I will admit, a couple of slightly funny scenes, mostly of Mr. Duhamel being a klutz.
I love Angelica Huston, but this was beneath her. I realize she was in Ice Pirates, but that movie was at least funny.
Another thing that annoyed me, the fountain is made up. There is no fontana d'amore. You can tell this cause there is neither bird poop nor graffiti on it. The fountain that appears behind the model thats the real fountain, the Trevi Fountain. You throw three coins in it: 1. that you will fall in love, 2. that it will be with an Italian, 3. that you will return to Rome. If you steal coins from the Trevi they throw your ass in jail, cause when they do clean out the coins the money goes to an orphanage.
There were many other things that irked me, I'm 1/4 Italian and I've visited Rome so some of the fake accents and fake traditions pissed me off. It really seemed as though the writer had never visited, but might have read a description of Three coins in the Fountain.
There is no reason to see this in the theater, there is no reason to rent it. If it happens to come on TV and you can't find the remote and you've no place to go, drink some alcohol, I'm sure a black-out would be more entertaining than this film. (I'm just kidding you might wanna shoot the TV though)

P.S. there is an older film from 1952 with the same title, but its a good movie.
