I recently watched this movie. It was better than I expected, and was quite funny. Kristen Bell is adorable and Josh Duhamel is a blast and their chemistry together in the movie was entertaining. Beth (Kristen Bell) is a career woman with no time for a man in her life, as a busy art curator for a big museum in New York. She manages to sneak away for a brief moment to Rome however, for her sister's wedding. At this wedding, she meets the charming man, whom she isn't aware, is no doubt the one of her dreams. Duhamel plays the leading man, Nick.

Despite Nick's more than obvious immediate interest in Beth, she is oblivious to this and finds herself drunk and complaining that no-one will ever love her. She ends up at a majestic touristy water fountain in the streets of Rome, where she removes five coins from its watery temple. The second she does this, five guys immediately fall in love with her. Well four for sure, the other may have already been headed down that road on his own and besides - he threw a poker chip into the fountain rather than a coin, so does this really count? The fifth guy is of course, Nick. When Beth goes back home to New York, she is soon stalked by all five men, to include Nick, although he does so in a more subtle and somewhat charming fashion. The other four guys yearning for her attention are played by Danny DeVito, Dax Shepard, Jon Heder and Will Arnett.

DeVito plays a sweet famous sausage king; Shepard is a hilarious male model who is absolutely full of himself; Heder is a screw-ball magician who will bother you but make you grin; and Arnett plays a loony Italian artist. All of them grovel over her and naturally, she only has eyes for Nick, but of course can't let him onto that, because -well, the movie would be over, I guess.

Overall it was an enjoyable movie. It is one of those movies that you have to accept that it's not supposed to happen in real life. It's all about magic and falling in love with the right people. It does have funny enough parts to keep a guy entertained.
