Isn't It Romantic Interview - Todd Strauss-Schulson

Isn’t It Romantic? is in theaters right now. The story follows a New York architect named Natalie (Rebel Wilson) who works hard to get noticed at her job. But more often than not gets relegated to the sidelines, sent out for coffee instead of presenting her big ideas for her firm’s clients. Life takes an odd turn when Natalie gets knocked unconscious and wakes up in her own romantic comedy. It’s both an unsettling nightmare and a hilarious dream.

Director Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, The Final Girls) has created an vibrant romantic comedy world that emulates all of the genre’s tropes. But it’s also a love letter to romcoms, packed with a big beating heart that it wears on its sleeve. In order to bring this cinematic, romantic world to life, the filmmaker immersed himself in dozens of romcoms in the span of two weeks. In fact, he watched every romantic comedy made between 1988 and 2007, and it shows.

We sat down for an interview with Todd Strauss-Schulson where he talked about the extensive preparation for the movie that no one asked him to do. Plus, he discussed attempting to decode the genome of romantic comedies, making a meta comedy without feeling like a spoof, and bringing to life a scene that he’s dreamed about since he was 10 years old.

The Package trailer

When I walked out of Universal’s teen comedy Blockers earlier this year, it seemed clear that actress Geraldine Viswanathan had a bright future. She was one of the funniest performers in a film full of funny people, so I’m glad to already see her popping up in another movie in 2018.

This one is called The Package, a Netflix teen comedy about a group of friends who go camping in the woods during spring break. But they soon realize that they need to save their idiot friend, who has accidentally cut off his own dick. Yep, all of a sudden that title makes sense. Watch The Package trailer below. Read More »
