When in Rome: Late Review

Synopsis:
Beth is a hard working career woman whose last relationship says that she puts her work above him so he left her. When he tells her he found another career woman and is willing to stick it out with her and is engaged to her. Beth feels that there is no one for her. And when she goes to Rome to attend her sister's impromptu wedding and after meeting the best man, Nick she's attracted to him but after seeing him with another woman, she gets drunk and goes into the famed Fountain of Love and takes some coins thrown by people looking for love. When she goes back to New York four men start coming onto her. And Nick keeps calling her asking her out. She later learns that what she did--is a no no. It seems legend says that if you take a coins out of the fountain the person who threw it will fall in love with who took the coin. So she has to find a way to break the curse. And she wonders if Nick whom she likes is with her cause he wants to or is he under the spell. (source)

Have you ever thrown coins to the wishing well? Have ever thought your wish will be granted? Do you believe in magic? The movie When in Rome, tells that the only magic we could ever believe is the magic of love. 

Lesson Learned:

  • Because of the pain we experienced from the past, we're now afraid to fall in love again. But love is about taking risk. We couldn't know unless we try. 
  • Love is always a decision to make. 
  • We don't need to rush love, it will happen. In the right time, in the right place, and with the right person.
  • Family occasions should be prioritize over work. 
 And my favorite quotation from the movie is:
The whole point of love is, to put someone else's needs above your own. -Al, one of Beth's suitor

I like this movie too! Agree with the lessons of this movie! Hurt comes in loving a person fully. But if one didn't work out, one shouldn't lose trust in the power of falling in love a gain! And YES, Family first before work. :)
