“Isn’t It Romantic” is a 2019 romantic comedy directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson with the script by Erin Cardillo, Dana Fox, and Katie Silberman. The movie stars Rebel Willson, Liam Hemsworth, Adam DeVine, and Priyanka Chopra. The film follows a woman who after experiencing an injury, feels that her world has changed, and she is now living in a stereotypical Romantic Comedy movie. The film both embraces and ridicules everything about rom-coms. The stars are talented enough to both deliver an homage to, and be satirical of, the genre. The film received mixed reviews and did well enough at the box office.
The Beer Lover’s Guide to the Movies pairs this with Black Raven Brewery’s Coco Jones Coconut Porter. This beer is their Tamerlane Brown Porter infused with freshly toasted coconuts. It has an ABV of 5.6%. This beer is a light brown in appearance with a big thick tan head. On the nose it conjures bread, chocolate, and coconut. It is a solid porter than has been enhanced by the addition of coconut. I chose this beer because like the film it plays with conventions but is also different enough to pull you in.
