Like the movie called Enchanted, New York City is so clean that it never smells like garbage and it never rains or snows. Comic shenanigans are always happening and at any moment, somebody is going to break out into song. People are either working as an architect or a magazine editor.
Rebel plays an Australian architect who lives in New York City and actually would scorn the world described above. She thinks that rom-coms are not very realistic and are complete fantasies.
She tries to stop a mugger on an NYC subway train and for her efforts, she ends up unconscious. She wakes up in the alternate romantic universe and can only get back to her home dimension by falling in love.
Who stars in this romantic comedy? Rebel Wilson plays the architect who is named Natalie. Liam Hemsworth (well-known for playing Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) plays a guy named Blake who is a client in the real world and a romantic interest in the alternate dimension.
Adam DeVine plays Josh who is Natalie’s best friend in this reality and another romantic interest in the other reality. Read more: Rebel Wilson Joins Cats Movie Musical
