Storyline

An ambitious young New Yorker (Kristen Bell), disillusioned with romance, takes a whirlwind trip to Rome where she defiantly plucks magic coins from a "foolish" fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of an odd group of suitors: a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett) and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, how will she know if his love is the real thing?

Trivia

2010 Guide Analysis: "Having not had much success with his comic book adaptations "Ghost Rider" and "Daredevil", Mark Steven Johnson tries out romantic comedy with this loose remake of 1954's "Three Coins in the Fountain". The Rome-shot locations and a great supporting cast including Anjelica Huston, Danny DeVito, Will Arnett, Lee Pace and many more definitely offer at least something in the way of a nice distraction from very atypical Hollywood rom-com hijinks. The Bell/Duhamel pairing though, sorry I just don't buy it. Formula nonsense that should appeal to the usual market."
