    While there are a few laughs here and there, this is a pretty poor excuse of a movie, even for a rom-com. Of course, you have to somehow believe that picking coins out of a fountain in Italy will compel those who flipped the coins into the fountain hoping for love into loving the person doing the pilfering, I mean, picking of coins from the fountain.

    The script is pretty awful, giving very little for either Kristin Bell (Beth) or Josh Duhamel (Nick) to do to build any credible chemistry, and opting for lame scenes involving Beth fending off the litter of suitors (Jon Heder, Danny DeVito, Will Arnett, Dax Shepard, and a surprise assistant whose appearance did make me smile momentarily).

    I give it 1.75 stars, or a grade of C-.
