When in Rome is a romantic comedy movie that was released in 2010. It is directed by Mark Steven Johnson and stars Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, and Anjelica Huston in lead roles. The film is set in Rome, Italy, and revolves around a young curator of an art museum, Beth (Kristen Bell), who falls in love with a successful businessman, Nick (Josh Duhamel), after she picks up coins from a magical fountain in Rome.

The movie starts with Beth attending her younger sister's wedding, where she is constantly reminded about her loveless life. She is fed up with finding the right man for her and has given up on love. While in Rome working on a new exhibition, she takes a visit to a famous fountain where she finds several coins thrown by lovers wishing for eternal love.

Beth impulsively picks up five coins and soon discovers that the person who threw those coins in the fountain end up falling in love with the one who collects the coin. The situation turns into a comedy of errors when the people from whom she collected the coins start following Beth everywhere in Rome. They all believe that they are in love with her, including a street magician, a model, and an artist.

The only one who doesn’t seem to care about Beth is Nick, a successful businessman. Despite their initial cold encounter, Beth slowly starts to develop feelings for Nick. However, the moment she offers her coin to Nick, she realizes that she might never find true love with Nick because of the curse that the fountain carries.

As the movie progresses, Beth juggles between her work, her personal life, and the curse that the fountain has put on her. She finally realizes that true love might not be easy, but it is worth fighting for.

The chemistry between Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel is the highlight of the movie. They complement each other very well in their roles, making the audience fall in love with their characters. Anjelica Huston plays the role of Beth’s boss, Guggenheim who is obsessed with the idea of creating a perfect exhibition, and her character adds to the movie’s value with her quirky performance.
