We’ll be the first to tell you our market editor Aja Mangum’s mac ’n’ cheese could be a dieter’s downfall. We even thought about not publishing it, so as not to tempt the virtuous.
But for years, Mangum’s family’s been whipping it up for naysayers — from college roommates to Thanksgiving dinner attendees — who’ve all promptly asked for seconds with their tails between their legs. Us included.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include 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, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
