Fountain's Run Dry

Kristen Bell rings flat as Beth, a girl-next-door-Guggenheim-museum-art-curator who fulfills a curse when she takes five coins from Rome’s fountain of love. During a 48-hour Italian visit for her sister’s sudden wedding, Beth meets the accident prone Nick (Josh Duhamel), who happens to also live in New York.

Will Arnett, Jon Heder, Dax Shepard, and Danny DeVito work to varying levels of success as the less-than-winning hopefuls at Beth’s threshold.
