Marry Me (2022, D: Coiro) -- S: Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson








Kat Valdez (Lopez) is half of the sexiest celebrity power couple on Earth with hot new music supernova Bastian (Maluma, making his feature-film debut). As Kat and Bastian’s inescapable hit single, “Marry Me,” climbs the charts, they are about to be wed before an audience of their fans in a ceremony that will be streamed across multiple platforms.

Divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) has been dragged to the concert by his daughter Lou (Chloe Coleman, Big Little Lies) and his best friend (Sarah Silverman). When Kat learns, seconds before the ceremony, that Bastian has cheated on her with her assistant, her life turns left as she has a meltdown on stage, questioning love, truth and loyalty. As her gossamer world falls away, she locks eyes with a stranger—a face in the crowd.

If what you know lets you down, then perhaps what you don’t know is the answer, and so, in a moment of inspired insanity, Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive reaction evolves into an unexpected romance. But as forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: Can two people from such different worlds bridge the gulf between them and build a place where they both belong?

The film also stars John Bradley (Game of Thrones), Michelle Buteau (Michelle Buteau: Welcome to Buteaupia) and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Mulan).

Marry Me is directed by Kat Coiro (Dead to Me, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, upcoming She-Hulk) from a screenplay by John Rogers (The Librarians) and Tami Sagher (NBC’s 30 Rock) and Harper Dill (The Mick) based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby. The film is produced by Jennifer Lopez p.g.a. and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas p.g.a. (Hustlers, Maid in Manhattan) for Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions, by John Rogers for Kung Fu Monkey Productions and by Benny Medina (Hustlers, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). The film’s executive producers are Alex Brown, Willie Mercer, Pamela Thur and J.B. Roberts.




This trailer actually came out 4 weeks ago. Comes out February 11, 2022

It will be a day and date release on Peacock

I admit J-Lo movies are a guilty pleasure. I saw her last couple Hustlers and Second Act and liked both of them.

Yup. I wouldn't consider that a typical J.Lo movie… but she still was a producer on that b

This looks like shit.

The premise is beyond stupid. The movie looks horrible - and I really wonder why I even watched the trailer in the first place.

I have to disagree. I thought she was typical Jennifer Lopez "acting" in that movie. Nothing more, nothing less. I think she's only ever been great (or even good) in Out of Sight

I've seen this trailer a couple of times in the theater. It's not something I'll ever see, but remember when there was one of these romantic comedies released in theaters every month (if not every week)? I miss that. Forgive me for going all zyzzle, but those were better days.

Opens tomorrow and will also be on Peacock day and date. I know you all are dying to re-sign up for Peacock for this after you cancelled it after Halloween Kills.

^ That's about 50 points above what I was expecting, based on the trailer.

I kept Peacock for the Winter Olympics, so this is a bonus I guess before I quit.

I wish Owen Wilson and Wes Anderson would start collaborating as a writing team and with Owen playing more substantial roles again. I think it would do them both good.

I was just so happy to have him back in The French Dispatch.

Nothing. Randomly appended to an IRC handle since the original was taken and I stuck with it.

Sure you were. I’m reporting you just to be safe. You could be a spy or something cool.

Her and her cousin haven't been able to get on the same schedule.

Re: Marry Me (2022, D: Coiro) -- S: Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson

I just watched this on Peacock today. Surprisingly I found it enjoyable. Yeah its a ridiculous premise and predictable, but what made it work for me was the performances. Owen Wilson was quite charming and very likeable as the single father who's a math teacher. J-Lo was basically playing herself, but her character Kat was also very likeable. Some aspects of this movie reminded me of Notting Hill with the couple that has nothing in common. I would say this is a good movie for some of you to watch with your significant other as well.

It's a worthy 1-time watch if you enjoy the Rom Com genre. Nothing groundbreaking, but it kept me engaged.

There was so much promotion leading up to the release of this, and now a month later, it's like, oh yeah that was a movie.

This is true of about 90% of theatrical releases of the last 5 years.

I liked this movie. It's better than your average rom-com because of the original music.

Yeah I liked the new songs from Lopez in this. The Marry Me song was kind of cheesy, but there were some other good ones she sang.

Found it enjoyable, mostly for Owen Wilson and some decent music. For a rom com it isn’t awful.
