Marry Me – Blu-ray/DVD Combo Edition

Every time I see her I wonder how does JLo do it all? I mean, she seems to be everywhere. All at once. The woman does television (World of Dance), music and film. Seemingly all at once. Her energy reserves seem limitless. This brings me to her latest film, Marry Me starring Jennifer Lopez alongside singer Maluma and actors/actresses Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman and John Bradley. It is a romantic comedy that asks the age-old question: what is love and where should we be looking for it?

There are plenty of moments when the film tries to be too cute or clever for its own good. Though it ends up easing into the middle ground somewhere in regards to romantic comedies. Not great, not horrible. A solid 6 out of 10 in other words.

All this leads to my advice to not overthink things here. Take this film for what it is. A simple, done before story that brings back Owen Wilson into the film world’s consciousness and another example of how likable JLo is. Director Kat Coiro, whose directorial experience has until this point been mostly in series having directed episodes of A Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Mozart in the Jungle, in no way attempts to make this a grounded film. There is a lack of reason throughout. Adult fantasy….and not in a dirty way.

Story goes a global superstar (played by Jennifer Lopez) is dating another singer (played by Maluma) and they are touring together. A plan is come up with that they would get married in front of the audience one night. A wrench is thrown into that when she finds out he has been cheating on her. Not to look like a fool, on the spur of the moment after seeing a sign in the audience, she proposes to a random guy. Everyone, including the guy (played by Owen Wilson), is thrown for a loop. To save face, even though the two do not know each other, she and he go forward with the plan to get married. You can see what is going to happen, right? Snap decision blooms into love between complete opposites.
