Reviews of the movie: Just Married
Pretty Brittany Murphy and prettier Ashton Kutcher make a surprisingly enjoyable comic team in Just Married, a romantic comedy about a horrible honeymoon. After a whirlwind romance, radio traffic announcer Kutcher and rich girl Murphy get married over the objections of her upper-crust family. Their love can overcome snobbery--but as the cuddly pair start to drive each other nuts over mishaps traveling through Europe, it starts to look like their love can't overcome intimacy. Just Married has a sprightly script that keeps one foot on the ground (unlike some recent romantic comedies that seem to have no connection to reality) and one eye on the small ways in which lovers can get on each other's nerves. Kutcher (Dude, Where's My Car?) and Brittany Murphy (Clueless, 8 Mile) have a sweet yet volatile chemistry that keeps the antics lively.
Speak Now, Or Forever Hold Your Peace.
Young couple Tom (Ashton Kutcher) and Sarah (Brittany Murphy ) meet cute at the beach and, on an emotional high, get married soon after. The main premise of the movie is that their honeymoon turns out to be a disaster...
There are a number of awkward and boring moments in the first half, but it gets a little better as it goes on. When all was said and done, however, I didn't laugh a whole lot. The movie manages to coast for much of its running time based on the very likeable young actors in the leads. It's Kutcher who manages to get most of the laughs; he can get laughs with just a facial expression!
I don't think it's really that good but I also find it a hard picture to hate. At the very least, those who are so inclined can enjoy that beautiful European scenery.
I feel bad for actress Veronica Cartwright. Appearing uncredited (as Sarah's mother), she has to utter the movie's stupidest line. Are there any people in real life with the same nickname as her character?
Mainly noteworthy for the fact that Kutcher and Murphy were a couple in real life as well ...for a bit. Now of course, his star's shot into the stratosphere because he's dating Demi Moore.
Anyway, I gave this one five out of ten. I heard that critics everywhere tore this movie to pieces, but come on, give me a break, what were they expecting? "Roman Holiday Part Two?"
