The Worst Film Ever
That was an excellent one.
Don't listen to the Hype. It's awful
Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.
Just married (2003) starring Ashton kutcher and Brittany Murphy gets very tiresome and the same old recycled jokes and boring gags are way overused. Ashton and Brittany had OK chemistry I suppose, nothing great. And the movie starts off pretty bad, using stupid lazy physical gags for jokes. These "jokes" are not funny or slightly amusing at all, and I just wanted them to end desperately. The acting is alright, not bad or great, just alright. The dialogue is kinda lazy and dull to be honest. The plot is stereotypical and predictable, which isn't always a bad thing, but it just didn't go over well with this film. Towards the end, it got a little better, but not much, some of the scenes had some sweet heartfelt moments, but the comedy didn't get any better. 4/10 for just married.
Just Married does little to surprise its audience. It caters to all the clichés of people marrying impulsively, as well as many old regurgitated classics of Hollywood's idea about romantic comedy. Arguably, it's still entertaining, because it's based on a tried and true recipe, but don't expect anything else. However, don't be shocked, the scenario calls, many times, on the "lie" trick to push the story from one drama to an other.Ashton Kutcher wears his over the top comedy style of That's 70s Show, but Brittany Murphy seems to want to stay away from her hysterical persona that are part of many of her romantic films. It makes the piece watchable.You want brain dead entertainment, you've never seen it, and you have a free night, this might be for you.
Once again, we see a married couple, that shouldn't be married at all. Just Married may have made over $100,000,000 in it's time in 2003. But now it's just a forgotten about, dull romantic-comedy starring Ashton Kutcher. I saw this movie, I remember, on VHS back in it's time of release in 2003. I thought it was funny, but would turn it off when the serious parts would come. Now I see, it's one of those movies, funnier when younger.There's not a load to say here, it's just a rather typical Comedy, that seems to have squeezed to many wanna be R-rated elements. They have to keep pushing back, and delaying the sex scene (which there isn't one) between Kutcher and Murphy. They seemed to have gotten carried away saying "Look we got this movie with two young actors, we could make them have....oh yeah....it's PG-13." Ashton Kutcher is Tom, a typical adult acting like an adolescent. Brittany Murphy is Sarah, a spoiled girl who is the youngest sibling in her family (often dubbed "Pee-Wee".) Opposites attract when they get engaged and their honeymoon goes awry in every possible way. Their car lands in a snowbank, they get kicked out of a five star hotel, and Sarah's friend Peter Prentiss shows up who wants to exact revenge on Tom.I bet everyone was expecting this to be a four star review seeing as we lost Brittany a few days ago. I was upset about her death, but just because of that I will not review this movie falsely based on depressing cases. Brittany is not a bad actress, I respect her for keeping herself out of the limelight, but if she makes a bad movie, Ill review it like that. I've heard numerous times her best film was the sleeper-hit Clueless from 1995. I am happy to say a review of that will becoming in the next few weeks.I'm glad to see her so lively in a movie, but truthfully, this movie I felt wasn't all about her. I seriously felt that Kutcher did a pretty well done performance and that Murphy tried to steal it in a way. Though Murphy had to be there, no one could have beaten her for the role as Sarah. Worth the $4.86 spent, but I think there was nothing wrong with the tape I had. Probably should have dug it up for free.Starring: Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy. Directed by: Shawn Levy.
Just Married is a pleasant and amusing comedy which relies mainly on Brittany Murphy's looks and Ashton Kutcher's goofy persona to make it work. The premise is a decent one, but it's kind of thin and all done before.Kutcher's a blue collar guy who works at a radio station and gives traffic reports during the graveyard shift. His favorite things in life are hamburgers and the Los Angeles Dodgers, though he sounds like he would have been at home in Ebbets Field back in the day. He keeps meeting Murphy first at an airport and then they have a series of coincidental meetings that might have dampened anyone's enthusiasm. But the old chemistry gets to working and they're in love.She's also rich and one of the things that father David Rasche owns is a piece of the Dodgers. But he's not crazy about his new prospective son-in-law and neither is her brother Thad Luckenbilll. They had in mind Christian Kane, a yuppie from the proper background who didn't move fast enough to close the deal with Murphy. Never mind that, he's not defeated yet.Kutcher and Murphy are wedded and then go on the honeymoon from hell starting at the Alps and ending in Venice. The two of them, especially with their different backgrounds take a lot of getting used to each other and forgiving past situations.For me it was hard to believe that the 20 something beautiful Brittany Murphy is so recently among the departed. She and Kutcher were an item during the making of Just Married so their scenes take on a special poignancy now. As for Ashton, he could be the son of Michael Kelso his good looking, but clueless character from That Seventies Show. He's goofy and funny in his way, but he shouldn't be one to carry an entire film.
