Marry Me: A Sweet, Predictable Rom-Com Lifted by J.Lo and Owen Wilson

“Marry me,” the 2022 romantic comedy featuring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson is a candy-floss predictable romance that will get you away from reality into the world of pop music. Although it does not add anything new to the genre, this film’s allure lies in its execution as well as the undeniable chemistry between its main characters.

The story revolves around Kat Valdez (Lopez), an international pop diva who is preparing to wed her boyfriend Bastian (Maluma) with whom she has been engaged. But moments before exchanging vows, Kat learns through social media that Bastian has been unfaithful to her. Therefore, hurt and disgraced, she does something on impulse—she calls up Charlie (Wilson); a random audience member she doesn’t know; right on the stage and proposes to marry him instead.

Charlie a math tutor who doesn’t care about being famous goes along with it. What happens next is a whirlwind romance that is followed by tabloids as Kat and Charlie deal with their different worlds. The two spend time together leading them both to challenge the preconceptions they had about each other.

Kat’s larger-than-life persona is contrasted against Charlie’s normalcy which keeps him grounded in reality. In her role as Kat, Lopez looks so beautiful just like how she appears in public during performances having managed to show off her vulnerability beneath all those glitters of being a pop star. This is enough depth to make us empathize with her character despite being famous person herself. On the other hand, Wilson plays Charlie perfectly with his signature ‘foolish’ expressions. Their conversations come out naturally therefore making one support their unlikely alliance throughout.

Although the plotline might be very predictable, Marry Me handles love relationships better than any other film can do so far this year due to its exploration of love and relationships. The film examines the idea of finding love in strange places, as well as the significance of staying true to one’s self amongst a society that thrives on pretence. It also addresses problems faced by celebrities and pressures of maintaining a perfect image which closely relate to J.Lo’s own Hollywood stories.

But, Marry Me is far from being perfect. Supporting characters such as Kat’s manager and Charlie’s daughter are mere caricatures. The music, though catchy, may appear more suitable for younger viewers. Moreover, the movie’s conclusion is saccharine-sweet.

Nevertheless, these shortcomings can be easily overshadowed given the feel-good aspect of this comedy. Humor is light-hearted and witty; there are genuine scenes where you would expect them most. At no point do you miss out on Lopez and Wilson either feeling flirtatious or bursting into laughter together like best friends do leaving you convinced they are truly their characters throughout the film’s runtime. They exchange words in an easy amusing way making it impossible not to watch it while some of their moments touch our hearts.

Ultimately, Marry Me is a perfectly determined romantic comedy very soft in nature that doesn’t want to be anything else besides a simple rom-com at all cost but it does not pretend to reinvent anything about romantic movies unlike most others but still keeps its promise of being heartwarming entertainment for lovers around the world who enjoy this sort of thing. For those looking for something light with plenty of romance and humor thrown in “Marry Me” would make an excellent choice because it will leave you smiling even when credits are rolling down your screen once again showing how much this kind of movies have left positive impacts on most people globally over time
