Kat Valdez and Bastian, two music superstars, are marrying in front of a worldwide audience of fans. But when Kat discovers that Bastian has been adulterous only moments before her wedding, she ends up marrying Charlie, a stranger from the crowd, instead. Based on a graphic book, Kat Coiro utilizes the dynamic of a globally famous pop singer marrying a middle-school math teacher to explore the strands of various lifestyles meeting and if a relationship like theirs can survive if they fall in love.
To say Lopez is merely portraying herself would be underestimating her ability to dominate the screen as Kat, whether she's addressing a crowded arena or resting at Charlie's in one of his old shirts. But the role fits Lopez just as well as Kat's bedazzled bodysuits onstage.
The screenplay is of typical rom-com, from the meet-cute to the fairy-tale connection to the heartbreaks and obstacles to the joyful conclusion, but it gets bonus points for what it doesn’t do. There are no ridiculous misunderstandings, fabricated scenarios, or cartoonishly evil characters.
What's Not There?
A film like Marry Me doesn't have to be concerned with realism. What is important is getting lost in the fantasy. However, the screenplay highlights the problems of balancing relationships, a profession, and a family, one hopes a sharper, more contemplative tone might have emerged. In the end, Marry Me cannot reconcile its contradictory aims, resulting in a charming but difficult-to-love film.
