Review: Marry Me
Superstar singer Kat Valdez (Jennifer Lopez) is set to marry her fiancé and fellow singer Bastian (Maluma) in front of 20 million people while singing their new hit song. Charlie (Owen Wilson) is a math teacher stuck in a rut because his daughter thinks her step dad is cooler. Tagging along to Kat's concert is going to change his life.
I'm not a rom com girl but something about the absurdity of this plot peaked my interest in the trailers. When it was announced that it would also stream on Peacock, I knew I'd watch. And I'm glad I did. While this full of the typical rom com clichés, I had fun.
Strangely enough, it was John Bradley, who plays Kat's manager Colin that had me the most interested. I just love to see Samwell Tarly thriving post Game of Thrones. He was such a good dude. I feel like most movies make managers out to be awful and he was trying to help Kat every step of the way and look out for her best interests. It was wholeome.
Lopez and Wilson had good chemistry together and they were perfect for these roles. It was easy to root for them. I also love how Charlie was like "I was just trying to help a woman in need!" when he full on made out with her on stage. Sure, my dude.
So is this for you? If you love rom coms, definitely. If you're on the fence, but have access to Peacock, then it's a perfectly fine watch. Happy Valentines day, all!
