What do you get when you mix Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson together in a romantic comedy? You get the movie “Marry Me.” A contemporary love story about celebrity, marriage, and social media. It's the tale of two people from different backgrounds who are both looking for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers. It is a light-hearted film that is sure to make you laugh and smile.
Lopez plays musical superstar Kat Valdez, while Wilson portrays Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher. The pair are total strangers who volunteer to marry and then get to know each other.
With hot new music phenomenon Bastian (Maluma, making his feature-film debut) as her half, the sexiest celebrity power couple on Earth is Kat (Lopez) and Vincent (Valdez). They are about to be married before a crowd of their followers in a ceremony that will be streamed across multiple platforms, shortly before they release
Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) is a divorced high-school math teacher who has been dragged to the concert by his daughter Lou (Chloe Coleman, Big Little Lies) and his best friend (Sarah Silverman). When Kat learns, just before the ceremony, that Bastian has cheated on her with her assistant, her life crumbles around her.
If what you know fails you, perhaps what you don't know is the solution, and so, in a fit of inspired madness, Kat decides to marry Charlie. What began as an impulsive decision blossoms into an unexpected love affair. But as opposing forces strive to tear them apart, the worldwide mystery persists: Is it possible for two individuals from two different worlds to fall in love?
Does art imitate life? Jennifer Lopez has played lots of characters over the years but this one seems very close to her own life. You can't help but think about her split from Alex Rodriguez and the cheating rumors to the reacquainted relationship with Ben Affleck. I am routing for Ben much like I did Charlie in the movie.
