Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Marry Me's silly storyline is heavy on the "something old" and "something borrowed," but the movie's well-matched leads make it easy to say "I do."

Romcom has so-so story, over-the-top product placement.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Marry Me is a music-infused romcom starring Jennifer Lopez (who also produced) as Kat Valdez, a pop star who impulsively marries a random guy (Owen Wilson) during a concert. Based on Bobby Crosby's graphic novel about a young, bubbly Britney Spears type, the story is transformed into a multicultural musical experience. Kat is engaged to Latino superstar Bastian (played by Latin music megastar Maluma), and the two often sing and speak Spanish. There are other non-lead characters of color, as well as LGBTQ+ and disability representation in supporting and background roles. Iffy content includes a few curses ("ass," "s--t") and a non-detailed reference to the fact that Kat's previous marriage ended when her husband sold a sex tape. Characters kiss, and after six weeks of marriage, it's implied that a couple consummates their marriage, but nothing happens on camera. What may take viewers aback is the movie's enthusiastic embrace of consumerism; the film often feels like an advertising platform. Kat is a material girl living in a material world, and the product placement is blatant. Brands are everywhere: fashion, beer, iPhones, even a Vitamix blender that practically becomes a character. Producer/distributor NBCUniversal's shows and networks are featured to the point of obnoxiousness. And with Lopez only being shown in a glamorous and flattering light (other than Kat's preposterous decision being roundly mocked), it's clear that viewers are being sold on the star herself.
