Just Married

Dan Goldwasser Movie Reviews

It’s the first new wide-release of the year. It’s also an incredibly silly, contrived, and utterly predictable film. But, it also made me laugh. Just Married isn’t really even worth writing much about, so I’m not gonna spend too much time on it. What I will say, though, is that it has plenty of low-brow humor, intermixed with some poignant moments. (Heck, even the squishy sentimental “morality tale” at the end was something most people could lock-on-to and get mushy over.) By far, though, the funniest thing was the car. That’s all I can say about it. Well, that and the dog. (But when is a dog not funny?). Oh. And Brittany Murphy needs to go back to the factory, if she is gonna be playing the same cheery, bubbly, and overall spoiled rich brat that she always seems to play. (She looks like a cross between Alicia Silverstone and Reese Witherspoon, but without the appeal.) I should have stayed at home and watched “The Bachelorette“.
