Hackneyed star-brite Brittany Murphy-Ashton Kutcher rom-com.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Rubbery-faced Kutcher is a nice match for Murphy, and their chemistry keeps the movie afloat even when the gags stretch thin.

Just uninspired and mostly unfunny.

Plays like a dumbed-down version of a formula that's already had most of the smartness wrung out of it.

Immature and annoying; the jokes are tired.

Common Sense Media

The outside seat-fillers at the screening happily ate up every unsurprising, unfunny second, but that doesn't mean that you have to.

Full Review… | February 8, 2005

Besides the sub-par script the problem is that Kutcher and Murphy have zero chemistry.

Full Review… | January 4, 2004's the paper-thin characters and utterly predictable storyline that does the film in.

A pleasant, undemanding date movie.

Empire Magazine

Depois de bombardear o mundo com o péssimo Sonho de Campeão, o roteirista Sam Harper levou dez anos até conseguir ver este seu novo trabalho chegar às telonas. Ele deveria ter esperado mais vinte anos.

Cinema em Cena

Murphy has no comic timing and Kutcher overcompensates.

Full Review… | March 19, 2003

[Murphy] shouldn't have chosen Just Married, with its irritating script and banal premise, as her first romantic comedy to topline.

Move over Britney Spears and all other aspiring Britney wannabees. There's a new Britney in town and her name is Brittany Murphy. .

Sunday Times (Australia)

In watching the harried antics of a blustery mismatched married couple in the disjointed Just Married, is there anyway we can get our 95 minutes annulled from this marital mockery?

Full Review… | February 4, 2003

No es de esas películas que se vayan a recordar durante mucho tiempo, pero logra su propósito de entretener durante poco más de 90 minutos, a pesar de lo simplista que pudiera parecer su historia en una primera impresión.

Full Review… | January 29, 2003

... as the laughter suddenly stops... the guys in the audience will look at each other helplessly and think Did they switch out the last reel or did I walk into the wrong movie on my way back from the bathroom?

Full Review… | January 27, 2003

Well, here's the first official mainstream release of 2003, and if the quality of the first movie of the year is inversely proportionate to the overall quality of the year as a whole, we're off to a good start.

Mark Reviews Movies

There's nothing wrong with Just Married that a major script rewrite, several fresh plot twists and maybe a couple of tranquilizer darts couldn't fix.

Serviceable movie that doesn't play things too dumb and doesn't get too deep.

Real-life item Kutcher and Murphy may light up each other's world off-screen, but onscreen they have less chemistry than Kutcher and Sean Scott Williams showed in Dude, Where's My Car?.

Audience Reviews for Just Married

Haven't seen this in about ten years. Original rating was 4, have upgraded to 5. I think this really stands up as a rom com, and is still cute and funny. Brittany really was such a likeable actress.

Just Married is a decent comedy with a few good laughs, but it could have been done far better as well. The film had potential in doing something far better, and it does fall short. In the long run, this is a film that is worth seeing only once as the jokes become stale over multiple viewings. The idea behind the film was good, but the gags just didn't hold up. The cast do a decent job in their performances, but it simply doesn't make up for a great comedic experience. The film leaves room for improvement and it deliver some good laughs here and there but it could have been better. The film suffers from a lacking script that could have been rewritten a few times. Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy do what they can with the material and they pull off something entertaining. Just Married is fun, but like I said it could have been better due to its interesting ideas. This is a decent film to watch when you have nothing else better to do, and it makes for a mindless viewing experience that brings on a few good laughs, and effective moments. However this is a forgettable film that since its release, there has been far better films in this genre. Worth seeing, but there are too many underdeveloped ideas on-screen to really make it a hilarious film that warrants rewatching again and again. Expect something slightly humorous, but keep in mind that the film had plenty of wasted potential as well. Just Married is not the best rom com out there, but it certainly isn't the worst. Funny in some areas, and sketchy in others, this is a film that doesn't try too hard at being something great due to a script that reveals too many lacking, uninspired ideas.

Semi-fun movie that's really not that good. Filled with smelly cheese. Little Josh Baskin from "Big" plays Ashton Kutcher's best man, he still looks the same which is weird because he's supposed to look like Tom Hanks now.

The ending was sweet. Not that funny. But some scenes are kinda funny.
