Critic Consensus: Just Married's plot is predictable, and the overdone pratfalls get tiresome.

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

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.

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

Full Review… | January 4, 2004

...it's the paper-thin characters and utterly predictable storyline that does the film in.

Reel Film Reviews

...nails the lowest possible IQ in the audience by being as insipid as it is boring.

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.
