Tom Leezak (Ashton Kutcher) is a regular guy who likes sports and beer and tries to make ends meet working as a nighttime radio traffic reporter. Sarah McNerney (Brittany Murphy) is a beautiful young woman from a wealthy and privileged family who is trying to make a name for herself as a writer. Tom and Sarah have seemingly nothing in

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

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

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.

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.

Murphy has no comic timing and Kutcher overcompensates.

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

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?

February 4, 2003 Full Review

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.

... 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?

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.

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.

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.
