The film has the age group 16-24 written all over it. But come on, folks, even good intentions to capture a certain market can't make up for a downright silly movie.

It truly is a honeymoon in hell, but it's grating and annoying rather than funny.

Teenagers will enjoy this sort of rubbish; I did not.

There's something sweetly endearing about this mildly funny little newlywed endeavor.

Brittany Murphy is a very complex woman. Her eyes say "take me," her roots say "color me," and her random facial spasms say "treat me for Parkinson's."

For a post-holiday season B-movie, Just Married could have been worse

Has about as much flow, timing, and inspirational humor as statistical research.

Resorts to pratfalls and other familiar bits that, while occasionally funny, somehow make it all just a little too formulaic to really lock on.

A high cuteness quotient does not a movie make.

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

It is primarily due to the chemistry of Kutcher and Murphy that we worry whether the marriage survives or not.

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.

Murphy and Kutcher ... have earned their big cue-the-credits kiss, even if the movie has not.

Like Tom and Sarah's doomed honeymoon, Just Married is a hopeless failure from its first few frames.

A veritable orgy of strained physical gags, inane vulgarity and poor comic timing.

This film ... thinks it's being cute when in fact it's being exceedingly irritating.

Brittany Murphy and Ashton (Dude, Where's My Car?) Kutcher plunge themselves into this potentially sludgy material ... with such game energy and velocity, they actually whip it into something frothy and fun.
