January 11, 2003
Just uninspired and mostly unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 11, 2003
Plays like a dumbed-down version of a formula that's already had most of the smartness wrung out of it.

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

Yes, it's as bad as it looks.
January 10, 2003
A veritable orgy of strained physical gags, inane vulgarity and poor comic timing.
January 10, 2003
This film ... thinks it's being cute when in fact it's being exceedingly irritating.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 10, 2003
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.

January 10, 2003
It takes a number of awkward running steps at the beginning and then founders irrevocably midway through.
January 10, 2003
The reality that Just Married reaffirms is not that of life, but of the glossy dumbness of what passes for comedy in big-studio circles.

January 10, 2003
Sitcomish, stereotypical and sporadically funny.

January 10, 2003
For a teen-geared trifle, this is feel-good fun with its heart in the right place.

January 10, 2003
In the end, a few genuinely funny moments aside, the script is simply too predictable and unvarying to earn the viewer's loyalty.

January 10, 2003
Like all too many marriages, this movie is more an endurance test than the test of true love it pretends to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 10, 2003
Ditches the expected route and comes out surprisingly original and endearing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 10, 2003
An ungainly and witless comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 10, 2003
The film's insistence that these two kids belong together for eternity should persuade only the credulous and unmarried. (I give them six months, personally.)
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 9, 2003
Of interest only as a product of such generic blandness as to be absolutely airtight: not a whiff of originality or real life has been allowed to spoil its plastic perfection.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
January 9, 2003
The director, Shawn Levy, and the screenwriter, Sam Harper, hardly overtax themselves, contriving to make these young lovers bump into as many walls and doors as possible to wring laughs from a feeble premise.

A little too lacking in sophistication to really stand out.

January 9, 2003
Even when this sitcom about honeymooners in hell was recycling lame jokes from National Lampoon's European Vacation, Kutcher retained a doofus dignity that made me laugh.

January 9, 2003
The gags fall into four categories: (a) stale, (b) dumb, (c) vaguely tasteless or (d) all of the above.

January 9, 2003
Just Married skates by, just barely, because of the sly, funny, sexy Murphy and the appealing Kutcher.

January 9, 2003
Long stretches without supporting characters while the newlyweds are on the road will probably make you as sick of Tom and Sarah as they are of each other by the time the honeymoon's over.
January 9, 2003
Collapses into the most generic sort of teen movie-ville, just at the moment it's convinced you that its lightly appealing stars are capable of better.

I laughed exactly once during the whole film.

January 3, 2003
The filmmakers themselves betray a lack of knowledge about the Old World, while unfailingly repeating physical hijinks one time too many.
January 3, 2003
Director Shawn Levy clearly wants to target teens and young adults, but the demographic engineering feels forced, turning potentially funny situations into lame physical bits.
