      My Favourite Comedy!

      This is one of my favourite movies of all time. I wouldn''t recommend for under 13''s as there is no nudity but there are frequent sexual references and situations, some graphic, and some raunchy, including an attempted sexual encounter in an airplane bathroom and overheard sex in the next room. The same material in a drama would have earned an R rating. The characters drink a lot, often to help themselves feel better when they are upset. A character refers to regrets about having sex with someone after drinking too much champagne. There is a lot of strong language (and much attempted humour from the name "Pussy"). About The Story: Sarah (Brittany Murphy), the daughter of a wealthy family, wants a relationship where she won''t always know what is going to happen next. Tom (Ashton Kutcher) is a community college graduate who wants to be a sportscaster but is currently the substitute late-night traffic announcer on a radio station. They met when he beans her with a football pass as she is walking her dog on the beach. A month later, they are living together, and nine months after that, they get married. Their honeymoon is one disaster after another and they argue about sex, money, and the in-laws. They hurt each other''s feelings and they each worry about a past lie. Sarah never told Tom that she had sex with the guy her parents wanted her to marry. And Tom never told Sarah that he was indirectly responsible for her dog''s death. Tom and Sarah have to learn to trust each other and to trust themselves.

      So funny

      This film stars Brittany Murphy as Sarah and Ashton Kutcher as Tom. Sarah and Tom meet on the beach and very quickly decide to get married even though they are from totally different backgrounds. Sarah's family is very wealthy and Tom works the graveyard shift at a radio station but they are totally in love. The film starts when we see them arriving back from their honeymoon and they seem to totally hate each other and then the film shows what has happened to get them to this stage. The honeymoon starts off on the wrong foot when they wake up late and collide so Sarah has a bandage on her nose. Things get worse when they arrive at their hotel and manage to blow the electrics and so are kicked out into the snow and can't find anywhere else to stay. When the eventually arrive in Venice things get no better and Sarah and Tom both have different things they want to do and so end up spending time apart. The honeymoon couldn't get any worse.

      This film is so funny. Both Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy are great in their roles and are very believable. They make the comedy moments great. There is always some disaster happening in this film which makes things completely imperfect for them and this film just makes me feel so sorry for them. It is a very fast paced film and is never boring. It is an original story which is great to watch but you don't need to concentrate too hard when watching it so it is nice and relaxing and helps you to chill out.

      It is a romantic comedy but I think it will appeal to both men and women because it is so funny and really makes me laugh how they try to take revenge on each other but no matter how much they torture each other you can still really see how much they love each other.

      I would definately recommend this film.

      After the tragic death of Brittany Murphy- who used to be among my favourite actresses- I felt like watching this film again just to witness her amazing acting capabilities. The film is extremely comical and endearing, and I think that this is mainly due to the very powerful chemistry that was depicted between Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy. This definitely is a feel-good movie, and also one that constantly got me laughing.


      Tom is an average guy who works the midnight shift at a radio station. Sarah is the daughter of an extremely wealthy businessman. Despite their radically different backgrounds, Tom and Sarah meet by chance and fall in love. They are the perfect epitome of the ideal couple...until the day that they decide to tie the knot. The weeding night was a near catastrophe, and the honeymoon from hell wasn't exactly what they'd bargained for...


      As mentioned above, there was a strong chemistry between Murphy and Kutcher and that might be due to the fact that the two of them used to go out together in real life- and broke up before the movie. But their gestures and body languages did suggest a familiarity towards each other and this enhanced the endearing element of the film. The acting was really priceless and I cannot recall seeing their performances lacking at any point.


      Another thing that I liked about the film was the way in which it was kept pretty simple and straight to the point. There was no extreme climax, nor any powerful emotional upheavals. However, it still managed to capture the romantic side of the plot, and managed to turn everything into a very entertaining story. I am not someone who laughs easily at jokes or comic scenes from film, but this one ended up being so, so funny that I nearly ended up on the floor, having laughed so much!

      General information

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      The story
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      The story is about Sarah McNerney and Tom Leezak. Sarah comes from a wealthy family, while Tom has a job at minimum wage, but when the two meet the money means nothing, because they fall totally in love. The family of Sarah is not really happy with it, but what can you do about it? Soon after a few months Tom and Sarah decide to get married and go on a nice honeymoon in Europe! It almost couldn't get any better and everything seems to go perfectly. Besides the honeymoon itself though and soon both are already bickering back in America. This begins with the film with the moment they arrive back in America and the big question is of course what happened?

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Acting Performance
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      The performances are good in this movie. You have two actors who are already known in the acting. You have the late Brittany Murphy in the role of Sarah McNerney. Sarah comes from a wealthy family, but is pretty loose in her behavior and she doesn't really care that Peter doesn't come from a rich family. Her family thinks otherwise and let prefers that she marries with Peter, who comes from a better family. Peter is not exactly favorite with Tom and is jealous of him and unfortunately Peter is not someone who stays away. Brittany plays Sarah well, she is believable in her role and I have nothing really to criticize. Ashton Kutcher plays Tom, and clearly shows that he is quite capable of player in a comedy movie. He plays very well the stupid guy with his stupid actions, as he tries to put American plug into a French outlet, causing short circuit. His timing is good and is believable in his role.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Extras
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      There are several extras on the DVD including commentary from the director and Brittany Murphy and Ashton Kutcher. It's a funny commentary to listen with some really funny moments and there is sufficient information about how the film was made and what problems they had during filming. In addition there are four deleted scenes on the DVD with the possibility to listen to the comments of the director. Also there are a few other little extras, which were not really worth it.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      My opinion
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      Just Married is a fun easy to watch comedy, who almostly succeed due it's simple and silly jokes. Of course they make fun of Europe where they go for their honeymoon. For example the Americans are used to their big cars and here in Europe they get a little smart car where Tom hardly fits in. It does feel often predictable, but I really enjoyed the actors in this movie. I thought that Brittany and Ashton had a real connection together and are quiet funny together. They really make the film work and worth it to watch.

        Disadvantages

        excellent romcom

        Just Married was released in the UK in 2003 and was directed by Shawn Levy.

        ** The Plot **

        The movie is about a young couple, Tom and Sarah, who get married, even though Sarah's family and friends are totally against the idea. Things just don't seem to go to plan and when Sarah's family and ex, Peter, get involved the problems go from bad to worse. Can the couple stay together or will the marriage be over before the honeymoon?

        ** The Cast **

        Ashton Kutcher plays Tom
        Brittany Murphy plays Sarah
        Christian Kane plays Peter

        For a full list of cast you visit www.imdb.com.

        ** My Opinion **

        I really liked this film and it helps to remind people how great an actress and comedian Brittany Murphy was. She and Kutcher have a great on screen chemistry and together they make an extremely humorous pair.

        The story is funny and eventful, keeping the viewer constantly interested, I didn't find the film slow in any parts and felt it had a good flow.

        I like that this film covers more than one genre, for example there is loads of humour but its also romantic and the balance is good.

        I think this is definitely one of the best film Kutcher and Murphy have done and I think it appeals to a wide audience. The humour seems to come so naturally to both stars, its very enjoyable to watch.

        I like the ending, don't worry I wont give it away, but its nice to have a twist and I think that this film is full of surprises.

        Overall I would give this film 5/5

          Welcome to the honeymoon from hell

          Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy are just utterly delightful in this romantic comedy! While both of them deliver great performances, I think that Kutcher outshines his co-star by really depicting his talent as a comedian. I just loved him in this movie- he was so, so suited for this particular role! In addition, Just Married also has a slight brush of airiness to it, and even in the more serious scenes, there is that particular feel-good aspect which certainly keeps things light in the audience's mind. The plot flew extremely well and it was kept fun and preppy at all times: This is certainly one movie which had me laughing nearly without stop, from the very start to the end.


          The story is about an endearing, very-much-in-love couple. Even if Tom is just your average guy and Sarah is the daughter of an over-rich businessman, the two of them seem to be perfectly suited for each other. Everything was going perfectly fine between Sarah and Tom until the day they decide to get married. When they vacation out to the honeymoon of their dreams, this is where the real trouble begins. Tom and Sarah cannot bring themselves to agree on a single thing and what was supposed to be the perfect honeymoon is slowly turning out to be the marriage from hell...


          It is quite apparent that the plot is quite simple and straight-to-the point. In fact, the film does not really linger around before diving straight into the plot. It focuses rather on their different backgrounds before delving straight into the honeymoons. What I personally liked about that was the fact that the producers used heavy doses of genuine humor in order to depict the differences that might arise from a couple who come of different backgrounds: There was there typical awkward moment at meeting the parents of the bride, as well as trying to fit in with a totally different family. It is true to say that these are real-life happenings but I was personally fed up in seeing the same heavy, depressing scenario all over again in other films. That is why I was quite simply overjoyed at witnessing such scenes in an extremely highly comical manner in Just Married.


          The honeymoon was also extremely humoristic with a lot of laughs guaranteed! Once again, despite the seriousness of the situation, both the cast and the producers managed to keep a light and fun atmosphere all throughout. This was also enhanced by the way that the film did not focus merely on one actor: Both the perspectives of Tom and Sarah were depicted, enabling the audience to remain quite open minded during the fights and not solely blame one party. I think that the way that marriage was shown as being more than just a fairytale was quite amazing. There are in fact, very few films that I have scenes where the producers manage to pass morals off to the audience and make them laugh at the same time!
          Like I mentioned above, Kutcher was more than amazing in his role. His facial expressions were exactly what the audience might expect of his character of Tom Leezak in the film. In addition, both Kutcher and Murphy did their best to enact some on-screen chemistry and I think that this largely contributed towards adding a romantic air to the film as a whole. In fact, had there not been any on-screen chemistry, I don't think that there would have been any form of romantic thematic features in the movie because it seemed to be more focused on laughs rather than romance!


          The main cast includes
          * Ashton Kutcher
          * Brittany Murphy
          * Christian Kane
          * David Moscow
          * Monet Mazur



          DVD Bonus features:
          * Commentaries
          * Featurettes
          * Making of

          Disappointingly, there was nothing even remotely exceptional about the extras.

          Overall, I would say that this is quite a comical and romantic film for all audiences alike! Highly recommended!


          Thanks for reading!

            Not the best out there but it was still good

            Just Married is a romantic comedy released in 2003 by 20th Century Fox. The film is rated 12 due to some mild language and moderate references to sex. Just Married was #1 at the box office from it's first week and stayed there for a total of 4 weeks. Although the film did really well at the box office, it generally received bad reviews.

            Sarah and Tom are in love and decide to get married even though Sarah's rich and stuck up family don't agree with their decision. The pair have a wonderful wedding and get ready to have a fantastic honeymoon in Europe. What is supposed to be a happy time soon turns into disaster and the couple into their fair share of problems.

            Main Characters
            Tom - Ashton Kutcher
            Sarah - Brittany Murphy

            Just Married is more of a slapstick comedy rather than the majority of rom-coms that are around and seem to be more about the romance with a few added giggles. This one had me laughing the whole way through. Tom and Sarah are believable as newlyweds because of their bickering.

            Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy were the perfect choices for the lead roles and they both did a fantastic job.

            Ashton Kutcher has tried to play more serious roles but I think he was made for comedies. He's a very playful guy and after seeing Punk'd, I can see why he plays this role so well. Brittany Murphy plays Sarah really well and if Tom was my husband, I'd be more than annoyed too.

            This film certainly isn't for everyone and the plot is quite unbelievable. Even though Just Married is really predictable, I really liked it. I think you need to have a certain kind of humour for this one though. The dialogue certainly isn't a masterpiece and the film didn't win any awards but it's great if you're after something silly and light hearted.

            I really enjoyed watching Tom and Sarah go though a hard time, as mean as that sounds and it was interesting to see how much the couple could go through before they both broke down. I ended up feeling quite sorry for them both because no one should have to start a marriage this way.

            Just Married is a silly rom-com but it's well worth a watch.

              Good comedy love movie

              This film is the story of a couple who meet, have a whirl wind romance and get married. They then go on their honeymoon in Europe and by the end of it they return home wanting to kill each other. The film starts as they get off the plane and you are immediately drawn into the relationship and appreciate how much they hate each other.

              This is a comedy film that is based around a relationship which goes slightly off the rails when they get married.

              It is the first film I have seen Ashton Kutcher in and he puts in a strong performance as the sarcastic husband. Brittany Murphy plays the wife and takes to the role as a kooky rich kid as if she was born to do it.

              If anything is wrong with this movie i would say that the story line is a bit weak but the actors perform well and it has some very funny moments. It is just a good bit of fun.

              When my girlfriend suggested we watch it and told me the title I wasn't sure if I would like it but I was pleasantly surprised. It has all the ingredients required for a good comedy love movie.

              An enjoyable film and watching is not time wasted

              So, continuing my theme of romantic comedies, I now move onto the slightly sillier romantic comedy of Just Married...to redeem myself, I am just having a bit of a no-thinking-required movie phase, and I am also revisiting Lord of the Rings (extended editions no less) so please don't judge me based on my recent review material!

              As with my other recent romantic comedy review, I'm going to judge this based on what it is, not where it comes in the great world of cinema...

              Just Married was released on DVD in 2003 and stars the rather pretty pairing of Brittany Murphy as Sarah and Ashton Kutcher as Tom. They play a young couple who fall completely in love, but then when they go on honeymoon things start to go a bit wrong...

              Unexpectedly, the film opens with what we expect to be the end of the story, with the pair arriving back in the USA after their honeymoon, which has clearly not gone well. This surprised me, and I thought it bode well, as normally these kind of films have a standard format where they follow the story chronologically; however, this different opening made me think this film might break the mould a little.

              The couple are behaving very childishly towards each other at the airport, and this becomes an important part of the story. Everyone has said they are too young to get married, and here they are behaving like kids. They go their separate ways, and then Tom tells the story of how they met, married and what went wrong.

              The two lead actors are not bad at all in this. They do seem very young and a bit gawky at times but that is part of the characters so it is not a fault of the actors. On the whole the chemistry between Murphy and Kutcher is good, although there were a few moments when I was not convinced. The roles suit the actors looks and acting strengths, with Murphy playing a rich girl looking for love, and Kutcher playing a radio announcer with a silly side.

              The supporting characters, on the whole, fit in well to the film and were played well by the actors. The only character that I didn't feel was right was Tom's best friend Kyle (David Moscow), who was almost entirely unsympathetic to Tom's disastrous honeymoon, although he did come through for his friend in the end. But then maybe a film like this always needs the frat boy style best mate to add comic relief and balance out the romance.

              I expected this to be more of a slapstick comedy than a standard romcom, but in actual fact it is quite gentle. There are several laugh-out-loud moments, and some visual gags, but a lot of it fits nicely into the romcom genre rather than out and out comedy.

              Interestingly, there is a lesson to be learned from this film. Everything went wrong on Tom and Sarah's honeymoon, and they came home thinking they never wanted to see each other again. But two weeks spent on honeymoon, where life seemed to conspire against them, doesn't really reflect a relationship, so should you really give up on it that easily?

              I really enjoyed this film, and felt it was the right addition to my easygoing-movies THING that I seem to be going through. It was straightforward, delivered more or less what I expected, and didn't really require too much attention. I didn't, however, think it broke the mould, as I thought it might from the unexpected opening. But then when I put this in the DVD player, I wasn't exactly looking for a mould-breaking film, so I wasn't disappointed in that respect.

              I bought this recently from Amazon for £4.98, which is a good price but I wouldn't advise paying any more for it.

                Disadvantages

                An ok comedy but don't watch the previews first as it is all the funny moments

                Just Married is romantic comedy with two of the Hollywood stars known more for being celebrities than for their acting abilities.
                The film sees Tom (Ashton Kutcher), a traffic reporter who meets and falls in love with Sarah (Brittany Murphy), a writer who is from a very good upbringing with her wealthy family. Tom and Sarah get married (much to the disgust of Sarah's parents and ex-boyfriend) and the film is a journey of their honeymoon ride through France and Italy. Everything that can go wrong is going wrong and what should be the perfect honeymoon and start to married life is turning into absolute hell.

                I had gone into this film on the back of watching previews of it and unfortunately if I had just seen these I would have seen all of the comedy moments from the film worth seeing. The movie has a basic plot with a script that felt flimsy to me. I felt the film disappointed in the amount and quality of the laughs as it had a real opportunity to be hilarious but only delivered funny. The on-screen chemistry between Kutcher and Murphy is good and this does add something to the movie that many romantic comedies to lack but I just felt let down as the preview gave me such high hopes.

                If you like romantic comedies then this will give you some laughs but don't watch the previews as you will feel robbed when you see these moments in the movie and realise they are the funniest parts of all.

                Disadvantages

                A good film that I very much enjoyed and would recommend.

                Just Married really is a very good film and I was veyr much supprised when I was watching it. I thought it was very funny although I did think that overall it could have been produced better. The film is as I said a comedy and whislt I found it to be very funny indeed at some times it wasn't particulalry consistant. I loved the fact that Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy were the stars of the film because I am big fans of them. They really were excellent in the film and I thought that it was veyr much a commendable effort. I did enjoy the film and I would definately recommend it because I think it provides some great entertainment.

                The film is about a young couple who is played by Ashton and Brittany, who eventually marry each other. But their friends and family didn't want them to marry each other at all. Not only do the happy couple end up marryign each other they also go on a honeymoon to Europe. It seems like their marriage will be ok until Sarah finds out that her parents and ex boyfriend are relaly trying to do everything to break up their marriage! I felt that the storyline was quite good but it could have been improved.

                I really did like the film overall however, to many people I have spoken to they didn't rate it very highly. I thought that the acting was without doubt the best part of the film and perhaps yes the storyline could have been improved. You can now get the film for just under £4 on Amazon which I think is well worth it. I hope this was useful and thank you very much for reading this.

                  Best romantic comedy I've seen so far

                  I saw this film for the first time last December. I am not a fan of romantic comedies, but I remembered that from the official trailers when it was first released in 2003 it seemed quite a funny film.

                  Although I know that a trailer is really no indication of the overall quality of a comedy (they always pick the funniest bits for the trailer, so when you eventually watch the whole movie, you realise you had already seen all the best moments), when it came on TV I decided to give it a try.

                  I was very pleasantly surprised.

                  I found the film enjoyable throughout.

                  The "just married" couple is Sarah (played by Brittany Murphy) and Tom (played by Ashton Kutcher).

                  The opening sequence shows the two arriving at Los Angeles airport back from their honeymoon, and they are mighty pissed off at each other. He drops her off at her family's mansion and they go their separate ways.

                  The next day Tom goes back to work and tells his colleague how he and Sarah had the perfect relationship "that was ruined by marriage" and we are shown a long flashback of how they first met and fell in love, and how after a few short months they decided to get married.

                  As Tom meets Sarah's family, it is clear that apart from Sarah's brother Dickie and Sarah's mother Pussy (no, really), no one else in their household really likes him, as they find him unworthy of their extremely wealthy family, him being just a humble traffic announcer.

                  On this first family gathering, Peter Prentiss (Christopher Kane) is also present. He works for Sarah's dad and turns out to have designs on Sarah.

                  Sarah's father asks her to reconsider marrying so soon, but she is determined and they go ahead with the wedding.

                  There's a scene on the plane when they are on their way to their honeymoon that is quite funny, as they decide to go for a little mile high rendez-vous in the plane's toilet. I love the "claustrophobic" kid part.

                  They go to France, staying at a chateau converted into a hotel. After they get kicked out (I won't say why in order not to spoil it for those who haven't seen the film), there's a funny sequence of events of them having to find alternative accommodation and making their way to Venice in Italy, where they are planning to continue their honeymoon.

                  Finally installed in a 5 star hotel in Venice, they start visiting the city's historical places, but it becomes apparent that their interests differ significantly, as Sarah enjoys exploring the vast cultural offerings, whereas Tom is more interested in watching the football in the American bar he found in a little back street.

                  At this point, Peter Prentiss shows up at their hotel, ostensibly being in Venice on business, but really trying to get Sarah for himself.

                  From this point on there is series of misunderstandings that combine to drive a wedge in Tom and Sarah's relationship, which explains why they were so hostile to each other by the time they got back to the U.S.

                  The final part of the film sees Tom deciding he does not want to give up on his marriage and going after Sarah to try to win her back.

                  The film is packed with great gags and set pieces. The ones with the American floozy who latches onto Tom at the bar and just won't let go are some of the funniest.

                  A major factor in my enjoying this film so much is the empathy the main characters elicit. Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy make Tom and Sarah immensely likeable, and the two actors have great chemistry on screen.

                  The film is also enriched by the minor characters, all very well played.

                  If I were to nitpick, there are three little things that come to mind:

                  - The scene in the airplane toilet: given the circumstances, I find it hard to believe anybody would still be in the mood.

                  - The scene in the french chateau, when Tom forces a U.S. type plug into a french socket: Would anyone with half a brain and without a death wish ever try this?

                  - Brittany Murphy's hair.
                  Brittany, a natural brunette, in this film sports rather conspicuous bleached hair, that looks like a bad DIY job. She's playing an heiress. How such a rich girl (or 20th Century Fox, for that matter) didn't think to use a professional hairdresser to colour her hair properly, I can't tell.

                  I have since acquired the DVD, and have rewatched the film several times. It always makes me laugh.

                    A great easy to watch film!

                    I love this film, and I'm surprised its only got 3 stars up to now!!
                    The film reminds me of me and my own husband!!! We're such good friends that we argue like brother and sister!! Just like Tom and Sarah in Just Married!! They meet on a beach when Tom hits Sarah in the head with a football and they're inseperable from then on, their relationship moved very fast, living together within two months, and then deciding to get married in just 6 months, they're so much in love, they don't argue they have a good time and are generally happy, until they get married...its on their honeymoon when the problems start....they argue, they want to do different things, Tom wants to watch the football, Sarah wants to see the Art. After some very misinterperated things on both sides of the relationship, the couple split up. The story is in a strange order, starting with Tom returning home afer his honeymoon and been depressed about the break up. Then flashbacks show us what lead to the result of them been apart....
                    the story is hillarious, it will have you laughing so much you'll be crying, and by the end you'll be crying anyway!!! (But at least you can pretend its with laughter!!).
                    The film has its bad points, like all do. Parts of the film you can see mistakes made my the actors, which haven't been sorted (i.e. in one of the end scenes you can see Brittany Murphy laughing at one of the lines of another actor), but these are all pointed out in teh extras on the DVD and I don't know but this made me feel betetr about the mistakes in the film, made me feel they were more quirky than wrong!!!
                    The film is easy to watch, and has an easy storyline to follow, great for newly weds...you can sit and nod along with the things which happen as you know they'll resemble you in some way!!!!

                    .

                    I was sitting down watching TV the other night and saw that Just Married was going to be on TV. I haven't seen that film in ages and actually do have it on DVD so I decided to watch it again. Well the film was as funny as I found it last time and it is one of the only things that I have loved Ashton Kutcher in a lot. This review will tell you why I think this silly film is worth watching for a laugh.

                    The story goes as follows. Sarah and Tom met, fell in love and then decided to take the plunge and get married to each other. They are happy and love each other a lot so have a nice wedding and then go on what should be a wonderful Honeymoon visiting places in Europe. What actually happens is a series of events which makes it the Honeymoon from Hell which gets them questioning if they ever should have got married at all.

                    This is an extremely funny concept and as a Honeymoon is supposed to be a beautiful holiday and one of the best of your life, this film shows how that can quickly go from good to bad to worse. Now the story does get your attention straight from the start with a few laughs and then it does keep it throughout. There are a few bits where the film gets a bit annoying but generally it follows a good and satisfying path so the story is not too bad at all.

                    There are different comedies you can watch and Just Married is a complete slapstick comedy so if you do not like this type of humour I suggest you don't even bother trying to watch this one. The laughs come thick and fast and it is a complete feel good film as you finish watching it with a smile on your face.

                    Characters in this film are good as you get a decent amount of character development which makes you enjoy the story that much more. You also get characters here where you can believe that they are real as it is not all slapstick and there are a few sweet moments. Sarah and Tom are utterly believable as newly weds and you actually do like them both by the end of the film.

                    There are not many other characters but Peter is funny as the ex boyfriend and the rest simply pale into insignificance. What I will say is that the characters are fun but don't expect too much from them as it is not the most award winning script.

                    Acting wise and there are not really any problems at all. Brittany Murphy I always find to be hilarious in whatever she does and she is perfect as Sarah. Ashton Kutcher is very hit and miss I think but this film suits his acting down to the ground so he is perfect in his role as he basically gets to play about. Everybody else is fine but you don't see many enough to make a comment over their acting.

                    The film goes on for just over 90 minutes which is about right as any longer and you would get annoyed with the film. It is a certificate 12 which is fine as there is not much bad stuff in there and you can buy it for around £5 now everywhere which is not bad at all for a funny film.

                    On the DVD there are a few special features but not anything that amazing. There is a commentary which is good but I got a little bit bored half way through. Then there is a making of which is funny and some deleted scenes but that is about it, no bloopers at all which is a shame.

                    In conclusion I think it is a funny film which is definitely worth a watch in my opinion. It is not the most amazing comedy but it is funny and if you like slapstick then you cant go much wrong at all. I will give it 3 stars as it is not the worst film but it is enjoyable rubbish really. Just don't expect too much and you will like it.

                    Thanks for reading.

                    great movie. a must-watch for all those who like romantic movies

                    Just Married is a very interesting movie about a couple who decide to marry against their parents' wishes. Indeed, a rich girl, and i mean really rich, marrying a poor guy who works part-time on a radio traffic station would make a very awkward pair. Understandably, the girl's parents weren't very pleased with their daughter's decision. So they send her ex-boyfriend to ruin their relationship while they are on their honeymoon. And what a honeymoon they had! burning hotels, sleeping in snowballs, and doing a lot of crazy things they hadn't necessarily planned.
                    The lead actors, Aston(featuring as Tom) and Brittany(Sarah in the movie), do a wonderful job. They have acted their roles to perfection! And though Brittany sometimes looks like a mentally ill patient, she still manages to look breath-takingly beautiful throughout the movie. And while i wouln't have considered Aston conventionally handsome, he too looks like a guy girls would die for. And the other characters, too, act out their parts very well.

                    The sets, and the beautiful locations where the movie is filmed are charming. What wouldn't i give to spend just one night in Hotel DuReve! That, by the way, is the place the couple initially plan to spend their honeymoon at. The movie takes us all over Europe, and it has changed my perception of that place!
                    The soundtrack is good. They keep on playing a particular music throughout the movie, and i am not particularly pleased about that. But the music is good nonetheless.

                    The best part about the movie must be the story itself. I was beginning to get bored with conventional romantic movies, and this movie comes as a breath of fresh air. The script is very well written, as are the dialogues.
                    I ould definitely recommend this movie if you haven't seen it yet. On a scale of 1 to 10, i award this movie a 8.

                    Pretty Brittany Murphy and prettier Ashton Kutcher make a surprisingly enjoyable comic team in Just Married, a romantic comedy about a horrible honeymoon. After a whirlwind romance, radio traffic announcer Kutcher and rich girl Murphy get married over the objections of her upper-crust family. Their love can overcome snobbery--but as the cuddly pair start to drive each other nuts over mishaps travelling through Europe, it starts to look like their love can't overcome intimacy. Just Married has a sprightly script that keeps one foot on the ground (unlike some recent romantic comedies that seem to have no connection to reality) and one eye on the small ways in which lovers can get on each other's nerves. Kutcher and Murphy have a sweet yet volatile chemistry that keeps the antics lively. --Bret Fetzer
