In Shotgun Wedding, Darcy Rivera and Tom Fowler are about to exchange vows on a stunning island in the Philippines when a group of pirates appear out of nowhere and kidnap the wedding attendees. The armed pirates want to extort a sizable sum of money from Darcy’s father, and they will stop at nothing to get their hands on the plunder.
The bride and groom, however, have not been captured by the pirates, who have all the guests imprisoned in one place. Darcy and Tom weren’t involved in the drama because they were away having a contentious conversation about their upcoming wedding while all the mayhem was going on.
The (kind of) happy couple realises what has transpired and immediately sets out to seek assistance. But in order to accomplish this, they must avoid being captured themselves and prevent tragedy from marring their special day.
Shotgun Wedding, an action comedy directed by Jason Moore, stars Lenny Kravitz, Jennifer Lopez, Josh Duhamel, Jennifer Coolidge, Cheech Marin, Sonia Braga, Steve Coulter, and Cheech Marin. The film, which is brand-new to Amazon Prime Video as of today, is a fun adventure full of explosions, slapstick humour, and clever quips.
The film is enjoyable, frivolous, not to be taken seriously, and a good way to escape reality. It won’t strain the brain, doesn’t tyre, and is more than capable of lifting the spirits of its audience on a gloomy January day.
Josh Duhamel and Jennifer Lopez, who portray the parts of soon-to-be-weds Darcy and Tom, take the lead in the movie. The pleasant screen presence that both performers possess is used to great effect in this scene.
Particularly entertaining and seeming like she’s having a blast in this movie is Lopez. Although Lopez maintains her immaculate appearance even as explosives explode in Shotgun Wedding, do you really expect anything less from J-Lo?
Together with Duhamel, the two make the ideal team. As they try to avoid the antagonists of the plot, they have a great chemistry on screen and provide plenty of laughter.
Now, I would claim that Lopez and Duhamel have all the best lines in this movie, but in reality, despite the fact that they appear in the most of the best sequences, Jennifer Coolidge, who plays Tom’s mother Carol in a supporting role, has the funniest lines. With her comedic line delivery, Coolidge practically steals every scene she is in.
In this film, she is accompanied by Cheech Marin, Sonia Braga, and Steve Coulter who play the other parents; nevertheless, while Coolidge is there, the other parents are helpless. She doesn’t actively seek out the spotlight; rather, it just comes her way and elevates her to stardom.
Aside from the entertaining performances, the film features a lot of drama, spectacle, and a few solid set pieces. There is ample value for anyone’s money, even though this is not Lethal Weapon nor Die Hard.
Shotgun Wedding would fit in perfectly on a list of “Enjoyable Fluff That Provides Plenty of Entertainment,” even though it is unlikely to be included in a list of the “Best Movies of the Year.” It accomplishes precisely what you may anticipate it to, but it does so well, and that is plenty in my book.
Shotgun Wedding is good entertainment whether you watch it now or save it for a date night. ple of weeks to move it closer to Valentine’s Day. This is a heartfelt celebration of love thanks to Lopez, Duhamel, and all the action scenes, with Coolidge serving as the cherry on top.
