3:22 Does he mean Etsy? Why would there be a boat situation on Etsy?
12:26 Wedding speeches are the worst.
15:31 Well, if it was ever in question, J-Lo is the sexiest woman on the planet.
23:41 “I certainly didn’t need a wedding registry. I have my things already. I like my things.” “I wanted a Roomba.”
26:34 Spiky balaclava is properly terrifying.
39:17 “Do something basebally.” Not sure baseball has that many practical applications.
43:22 I love that she can only cope with plans with one step.
57:22 She’s gone full Rambo here, the boots really set something off.
1:02:15 Mmm, bunker.
1:15:35 “Maybe he wanted to take her extra hostage.”
1:26:11 “I am not a monster, I am an entrepreneur.” Hmm.
1:33:00 Ah, Ryan Reynolds was an exec producer? That makes so much sense!


I was expecting this to be your traditional cheesy rom-com wedding movie but it turned out to be a proper comedy that was a lot more enjoyable than I’d anticipated. Jennifer Lopez is great, and I loved the chemistry between her and Duhamel, which seemed to grow and evolve with the movie just as it should have done.

The story was good, it was a little bit reminiscent of The Lost City - two people bumbling about the jungle and somehow managing to survive against the bad guys and against all the odds, but it was a bit more grounded than that film… whilst still being ridiculous, obviously.

And of course Jennifer Coolidge stole the show because we are living in a golden age of Coolidge that I don’t want to ever end. A great fun film full of laughs.

Rating: 5 / 5
