In Shotgun Wedding, Darcy (Jennifer Lopez) and Tom (Josh Duhamel) gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding, just as the couple begin to get cold feet. And if that wasn't enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone's lives are in danger when the entire party is taken hostage. "'Til Death Do Us Part" takes on a whole new meaning in this hilarious, adrenaline-fueled adventure as Darcy and Tom must save their loved ones--if they don't kill each other first.

I love ensemble casts. And Shotgun Wedding had a fun one!
I don't understand why Shotgun Wedding got dissed by the critics. It was exactly what you expect from a romantic comedy. The trailer is true to the movie. I'm not a big fan of romcoms but this one had a lot of action. What does every action movie have? You guessed it...a helicopter explosion. So technically Shotgun Wedding is an action movie.

My husband and I had a great time watching it. It is kind of predictable, but most movies are. But it made up for it with some funny moments and leaning heavily toward the action element. Not many romcoms have people getting blown up (only the bad guys get blown up). 

If you aren't really into romcoms but you know someone who is, this is a movie both of you can enjoy. Light-hearted and silly, just sit back and enjoy this popcorn entertainment and don't think to hard about it.

My husband and I give it 4 "" Sheep

  1. Great movie! I'm already looking forward to my wedding. I'm thrilled with the custom vintage engagement ring my fiancé surprised me with. Its timeless beauty and intricate design immediately captured my heart. Choosing a vintage ring carries a sense of history and uniqueness, which aligns with our values. It's not only a sustainable choice but also adds a touch of exclusivity to our love story. The sentimental value attached to this ring makes it even more special.
