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
When radio reporter Tom (Ashton Kutcher) and aspiring novelist Sarah (Brittany Murphy) fall in love, it seems that nothing in the world can come between them, not even the disapproval of their friends and family. Sarah and Tom soon get married and head off for a month-long dream honeymoon in Italy, but bad luck and Sarah's jealous ex-boyfriend conspire to create havoc wherever the happy couple go. It's not long before the newlyweds begin to suspect that their honeymoon might last longer than their marriage.
