Just Married

A forced screwball comedy for teenagers, partly redeemed by Brittany Murphy's giddy performance as a writer from a wealthy family who embarks on a whirlwind romance with a handsome meathead (Ashton Kutcher of Dude, Where's My Car?). The puppy love evaporates shortly after they take their vows, and various unnecessary misadventures during an Italian honeymoon drive them to the point of separation. Of course the template for this kind of comedy requires the hero to come across with a public declaration of love that warms the bride's doubtful parents, so that true love, backed by a wallet full of plastic, might conquer all. Sam Harper wrote the script, which he claims is based on his own honeymoon, and director Shawn Levy (Big Fat Liar) contributes some cheap but effective slapstick. 94 min.
