Shotgun Wedding falls flat

In this action-packed romantic comedy, Jennifer Lopez is the starring lead in what was supposed to be a beautiful wedding but turned out to be a hostage disaster. 

The acting was good and it had the right amount of action and romance. There were also a lot of great actors and actresses in this film, including leading stars Jennifer Lopez, Josh Duhamel, Jennifer Coolidge and so many more. 

However for “Shotgun Wedding,” the script itself is where things could’ve been better. The actors made it work, but there was just so much going on in this film. 

Not only is there family drama at this wedding, but the fact that it has a hostage situation makes this film more exciting and makes you want to see what happens. 

Most of the plot of the movie was still good though, every character was connected somehow and it all came together at the end.  

The setting of this wedding is in the Philippines, which made the shots of this film stunning. There were great camera angles at some points.

Some parts of the movie were predictable, but they made up for it by casting the right people. 

The cast helped to make “Shotgun Wedding” better. Everyone did great with what they were given. If there were different actors and actresses, it would have made the film terrible and hard to watch. 

Many viewers’ expectations were elevated because of the nonstop trailers and advertising for this movie, the bar was set high and many people were expecting more, including me.  

With Jason Moore as the director, you’re not sure what to expect. Ge’s also directed all of the Pitch Perfects, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and more. 

All of this being said, the film came off as more of an old sitcom with its script, but if you go in with an open mind, you may be satisfied.
