Shotgun Wedding Review
The movie Shotgun Wedding movie starts with a great kick along with the wedding rehearsal at a secluded Philippine island resort that brings the families of Darcy and Tom together. At the same time, some oddball relatives, dangerous acquaintances, and unwanted guests show up.
The attention has been drawn by Darcy’s former fiance Sean because he arrives for the wedding in a helicopter. But the wedding ceremony has not gone according to plan. In fact, the movie’s trailer has already given enough hints about what all goes wrong. Differences resurface between the bride and groom while the guests are taken hostage by pirates. Mess and mayhem unfold before the vows are exchanged.
The bride in her elaborate wedding dress and the groom in his nifty tux swing into action. Together, they create some thrilling moments in this action comedy. Yet, the actors, both good-looking and blessed with perfect bodies, fail to whip up enough chemistry between them.
In the movie, a last-minute conflict arises. Tom being too much of a perfectionist while Darcy is having cold feet — does not seem convincing. Though Lopez, with her vast experience in handling romantic-comedy-action movies. Still, the audience failed to understand her fears.
In the movie Shotgun Wedding, one of the biggest shortcomings is the failure to explore Coolidge’s comic talent to add more light-hearted moments to the narrative. As Tom’s simple-hearted mother Carol is fun but does not have much to do. That could be because the movie seems to rely more on action sequences than comedy to hold the audience’s attention.
