SAVE THE DAY.
Darcy and Tom (Jennifer Lopez, Josh Duhamel) are getting married on an island in the Philippines when pirates attack, taking their families hostage. Not that there’s any single ingredient here that works considerably better than the rest, but the comedy is so uninspired that maybe the whole project should’ve been turned into a straight ”wedding Die Hard” action movie instead. Still, diverting enough, with a cast that looks like they enjoyed their Dominican vacation thoroughly. And we do get to see Jennifer Coolidge fire an automatic weapon in slow motion.
2023-U.S. VOD. 100 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Jason Moore. Cast: Jennifer Lopez (Darcy Rivera), Josh Duhamel (Tom Fowler), Jennifer Coolidge (Carol Fowler), Sonia Braga, Cheech Marin, Callie Hernandez… Lenny Kravitz.
