Guns, hostages, helicopters, grenades...it may not be your typical wedding registry, but those are just a few of the things that are featured in Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel's new Prime Video rom-com, Shotgun Wedding (and if you couldn't already guess, that title is not a reference to our *usual* understanding of a “shotgun wedding”).
Instead, this action comedy directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) follows newlyweds-to-be Darcy (Lopez) and Tom (Duhamel), as they attempt to celebrate their nuptials on a remote island with their loved ones, only to have the special ceremony interrupted by a group of weapon-wielding pirates.
Thanks to its tropical setting and the action scenes that ensue, Shotgun Wedding feels similar to the 2022 hit rom-com The Lost City. But you know what The Lost City didn't have? Jennifer Coolidge (The White Lotus), who is a scene-stealer throughout, along with Lopez, who brings her usual brand of comedy.
