Shotgun Wedding: Everything you need to know
In Shotgun Wedding (2023), Lopez plays Darcy, who embarks on a lavish island vacation with her fiancé, Tom (Josh Duhamel), in preparation for their dream wedding. Despite several setbacks, such as having to cope with her clinging but well-intentioned future mother-in-law, Carol (Jennifer Coolidge), and her suave and attractive ex, Sean (Lenny Kravitz), nothing can derail Darcy and Tom’s perfect day. That is, until all of their wedding guests are kidnapped by pirates, forcing Darcy and Tom to become unlikely action heroes in order to stop the armed band of goons and rescue their wedding (and guests). You can also check out the official plot synopsis for the movie below:
In Shotgun Wedding, Darcy (Jennifer Lopez) and Tom (Josh Duhamel) gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding, just as the couple begin to get cold feet. And if that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken hostage. “’Til Death Do Us Part” takes on a whole new meaning in this hilarious, adrenaline-fueled adventure as Darcy and Tom must save their loved ones—if they don’t kill each other first.
