Marry Me immediately entered Kristin’s most anticipated movies list. Upon seeing the very first trailer she proclaimed, “That’s going to be terrible. I can’t wait.” She meant it was going to be a schmaltzy Hallmark movie essentially, not terrible as in a poorly made film. We both expected a silly, near unbelievable movie with a lot of cookie cutter tropes.
So we were pleasantly surprised when Marry Me was actually a really good movie! It was marketed wrong we think. It really targeted those viewers looking for the Hallmark formula, but this subverts some tropes we weren’t expecting. It also turn out to not be as cloying as we expected. Tune into the episode to hear the specifics. Suffice it to say though, we really enjoyed it and it’s going in the rotation.
What did you think of Marry Me? Is it a romcom classic or just a cash grab trying to capitalize on Valentine’s Day? Let us know over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! We want to know if you enjoyed it as much as we did! For now though, settle in for today’s Original Songs by JLo-fueled episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
