Spontaneity seems to go hand in hand with meet cutes, but not necessarily weddings. Except in the case of “Marry Me,” which finds Jennifer Lopez playing a popular music artist who marries a random fan (played by Owen Wilson) on the spot when she discovers her fiancé cheated on her. That’s the premise of this old-fashioned romantic comedy, which then finds Lopez and Wilson’s characters essentially meeting one another after getting married.

What Is “Marry Me” About?
Superstar power couple Kat Valdez (Jennifer Lopez) and Bastian (Maluma) have fallen for each other, capturing millions of fans’ hearts in the process.

But when a video of Bastian cheating on Kat with her assistant leaks just before she goes on stage, Kat takes things into her own hands and decides to marry an audience member spur of the moment.
That audience member is Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson), math teacher and single dad who was dragged to the concert by his friend and coworker Parker Debbs (Sarah Silverman) along with his daughter Lou (Chloe Coleman). Charlie goes along with the wedding, helping Kat out in her moment of need, and the two then develop a close bond as they play the marriage out and actually get to know each other.
