Wedding days are already so stressful, but when pirates threaten Darcy (Jennifer Lopez) and Tom’s (Josh Duhamel) ceremony, the chaos reaches a new level. All the happy couple wants is to get through their destination wedding in the Philippines with different family members and friends hashing out old and new drama. Rather than the typical challenges like cold feet or misplaced rings, the dynamic duo has to overcome some major hurdles just to say “I Do.”
Director Jason Moore (“Pitch Perfect”) brings Mark Hammer’s script to life with the help of an impressive ensemble cast. Two key needle-drop moments solidify this action-filled romantic comedy.
