Two words, folks: runaway dumpster. That's what accidentally throws superstar wedding planner Jennifer Lopez into the arms of her latest client (Matthew McConaughey) in this romantic comedy. And that's the level of comedy here as the two pair up and ride this lame trash heap of a film to its predictable and overexaggerated end. There's actually little wrong individually with Lopez (she's attractive, natch, and sometimes funny) and McConaughey (he's almost charming).
But (and you just knew there'd be a big butt mentioned here) the two laughably mismatched stars generate less electricity than the state of California. And the hoops of cheese they're forced to jump through send the whole thing crashing down. Oh, and in case you forget to laugh, each and every joke, raised eyebrow and wink is accented by annoying, Loony Tunes-inspired music and sound effects. Simply put, this film gives love a bad name.
