Jennifer Lopez: 'Outrageous' adventure tests couple's resolve in 'Shotgun Wedding'

Jennifer Lopez says the engaged couple at the heart of her new action-comedy, Shotgun Wedding, was in trouble even before gun-toting hostage-takers crashed their nuptials.

Premiering Friday on Prime Video, the movie follows Darcy (Lopez) 

and groomzilla Tom (Josh Duhamel) as they try to save their loved ones from the pirates threatening to kill them at Tom's dream destination wedding at a private beach resort in the Philippines.

Among the guests are Darcy's bickering divorced parents Renata (Sonia Braga) 

and Robert (Cheech Marin), her ex-fiance Sean (Lenny Kravitz), and Tom's down-to-earth mom Carol (Jennifer Coolidge) and dad Larry (Steve Coulter).

"There's so much that happens, but the core of it is these families coming together 

and Darcy and Tom really figuring out who they are and how they are going to make this marriage work 

and if they can make this marriage work," Lopez said in a recent virtual press conference, comparing the film's tonal DNA to that of the 1984 classic, Romancing the Stone.
