We rate J. Lo’s performance in ”The Wedding Planner”
PREMISE Lopez plays an efficient wedding planner who unravels when she falls for a client whose nuptials she is arranging.
LOVE INTEREST Matthew McConaughey, the client whose cold feet Lopez warms
OVERBEARING FATHER FIGURE Alex Rocco, as her old-world papa who’s trying to set her up in an arranged marriage
HER CHARACTER’S ANCESTRY Italian
MEMORABLE MOMENT During a visit to a sculpture garden, Lopez and McConaughey accidentally Bobbitt-ize a statue and try to repair it with Krazy Glue, leading to an embarrassing American Pie 2 situation.
WHAT EW SAID ”Lopez’s vibe is that of someone afraid to get mussed” in this ”perfunctory catered affair.”
J. LO’S GRADE C+
THE MOVIE C
