The slapstick in this movie is utterly perfect, and while watching it I began thinking how great it would be for the director to do something less cheesy, more… all-out slapstick of old. So I’m pretty happy to hear he’s doing the new Pink Panther movie. Of all the contemporary directors I’m aware of, he’s the only one who can hope to approach the Panther like the originals. But onto Just Married… I didn’t think I’d ever be comfortable watching Ashton Kutcher for a whole movie, but he’s not too annoying. The whole opening, which precedes the flashback that is the bulk of the movie, is brilliant. Brittany Murphy is always worth watching, and this movie, which is by no means my kind of movie, proves this point for me. It drags as the gags repeat themselves and the story becomes a simple working-towards-the-ending, but overall, one of the better modern comedies.
