Merry Matrimony movie review


You think they end up together by the end of the film?

So… Yeah, Merry Matrimony is not a Christmas movie. Not really. This movie could take place during any holiday and it’d still be a RomCom without the Com.  it could just as easily be called Labor Day Love and you’d barely have to change anything.

That’s not to say that this movie is necessarily terrible, but it merely takes place at Christmas time rather than be a Christmas flick. That’s true for a lot of these made for tv movies, but they usually do a little work to tie in Christmas, but this time… not really.
Anyway, the plot is boiler plate romance with zero obstacles keeping you from the obvious and inevitable conclusion.  Ok, I take it back – this movie is terrible because it’s boring and as far as I’m concerned, that’s the worst thing you can do with art. At least give us something to talk about.
If you want to veg out in front of the tv, I guess Merry Matrimony might be for you, but don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
Oh, I forgot about the ending! Holy hell, is it convoluted and silly. It’s almost worth watching this flick just for the “Are you kidding?” factor.
