Full of original songs by Jennifer Lopez and world-class Latin music star Maluma, Marry Me stars Lopez as the star Kat Valdez and Owen Wilson as Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher – two strangers who agrees to marry and only then get to know each other. An unlikely love story between two different people looking for something real in a world where value is based on likes and fans, Marry Me is a modern romantic comedy about celebrity, marriage and social media.
Kat Valdez (Lopez) is half of the sexiest celebrity couple, along with the newest emerging star, Bastian (Maluma, who is making her feature film debut). As Kat and Bastian’s hit “Marry Me” hits the charts, they are about to get married in front of an audience of their fans, in a ceremony that will be broadcast on several platforms.
Divorced math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) finds himself forced to go to a concert by his daughter Lou (Chloe Coleman, Big Little Lies, HBO) and his best friend (Sarah Silverman). When Kat finds out a few seconds before the ceremony that Bastian cheated on her with her nurse, her life takes an unexpected turn. On stage, Kat decides to question love, truth, and loyalty in public, and launches a shocking marriage proposal, for the one who will say, even without his will, “Yes,” is the innocent math teacher, practically a man from a completely different planet than the international star.
If what you know disappoints you, then maybe what you don’t know is the answer, and so, in a moment of inspired madness, Kat chooses to marry Charlie. What begins as an impulsive reaction evolves into an unexpected love. But as the forces conspire to separate them, the universal question arises: can two people from such different worlds bridge the gap between them and build a place of their own?
