We’ve seen Jennifer Lopez don a gorgeous white dress and play the bride in six different roles (seven if you count Selena) — and now yet another has officially arrived.

Starring in Shotgun Wedding, Jennifer Lopez takes on the role of Darcy, a soon-to-be bride who is planning a wedding that she’d perhaps soon rather forget. You can start streaming it now on Prime Video here.

With Jennifer Coolidge as the overbearing mother-in-law who knows no bounds, and Lenny Kravitz as the wedding crashing ex (en route a helicopter nonetheless) this action-packed comedy ticks all the boxes.

Here, we’ve gathered everything you need to know before tuning in for the movie yourself.

What is Shotgun Wedding about?

As per the synopsis, Shotgun Wedding follows Darcy (Jennifer Lopez) and Tom (Josh Duhamel) as they gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding.

Just as the couple begin to get cold feet before they’re set to walk down the aisle, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken hostage by balaclava-wearing criminals.

“’Til Death Do Us Part” takes on a whole new meaning in this hilarious, adrenaline-fuelled adventure as Darcy and Tom must save their loved ones — if they don’t kill each other first that is.
