Just Married was written by Sam Harper and directed by Shawn Levy. The main characters are Tom Leezak (played by Ashton Kutcher) and Sarah McNerney (played by Brittany Murphy). The movie begins with Tom reminiscing about his relationship and what went wrong. Tom and his buddies were playing football on the beach when Sarah walked by with her dog. Tom misfired on a deep pass and hit her right in the face. He rushed over to console her and it was love at first sight. From then on they spent all their time together. Not long after meeting they decide to get married. Sarah is from a wealthy family and Tom is just a part time radio host that comes from a middle class family. Her parents do not want to accept him because he is not wealthy. Despite her family's acceptance they get married and embark on a romantic honeymoon in Europe. However this is not the honeymoon they expected. It turns out to be a series of events that make them question if they truly love each other. A family friend named Peter follows them on their honeymoon and causes a rift between them. There is also a mis-communication leading Sarah to the belief that Tom is already having an affair with another woman. They each have a lie that they disclose to one another during the honeymoon. He had accidentally killed her dog and she had slept with Peter in the past. After the honeymoon they cannot stand each other. They decide to separate. She moves back in with her parents and he goes back to his apartment. After a short time without Sarah, Tom realizes that he will never be happy unless he has his wife. He then makes a desperate romantic attempt to get her back. They fall in love, out of love, and realize they love each other again in this fun romantic comedy.
