‘Marry Me’: Michelle Buteau Stars In New Musical Rom-Com

The new romantic comedy features a star-studded cast and is dropping just in time for Valentine’s Day.

This Valentine’s Day, viewers will witness a new romantic story unfold. Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Bobby Crosby, Marry Me is a reversed Cinderella story, a tale of a pop star who ties the knot with a math teacher in a stunt wedding during a live concert.

Directed by Kat Coiro (A Case of You), the romantic comedy follows superstar Kat Valdez (Lopez), who had planned to marry another musician, Bastian (played by Maluma), at a concert before she discovers he’s been cheating on her. Heartbroken, she decides to marry a random concertgoer named Charlie (Owen Wilson) instead.

The movie also stars Michelle Buteau (First Wives Club), who plays Valdez’s assistant and ride-or-die friend Melissa. She is brutally honest, straightforward, and always has Valdez’s back. “Melissa is a sassy, tell it like it is, kind of like a know-it-all, really good with social media. She’s not a fan of Charlie at first, but maybe she comes around. You’ll have to see the movie to find out,” Buteau told HM.
