Original and funny, with some food for thought
profesorsaravi11 December 2022
In this age of apps for almost anything, why not an app to improve our marriage? The premise sounds interesting but, of course, things may not go as well as supposed to develop. When a marriage starts to decay, both partners are lured to an almost magic solution to simultaneously satisfy husband an wife and strengthen the bond between them. My wife and I really enjoyed this well paced film, with fine performances by both leading actors and a very good supporting cast. It has neither nudity nor violence and just the necessary dose of "bad" language. In our opinion it is the best Argentinian comedy of 2022. Strongly recommended for almost all audiences!

Not Bad

Warning: Spoilers
I did not have high expectations before watching the movie. In general, it can be said that the acting of the leading roles was acceptable. The story had a strange narrative, it can almost be said that the machine gave points fictionally, that is, it had no scientific basis and a little more effort should have been made to make the machine more scientific. For example, when the actors realized that they were pretending and gaining points, the machine nevertheless It gave points, as if the software was just waiting for affectionate or romantic phrases to be issued to give points, contrary to what was said, this device can measure the level of serotonin and dopamine, etc. Because the level of these neurotransmitters does not increase by pretending, and this was the bad point of the story. The software should have worked in a scientific way and really gave points by increasing the level of serotonin and dopamine, and recognized fakes and lies.

At the beginning of the story, it was good because Belen and Federico didn't know that they were pretending, but after the truth of the matter became clear, the device kept giving out and it was a bit strange and imaginative.

There is nothing wrong with using imagination in the film, but when such an imagination has a scientific basis, it should match. I think that if the device worked well, they would have realized sooner that this lifestyle is not useful and they should avoid pretending and lying.

In the end, it can be said that it was not a bad movie and it was worth watching once, and its positive points were some funny and interesting sequences of the movie, apart from the concept and final content and the purpose of making this movie.

Finally, I apologize for some errors in this text due to my poor English.

Interesting idea, piss-poor execution
pabloliva10 January 2023
While the idea might sound fun at first, the characters are incredibly flat and most of the acting is terrible; Lopilato and Minujin, the leads, try to do what they can, but they can only do so much, and the supporting actors are awful.

The deus ex machina that's at the core of the movie (the device and app that scores points for being a good partner) is by far the weakest point of the movie. We're told it's really advanced and it can measure the users' mental state, but in reality it has no sarcasm or fraud detection, thus enabling a lot of really toxic mechanisms to "game" the system.

Unfunny, trite, and rushed. Do yourself a favor and look for another movie.

Effective, fun and heartwarming
lucimaldonado-200527 December 2022
If you're looking for a contemporary rom-com, then look no further. The Marriage App or Matrimillas is an excellent way to spend an evening with your partner. The story is about a dysfunctional couple. They find a device that allows them to earn points for doing nice things for their partner. The idea, quite original by the way, serves as a great excuse to watch these two characters do a lot of nice things for their partner but for the wrong reasons. I don't want to spoil anything so just watch it if you're looking for a funny movie with a tech and creative twist. Specially good for watching with your partner!

Fun movie
amyjbagnall9 January 2023
So many movies don't have an ending now- they just end in the middle of the story and I hate that. This one had a beginning, middle & an ending. I loved how the couple interacted with each other - it was very realistic. Especially the part where the man says he doesn't communicate very well. My husband said this recently, and also my beastie, who is male. It's very true.

The kids were cute abd although their characters weren't fleshed out as much as other roles, it was fine.

There were some comic members, as well.

This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. I really enjoyed it. Perhaps you'll like it, too.
