JLo and Ben Affleck’s wedding is compared to Netflix’s persuasion as movie trends


There are celebrity couples, and then there are Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Affectionately named Bennifer, the pair of A-listers were the hottest couple of the early 2000s before they broke up. Audiences were shocked when they reunited recently, especially for such a short time after breaking up with A-Rod. Bennifer 2.0 has officially got married in Vegaswith JLo and Affleck’s marriage compared to Netflix‘s Persuasion than movie trends.

Persuasion was released on Netflix a few weeks ago and has been among the streaming service’s top movies during that time. There has been some backlash around the Jane Austen adaptation, specifically related to modern dialogue. And now some people are comparing JLo and Ben Affleck’s marriage to this well-known story on social media like Twitter. One such person posted their thoughts saying:

The real Persuasion 2022 update is JLo and Ben Affleck escaping to Vegas.

Touches. Persuasion is about a woman named Anne (in this new movie played by Dakota Johnson), who reunites with her former fiancé, Captain Frederick (Cosmo Jarvis) years after they split. A second romance blossoms between the two protagonists, as Jane Austen’s epic stories so often do. And ever since Ben Affleck and JLo had such a great second attempt, there’s been a lot of people talking about those similarities online.

The comparisons also happened thanks to the film’s mixed reviews from Netflix. Persuasion. While he stars fifty shades icon Dakota Johnson, there has been quite a bit of criticism of the streaming projects. This apparently helped boost comparisons to Bennifer’s recent nuptials, as another Twitter user posted:

Netflix is ​​set to make a new adaptation of Persuasion entirely using JLo/Affleck’s found footage.

Honestly, I would watch. Considering how hugely popular they were in the early 2000s, smart money says there would be a slew of footage to piece together in the script of Persuasion. The couple have been open about how hard it was to manage the attention back then, but now they are apparently in a better position to handle that kind of coverage. Another amusing comparison with Persuasion which has made its way online reads:

So you’re telling me JLo and Affleck got away the weekend Netflix released Jane Austen’s Persuasion, the best book about love that gets a second chance? “You pierce my soul. I’m half agony, half hope…I haven’t loved anyone but you” is the male version of #DearBen.

“Dear Ben” was a track from Jennifer Lopez’s 2002 album It’s me… So. The song was obviously written for/about Ben Affleck, a song that some younger fans are only just discovering now that Bennifer is back. Their romance continues to be compared to Persuasion online, which another user simply puts:

The Bennifer Saga is a better adaptation of Persuasion than Persuasion (2022)

Shots fired. But as mentioned before, the reception for Persuasion was a mixed bag of reviews. He is currently sitting at 30% on rotten tomatoes, although the audience score is a bit more lenient at 67%. And it certainly looks like the movie is getting a ton of views on Netflix.

Persuasion is streaming now on Netflix, as is The Jennifer Lopez documentary half time. Be sure to check out the 2022 movie release dates to plan your next cinematic experience.
