'Marry Me' and the everlasting appeal of a Jennifer Lopez rom-com

J. Lo "has a vulnerability that makes a rom-com, a rom-com. People see that and recognize it and instantly fall in love with her," actor Tyler Posey said.

Ask anyone who knows her in the entertainment industry and they’ll tell you: Jennifer Lopez is the queen of the romantic-comedy genre.

Sure, she's also a global music sensation, dancer and mom to two children. But on screen, she shines in leading roles where viewers can't look away from her characters' journeys to finding love.

Milo Ventimiglia, who played her husband in the 2018 film “Second Act,” told NBC News, “She’s larger than life but somehow the most relatable person in the world on the big screen.”

Tyler Posey, who played her son in “Maid in Manhattan,” one of her most famous rom-coms, said she “just has a vulnerability that makes a rom-com, a rom-com. People see that and recognize it and instantly fall in love with her.”

And Kat Coiro, director of Lopez’s latest rom-com, “Marry Me,” described her as the “perfect” candidate for the lead.

The Universal Pictures film, which hits theaters Friday, is Lopez’s first rom-com since 2018.  (Universal Pictures and NBC News are both owned by parent company NBCUniversal).

In it, Lopez plays Kat Valdez, a Latin pop superstar who, in a moment of inspired insanity, marries a random audience member named Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) during a concert performance after learning about the infidelity of her fiancé, Bastian (Maluma)
