What Happens in Vegas
During a wild vacation in Las Vegas, career woman Joy McNally and playboy Jack Fuller come to the sober realization that they have married each other after a night of drunken abandon. They are then compelled, for legal reasons, to live life as a couple for a limited period of time. At stake is a large amount of money.
Lie #1 This is a comedy
It isn't. We can talk long or short about it, but it just isn't. There are no jokes. There is no fun. No one is funny. An absence of humour. No fun whatsoever. None. Zilch. Zero. Nada. Nichts. Rien. Niks.
Lie#2 Diaz and Kutchner are great.
Nope. They have about as much chemistry as an amoeba and a doorknob. And they're not funny. At all.
Lie#3 What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas
No it doesn't. It makes its way to your screen, infesting your brain with its IQ numbing moronicness.
Lie #4 This is a must see film!
Nope. Mainly for the simple fact that you've already seen it and know how it will end.
I lamented Dennis Farina the entire running time. All 99 minutes of it.
Watched as part of my July Vegas Challenge.
I don't know why I hate rom-coms so much. Perhaps it's the predictable storyline? The unlikable stereotypical male/female archetypes? Or perhaps the sheer unrealism of the romantic storyline? Well whatever the reason, this film has all three!
After a drunken evening in Las Vegas, recently fired Jack and recently dumped Joy get married. The next morning, after agreeing that they should end their marriage, Jack inadvertently wins $3 million. This then leads to a court battle over their divorce and the $1.5 million dollars each.
Of course, after several attempts to tarnish each other's character for the courts (which includes making a mockery of domestic abuse), Jack and Joy end up falling…
What Happens in Vegas, and especially everything that happened later, should have stayed in the head of Dana Fox. I loathe Ashton Kutcher--who honestly is less talented than your garden-variety chimpanzee--so despite Cameron Diaz this one have been collecting dust for years. I now wish it had been consumed by that dust.
This isn't funny, it isn't romantic, Kutcher and Diaz have no chemistry, and the story is formulaic and completely out of sync. Diaz in her underwear isn't even close to salvage this piece of crap as a one star movie.
Si su título original ya era cliché, ¿qué necesidad tuvieron nuestros traductores patrios de repetir la construcción "Algo pasa..." en otra película de de la Diaz?
Un cóctel ideal de tópicos y situaciones tan inverosímiles que molestan. Aunque ha sido mi segundo visionado, ya sabía a qué me enfrentaba. Culpo a la pobre oferta televisiva de la madrugada de los lunes y a una siesta de 5h que me pegué de tarde.
It was on tv and I was drunk and couldn't sleep.
Pues luego son necesarias estas peiculitas con Cameron Diaz y Ashton Kutcher nomás para pasar el rato. Divertida, supongo.
I love Lake Bell; like, I love Lake Bell. Also I love the fake relationship premise tbh. Nevertheless, this was implausible and lacklustre :/
this movie is the epitome of cameron diaz's bad career choices
This movie should've stayed in Vegas am I right hahaha
When Jerry and George are writing the pilot for their sitcom in Seinfeld, they keep coming back to a story where George is sentenced to be someone's butler. He got a in a car accident and doesn't have money blah blah blah. It is in there as an example of a hack sitcom premise that might come up on Laverne and Shirley or Happy Days.
What Happens in Vegas is based on an even stupider sitcom type premise, in which a judge (played by the loathsome Dennis Miller) sentences a couple to live together so that they can share the money they won at a slot machine.
As soon as this happens, you know exactly what is going to happen…
Cameron Diaz's legs are my entire sexuality
Worth one watch.
Silly romantic comedies never hurt anyone and here is another good premise for the genre hampered by childish execution. It's a shame, as the leads (Kutcher and Diaz) are cute, and the supporting cast is almost too good to be true (Rob Corddry, Lake Bell, Jason Sudeikis, Treat Williams, Dennis Farina, Queen Latifah, Zach Galifianakis, Dennis Miller - for starters!). A fine group of players given much too little to work with.
Also, I question whether the filmmakers really knows how to build good comedy, since the funniest scene in the entire film (one between Corddry and Galifianakis) actually appears after the end credits!
Wanna get drunk? Here's a game to play while watching this:
Take a shot every time there's a joke that's not funny
Take a shot every time there is no chemistry between these two leads
Take a shot every time you roll your eyes
Take a shot for every misogynistic comment
Take a shot for every homophobic comment
Take three shots once you realise how much time you wasted on this film
