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.
i really like this movie sue me
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and this film probably should have stayed there. Maybe it's because I watched it recently but it reminded me of How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days in regard to these two people being in a relationship for contrived reasons. What Happens in Vegas is not nearly as good however.
Diaz and Kutcher play two strangers that drunkenly get married in Las Vegas, and then one of them wins $3 million with the other's quarter. They are then court ordered to live together for six months before getting a divorce and receiving the money. It's a plot that makes no sense at all, but it allows for all kinds of shenanigans.
This was pretty funny, and had a killer soundtrack!
Ashton Kutcher's speech at the end got me, it wasn't like a clique end of romcom speech, it actually got me!
This had charisma and fine cinematography (especially the outdoor shots) but that's about it, other than the decent cameos by the ever-dependable Queen Latifah and Dennis Miller. Blatingly and excruciatingly predictable. 'Packaged product' to the max. Even the TV-watching experience, which bloated the 99-minute film to 150 minutes, was abhorrent and a complete travesty.
Films like this make me glad that indie cinema both survives and thrives in America, and that as few films like this are made as possible. Stars Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz, though their 'target audiences' want and expect films like this (rom-coms) from them, should be ashamed, for they have more talent (yes, I'm serious) in their pinky fingers than they show anywhere in this…
i forgot how hilarious this film was
It was a fair bit of fun, I laughed and I didn't absolutely want to punch all characters in this, so hey, that's better than most rom-coms!
Pues luego son necesarias estas peiculitas con Cameron Diaz y Ashton Kutcher nomás para pasar el rato. Divertida, supongo.

feel free to add more if i missed any.
