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.
...Stays in Vegas.
(I'm probably the millionth person to make that joke but it's true. I don't care.)
"I was drunk, I didn't know what I was doing" The plot of the film, and ironically, also the plot of me choosing to watch this film.
"Hey men, don't you hate how girls style their hair forever and don't let you fuck anyone else? And hey ladies, don't you hate it when guys leave the toilet seat up? All of that's really dumb, but y'know what, money is cool and boobs are so nice, and Ashton Kutcher looks cute when he's quiet."
There's a whole scene devoted to the statement, "Isn't domestic abuse just the silliest thing?"
This was the only movie I hadn't already seen that was playing on HBO at 8:30 AM.
This movie is okay. A few laughs. One romantic comedy that happens in Las Vegas, between a man and a woman that have no feels at all try to like each other.
One of the worst films I've seen in months. The cover says that it's a perfect date movie so I can't help imagining myself on a date watching this crap. If the other one should laugh at it without pointing out something such as "how lame is that", it probably would be the last time they'll ever see me. So in that sense, it works. I had low expectations but the movie is even worse than that. Pointless running around, overacting with no acting skills, punchlines such as "Dad, I am your son" and the unspeakably bad taste make up this junk that I would gladly destroy from the surface of this planet. I would rather recommend an honest euthanasia.
Now, I've had an upset stomach today. And I was wondering what the cause of it might be, yknow? Because I had a Chinese style ready meal last night and it had crustaceans in it and they can be a bit dodgy. Or perhaps it's a latent side effect of mixing the antibiotics the dentist gave me with the course of antidepressants I'm currently on, even though they told me it would be fine?
But then I remembered that I was watching What Happens In Vegas at the time, so it was probably that.
Uvijek sam mislio, da je vrijeme sekspila za Cameron Diaz odavno svršeno vrijeme, ali sam se itekako prevario. Apsolutno savršen horny DČ time. Klasična komedija za pustit mozak na pašu. Ashton Kutcher apsolutno katastrofalno retardirano glumi sve dok se ne prestane glupirat. Uopće neznam na koju foru mu je gluma iz "Ludih sedamdesetih" prolazila i u ostalim filmovima, jer je to na granici gledljivog. Ima nekih full lajkabilnih scena i nekako je feel good kako se sve bliži kraju, pa uspijeva od govna film se pretvoriti u finu komedijicu.
