What happens in Vegas? A whole lot of fun and weddings around the clock. Also if you want to keep it personal and quite they accommodate that too. When a sexy young couple fly there for a fun evening Vegas only knows what will happen because it stays there!. The two just happen to be drunk and stupid and wind up sharing the same room by mistake. Even though the newly hitched couple return home to New York City and go about dissolving their mistaken union it becomes clear there is some chemistry between this couple. In the case of Joy McNally (Cameron Diaz from Gangs of New York, Vanilla Sky) and Jack Fuller (Ashton Kutcher from Punkíd, Two and a Half Men) they actually hate each other even though they didnít act like it the night they wed! The couple knows they must go their separate ways but when Jack puts a quarter into a slot machine magic happens and they win a million bucks!
They go see Judge Whopper (Denis Miller from Judgment Night, The Denis Miller Show) about divorcing but he decides they need to work things out before they can split their winnings, which of course they eventually do. Itís predictable but so much fun watching these two young actors straighten out their differences (and discover they are actually in love) that itís well worth watching!

I got a kick out of this. Typical plot, but the actors made it good. It was light and good for a few laughs.

"Okay, so sue me; I laughed a lot while watching this movie. My wife said that the film was horribly stupid but I didn't care. Sure, it was predictable beyond belief but why would you expect anything but a predictable romantic comedy? I mean, yes, at times the humor was a little off color or just plain ridiculous, but in a world embracing the comedic genius that is Judd Apatow (don't get me wrong, this is no where near as good as an Apatow production) why would you get mad over that?
`What Happens in Vegas' is exactly what you'd expect from a comedy starring Aston Kutcher.
The film tells the story of control freak Joy and slacker Jack. Joy was just dumped by her fiancé and Jack was just fired by his own father. When all goes wrong the only viable option is to go crazy in Vegas, so that is what they decide to do. It is in Vegas where they meet and get drunk and get hitched only to wake up desperate to end their relationship; that is until Jack wins $3,000,000 with Joy's quarter and each wants the cash. What happens next is highly unlikely (very highly) but for the sake of the film we'll follow along. A judge sentences them to a half year of marriage before either of them can be awarded the money. Jack and Joy are thus forced to live together and `work on their marriage' in order to attain the cast they so desperately desire.
The pot shots taken are over-the-top at times, but funny none-the-less. The situation is more preposterous than any of the jokes, and the actions taken by the two main characters, as immature as they are, are believable when you take into context the nature of the characters they are playing.
I mean seriously, a lot of people are that stupid.
Cameron Diaz is above this, I will say that. She is a wonderfully talented comedic actress who deserves better than the material she is provided here. Her performances in films like `Vanilla Sky' and `Being John Malkovich' and even `My Best Friends Wedding' all prove her talent and should have garnered an Oscar nomination by now. Instead she is reduced to starring alongside Aston Kutcher in a film tailor made for his persona as apposed to her talent. This is not above Kutcher, in fact it is a step up for him (look at what he's done up until now). Honestly, if you are looking at this film because you are a fan of Kutcher then you have nothing to complain about since this is undeniably one of his better films. If you are watching this because you are a fan of Diaz then you may have reason to be bitter since this may be the worst film she's ever done.
Forget them for a minute though, because the real stars of this film are Rob Corddry and Lake Bell who play Hater and Tipper, the happy couples best friends. These two have such a brilliant love/hate chemistry that is seriously the funniest part of the film.
In the end I can't say that this is a great movie or one that I would highly recommend, but if you are a fan of the genre or the films male lead then you already know what to expect and you most likely will enjoy this film to an extent. If you are not a fan of either then you should really be looking elsewhere. Regardless, look at it for what it is and you will find something enjoyable about the whole experience."

"This is the best kind of comedy you can make. Nothing far-fetched just people being people with hilarious humor and not over-the-top romance. It is a little cliche and predictable but what movie isnt. I could watch this over and over again."
With two beers it's better

"This is a funny "no brainer" movie with a sweet ending. You don't have to think about the plot, it is very predictable. Just relax and enjoy the slap stick humor. This is a good movie to watch after a hard day of work with a couple beers and some popcorn. It will make you laugh and you don't have to bring your brain. This would be a great first date movie too."
