What Happens In Vegas

Mom and I went to see What Happens in Vegas this weekend. I just checked the reviews and was shocked to see that most of them were negative. I guess it just goes to show; once again, if they hate it....I'll love it.

Again, this is romantic comedy that stars Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz so one shouldn't go with expectations of anything more than a fun movie with lots of laughter. And the good news is, it's not too girly so the guys will enjoy it too.

New Yorkers Joy (Diaz) and Jack (Kutcher) meet in Las Vegas, get seriously drunk and, end up married. The morning after, Jack plays a slot with Joy's quarter and wins big.

Back home, a cantankerous judge (Dennis Miller) sentences the couple to "six months hard marriage" before they can collect the fortune. YIKES!!

Six months hard marriage between a couple who met in Vegas and ended up married and you can probably guess what happens next.....a couple of hundred fights.

Both Diaz, with her gangly charm, and Kutcher, the lovable goof, fit perfectly into this breezy, occasionally tasteless, mostly enjoyable comedy.

Shannon and I want to see this one too!
I love both actors.
"Just Married" with Ashton was hystercal! We quote from that movie all the time.:)

Have a lovely day!

Okay, I misspelled "hysterical" in my first comment. Having now spelled it correctly, I feel much better. :)

I'm going to have to remember to check this blog! I saw the icky reviews for this and Made of Honor, and I had wondered if it was good according to real people standards. :)

romantic comedies starring Ashton Kutcher tend to be good, he seems to have a knack for them... A Lot Like Love is another example
