What Happens in Vegas is a painfully unfunny and tediously unromantic romantic comedy.
Director Tom Vaughn had the necessary ingredients for a cute, sparkling film.
The leads Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher are attractive and the premise reasonably promising ? a man and woman, who are polar opposites, find themselves married to each other after a night of debauchery in Las Vegas.
They are about to go in for a divorce when they win three million at the slot machine.
A judge decrees that they must give marriage a shot for six months before they get their hands on the money. This could have been a fun battle of wits.
Instead it becomes a bitter and sour contest to see who quits first. So he pees into the sink and she annoyingly tries to get him to cheat on her.
None of this is very much fun. At one point, the judge looks at this quarreling, spoilt couple and declares: I don't like you. I don't like any of you.
He took the words right out of my mouth. What Happens in Vegas is Hollywood at its formulaic worst. Rent Diaz?s There?s Something About Mary Instead.
