Random two people meet up in Vegas and have a great night and then morning came. They didn’t have such a great morning and with a disagreement, a quarter and a check the movie has them off into the marriage weirdness that is quirky and odd in a meh kind of way. Happens in Vegas.

It is very much like I was watching a Just Married II, with the addition (un-uniquely) of a million dollars, than a movie that was called Happens in Vegas. Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz are hot apart as well as hot together and they work. Their chemistry rocks and their anger rocks and them being together in a film just rocks. The story stinks, though. There were funny moments when they were getting each other back because they had to live together for six months to make their marriage work.

I have a problem with movies like this because they seemingly always have friends that are just rotten. I have had rotten friends before and it’s just not worth having. It would be nice if a movie can come along that will actually have friends that are that; friends. This need to be so vile and devil like to ‘win’ the day is just lame.

I saw this movie last weekend but it was so much like Just Married I was not at all motivated to write a review. I’m still unmotivated as you have read through this, but I try. I won’t buy it. It was alright but, as I stated, the story stunk because they just rehashed an idea that wasn’t even that old. I can’t bare to think of what crap we are up for if this is something that wins the box office for the movies that open. And according to what I saw it still raked in more money. People have short term memory loss or something.

Just Married II ….Happens in Vegas, I mean, is a movie I don’t really want to see again. I don’t want to own it. I would recommend it if you have nothing better to do and you want to snicker and you have money for gas and the ticket. Otherwise just watch Just Married and you’ll see a better movie instead. I mean you can rent it from that red box or Netflix or On Demand and it would be far cheaper.

i thought there was really good chemistry between Diaz and Kutcher in What Happens in Vegas, though at first they seemed to act like brother and sister; they even look alike...
