Product Overview

After the wildest party night of their lives, two mismatched strangers, Jack (Ashton Kutcher) and Joy (Cameron Diaz), wake up in Vegas to discover they not only got lucky -- they got married! The road to annulment takes a hilarious turn after Jack wins a three-million-dollar jackpot while playing Joy's quarter and a no-nonsense judge (Dennis Miller) sentences them to six months "hard marriage." What follows is an all-out war of the sexes as Jack and Joy go to outrageous lengths to try and cheat each other out of the money. But in the end, they may learn that when you gamble on love, you just might win, against all odds!

Review The battle for the human heart has officially morphed from witty, sophisticated banter between star-crossed lovers to something akin to mixed martial arts. Or, in the case of the new Ashton Kutcher/Cameron Diaz rom-com What Happens in Vegas..., dull marital artifice. In this cloying, created-by-committee exercise in screaming and facial mugging, personal humanity is reduced down to five or six of the seven deadly sins, particularly greed, sloth, and...no wait, that's about it. As a result, we witness gender dynamics as primitive pandering...Wrapping 197 plots into a single, sloppy narrative, What Happens in Vegas... is almost painful to watch. It's a decent romance rigged to a hideously unfunny comedy. Bouncing wildly between farce and calculated coupling insights, our characters exist in a world where men are pigs, women are manipulative shrews, and somewhere in between exist a sprinkling of skanks, dipsticks, and sexually inappropriate bosses. The script, by Wedding Date scribe Dana Fox, contains so many flaws that you wonder what's holding it all together. It clearly isn't the pedestrian, music-montage-heavy direction from Tom Vaughn...Somewhere buried in this staid, stereotypical excuse for a likeable lover's spat is a decent idea for a movie. Since all involved can't find it, it's up to the audience. They'll be lost as well.

Review What Happens in Vegas takes the "thin line between love and hate" approach to the romantic comedy...In this case, director Tom Vaughan starts his protagonists out as if they're in The War of the Roses but concludes with them in the grip of emotions that make it impossible to live without one another. The film's misstep - and it is a significant one - is to take too long to tone down the broad, cartoonish portrayals of the leads into something resembling human beings. As a result, the first half of What Happens in Vegas plays like shrill sit-com material...In the romantic comedy genre, What Happens in Vegas is forgettable. Years from now, no one will remember it and mentions of the title will draw blank stares. It's not bad enough to sting like an infected insect bite and it's not good enough to make its way to home video libraries. The movie has one thing going for it when it comes to regurgitating the expected formula: it never introduces any serious "romantic complications"...Diaz and Kutcher work well enough together that this isn't an unwelcome development, especially once the movie disposes with its over-the-top attempts at outrageousness and starts getting us to care about their characters. Sadly, about the nicest thing I can say about What Happens in Vegas is that I didn't hate it - although I suppose that's something.

Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader Amiable screwball comedy.
Armond White, New York Press Diaz and Kutcher restore the original, ebullient meaning of 'sex comedy'. They're fun to watch...
Matthew Turner, ViewLondon ...delivers more than its fair share of laughs, thanks to terrific comic performances from Kutcher, Diaz and supporting players Rob Corddry and Lake Bell.
Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze Move over Knocked Up. [What Happens in Vegas is a] Sex And The Sin City Vegas jackpot.
