What Happens in Vegas
Two strangers (Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher) find themselves hitched after a wild night of Las Vegas shenanigans in this 20th Century Fox comedy. Jack Fuller (Kutcher) is a single Manhattanite who can never quite commit to a permanent, long-term relationship and repeatedly hears from his lovers that he "isn't serious boyfriend material." Employed by his father (Treat Williams) at a local furniture business, Jack spends his workdays goofing off by watching sporting events behind dad's back. Joy McNally (Diaz) is faring slightly better; a young, polished urbanite, she… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The screenplay is awful, the direction is bland and the performances are beyond redemption."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"What Happens in Vegas refuses to take a gamble. Like a bleary-eyed gambler repeatedly tossing a pair of dice, it tiredly goes through the motions."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"a funny movie about the sexes that doesn't diminish either gender in its execution--a tougher task, obviously, than one would presume."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"As far fetched as the idea of guy disgust as the ultimate aphrodisiac may seem, Cameron and Ashton as the designated lovebirds keep the kinky marriage shocks and surprises coming. Move over Knocked Up. A Sex And The Sin City Vegas jackpot."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"I only wish they'd have spent more time drunk and in Vegas in the whole movie. Alas..."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"What Happens in Vegas contains enough unbridled silliness to salvage its lowbrow high concept."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"Here's a romantic comedy that is goofy, highly implausible, sometimes over the top, often in bad taste, and resolutely empty-headed. In short, it's the best example of its genre to appear on the screen this year."
‑ Philip Marchand, Toronto Star
"What Happens in Vegas has mediocre direction and a strained screenplay, so how can it be any good? What carries the film is its two stars. If Ashton Kutcher bothers you, you'll probably hate What Happens in Vegas. If Cameron Diaz leaves you"
‑ Tony Macklin, Fayetteville Free Weekly
"This derivative rom-com works best when the leads are exacting revenge on each other."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"From seeing this movie and talking to several moviegoers, I discovered that there are two kinds of people: people who like Ashton Kutcher, and people who don't."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"What Happens in Vegas... should have stayed in development -- forever. This ramshackle -- and occasionally repulsive -- farce doesn't even deliver on the minimal promise of its title; most of it takes place in Manhattan."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Why do we have to suffer through movies like What Happens in Vegas, which is the worst-in-breed not only for this year, but very likely in living memory."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Another predictable romantic comedy, one that insists that spending time locked into an unhappy marriage doesn't breed contempt, but sows love. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"The combined verve Diaz and Kutcher bring to the table saves a routine time-killer from being entirely forgettable."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
"Should have stayed, not in Vegas, but elsewhere in the state of Nevada. How about those mountains where they are supposed to store the radioactive waste?"
‑ Kyle Smith, KyleSmithOnline.com
