Their chemistry goes like this: He cleans up real nice; she dirties down with gusto.

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.

It's a story that feels familiar at best, hackneyed at worst, which is surprising and disappointing, as director Tom Vaughan also made last...

While Diaz and Kutcher make their clichéd characters as likable as possible, you can bet on this: Any movie named after an already-stale ad...

If you don't see where this is going, you've never seen a movie. Sorry it had to be this one.

When it was over I felt vaguely embarrassed. I wasn't just leaving a movie theater. I was taking a walk of shame.

I went to see this movie with my best friend and we were both in tears from laughing so much. The momentum remained throughout the entire movie. We saw the sneak peek show, but plan to go back...

Predictable but good

By RandytheMovieFan
You knew exactly where the movie was going but it was filled with fun scenes and a supporting cast who really helped carry the movie at times. Romantic comedies make good date movies and this one...

I loved it! I thought it was great, and I want to go to Vegas again now....

Very funny... A must see!!

By jessierican
My Fiance and I had an opportunity to watch a special screening of the movie at ShoWest in Las Vegas and we enjoyed it very much. THIS IS NOT A CHICK FLICK!! I would recommend this as a date movie....

Predictable but watchable

due to the performances of the stars, esp Ashton Kucher. His ability to keep me watching a formulaic "comedy" proves that he deserves better. If he ever gets a decent script, watch out....

Pretty Good Movie

By bbar64
Very well done. Supporting characters are what really make it good....

The movie is made up of lots of individual shots that make up the whole story. Feels a bit incoherent. Good for Cameron Diaz fans, however....

Entertaining but just barely

By Jim1234
A little funny but predictable. Overall I'd wait for the dvd...
