Why is this one of my favorite rom-coms?
Verified purchase
I really have to level with you. I love a good love story. And I love a laugh-inducing comedy. Out of the plethora of movies that check those boxes, why is this one of my favorites? I don't even like Las Vegas or dream of winning $3 million. I don't particularly relate to either of the main characters and their life situations. The premise as other reviewers mention is highly implausible. AND YET. It's so gosh darn enjoyable to watch. There are parts of this movie in particular that I found truly funny, not just slap-stick or run of the mill dumb comedy antics. And the movie turns out to have real heart in it. I enjoyed watching these two characters fall for each other, and the lessons they learned along the way. Dare I say that the storyline tickles me?! YES! It does indeed! Each time I watch it. So yes! This is a rom-com! And yes! It is unrealistic! But for me, it is a truly funny movie that makes me smile all the way to my toes. Thank you to Las Vegas, the actors, and the movie gods for making this film happen! You've got my sincere thanks.

Not Quite What You Think...
Verified purchase
Who hasn't heard the phrase "What happens in Vegas...stays in Vegas"? Well, this film doesn't stick quite to that phrase despite its title being the first half of it. It brings what happens in Vegas to New York. Meeting thanks to a hotel screw-up, Joy McNally, played by Cameron Diaz, Jack Fuller, played by Ashton Kutcher, Toni "Tipper" Saxson, played by Lake Bell, and Jeffrey "Hater" Lewis, played by Rob Corddry, meet up and decide to have some fun together. Within the drunken debauchery, Joy and Jack, the film's main characters, end up married and regret it during their "hangovers" the next morning. In an attempt to get an amicable divorce, they wind up fighting over a three million jackpot Jack won with a quarter Joy gave him. A judge back in New York, played by Dennis Miller, decides that, before he will consider the idea of a divorce and the splitting of the "marital assets", the couple has to try to make their marriage work, with a marriage counselor, played by Queen Latifah. From there, hijinks ensue as each tries to outdo the other, along with their totally biased friends, "Tipper" and "Hater", so they can keep the full jackpot. Okay, legal inaccuracies aside, and this film has more of those than an episode of Law and Order, this was pretty good. All the characters were well cast and quite funny, though I'd have liked to see more of Lake Bell as she was my favorite...how'd her character get the nickname "Tipper" anyway? I think the actors were actually drunk for some of the wild Vegas scenes and I do wish the crew had gotten shots of the real-life hangovers the next day. Overall, the premise is amusing (surely it's happened in real life at one of those Vegas wedding chapels), the jokes are never overdone and the film instead lets the situation bring out the funny as a good comedy should. Despite me not being a big fan of either lead and knowing even less about them, I thought they were worth watching. And I was pleasantly surprised to see Dennis Farina in this film. I didn't know he did comedy...he did pretty well here. I'll just end things now by stamping my positive recommendations onto the film. Enjoy.

A great comedy for all ages, one of my favorite despite when it was made! Cameron and Ashton have wonderful chemistry in this movie, and there's a great life lesson to be learned from this movie. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a few laughs and a good storyline!

Fabulous actors prodigious story line!
Verified purchase
This was not what I expected. Seven actors actually played major roles and were hilarious. You will want to watch it more than once because you’ll end up with a real warm and fuzzy feeling after watching the movie. There is some great cheap shots and counter cheap shots, you will laugh until your sides hurt.

Not sure if I would watch again, but it was ok.
Verified purchase
Pretty predictable, but it has its moments. Ashton Kutcher plays the usual role, Cameron Diaz looks good and acts bad as always, Rob Corddry is hilarious in a secondary role as Kutcher's bumbling lawyer friend and the very attractive Lake Bell provides some more wit as Diaz best friend. It wasn't that bad, but wasn't that good enough for me to really consider rewatching.

Great movie! I loved how it refrained from typical swearing and sexual scenes. I really enjoyed it and it had very little swearing and no sexual scenes. I prefer wholesome entertainment and I was pleasantly surprised with this chic flick winner.

This is a pretty cute movie
Verified purchase
This is a pretty cute movie. Although the premise is implausible--two people getting drunk, getting married in Vegas while drunk, then awakening to find they don't like each other, and THEN one of them suddenly wins $3,000,000 on the slot machines with the other one's quarter. When they try to get a divorce and split up the money, the judge sentences them to stay married for awhile first. And of course, as with all romantic comedies, there is a happy ending eventually, but in the meantime there is a lot of spiteful joke-playing and some great lines. All in all, it was fun. Not sure I would watch it twice, hence the 4 stars, but it has enough laughs to make it worth the view.

My wife and grandson had just tried to watch this movie on regular TV. They were frustrated and found it hard to follow since it was so choppy and the commercial breaks so frequent and long. They were happy to get it on Prime and watch the whole movie uninterrupted.
