What Happens in Vegas (2008) : Cameron Diaz

Source: DVD (SS2)
Surprisingly enjoyable, and feel the sizzle of the chemistry between two of Hollywood's most beautiful stars!

Cameron Diaz ... Joy McNally
Ashton Kutcher ... Jack Fuller
Lake Bell ... Tipper
Michelle Krusiec ... Chong
Dennis Farina ... Richard Banger
Queen Latifah ... Dr. Twitchell

Not surprisingly, as the title implies, this romantic comedy is set in Las Vegas aka Sin City. It is about a career woman / one who plans her plans (!) Joy McNally (Diaz), and the goofy Jack Fuller (Kuctcher) who meet and get married in Vegas, win 3 million dollars on the slots, and decide to get divorced.
It is then that the judge (Oddly enough, similar to another recent film Big Stan ) decrees that the money is frozen, and that they must remain married for 6 months in order to share the money but only if they prove that they can remain married whilst undergoing counseling sessions. Soon they both learn that if one of them asks to get out of the marriage, the other will get the money.. What do they do? Obviously, they each try to drive the other to want to get out of the marriage!

Couple of memorable quotes ...

Jack Fuller Sr.: You're like a son to me.
Jack Fuller: Dad, I am your son.

Jack Fuller: Richard Banger? So your name is Dick Banger! Dick Banger!
Banger: And yours is Jack? Jack off! Jack off

Predictable storyline aside, it was such a fun movie to watch! I loved the chem between the lead. Nice!
