Two people go to Vegas, have some sex and then decide that they can’t be together. After winning three million dollars by accident, they are forced to stay together and try and figure it all out — that is, not without some help from a judge, played by Dennis Miller. Yes, you read that right. Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz star as the two strangers, who awaken together to discover they’ve gotten married following a night of debauchery in Sin City, and one of them has won a huge jackpot after playing the other’s quarter. The newlyweds devise ever-escalating schemes to undermine each other and get their hands on the money – only to find themselves falling in love amid the mutual backstabbing.
Take a look at the new trailer below.

Now, I don’t know about you but this one feels like the same contrived, rehashed story that we’ve seen time and time again. It is a lot like the Pierce Brosnan, Julianne Moore movie Laws of Attraction, only this time the adventure starts with a drunken night in Vegas. And instead of two lawyers, we get to down-on-their-luck average Joe’s who win $3 million on a whim. I can imagine that this might deliver some solid comedic moments, but I won’t be expecting much. In fact, I will be expecting no more than what we got the last time Ashton Kutcher was in a movie like this, as in: Just Married, My Boss’s Daughter or even Guess Who. Needless to say, I won’t be expecting much.
What Happens in Vegas… is directed by Tom Vaughan (Starter for 10) and will also star Queen Latifah, Zach Galifianakis, Dennis Farina, Lake Bell and Rob Corddry. 20th Century Fox will release it on May 9th.
