What Happens in Vegas

People around me actually laughed at a preview screening of this alleged romantic farce. I couldn't join in. I kept seeing the strain on the faces of Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher, playing New York strangers who meet and marry in Vegas — it's the booze — and find their annulment delayed when he hits a $3 million jackpot on the slots using her quarter. If you don't see where this is going, you've never seen a movie. Sorry it had to be this one.
