What Happens in Vegas (2008)


Comedy, Romance |

What Happens in Vegas is a American romantic comedy film directed by Tom Vaughan, written by Dana Fox, and starring Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher. The title is based on the Las Vegas marketing catchphrase “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”.

In New York City, high-strung equity trader Joy Ellis McNally is dumped by her fiancé at a surprise birthday party she throws for him. At the same time, easy-going carpenter Jack Fuller is fired from his job by his father, Jack Sr. Both become emotionally distraught and, with best friends Toni “Tipper” who’s a bartender, and Jeff “Hater”, a lawyer, take a debauched trip to Las Vegas.

Joy and Jack meet by chance when they are given the same hotel room because of a computer error. After clearing up the misunderstanding and receiving upgraded rooms and coupons to various clubs, they party and drink together and end up getting married. The next morning, they realize it was a mistake and decide to divorce.

Before they do so, Jack uses a quarter Joy gives him in a slot machine. He hits a three million dollar jackpot and Joy reminds Jack that they are married and hence, she is entitled to half of the money. The couple return to New York, where they attempt to divorce.
