So, it didn’t have anything to do with religion and it had even less to do with South Park but What Happens in Vegas was definitely adorable. It was a love story but not chick-flicky until the last 90 seconds. It was filled with crude and distasteful jokes – my favorite kind of joke – and had a number of good belly-laughable moments throughout.
Quite frankly, I don’t think that Cameron Diaz is all that hot. I never really have. She’s a pretty girl, don’t get me wrong but not the hot that everyone thinks. She has a boxy stomach and it looks like she’s desperately fighting wrinkles. That said, looks aren’t everything (though they’re working for her, apparently) and she is – sometimes surprisingly – a good actress. I really enjoyed her performance. While the same can’t be said of Ashton Kutcher (the good actor part) he certainly does what works so props to them both. The supporting cast was also good all around.
So, I laughed, I giggled, I cringed once or twice perhaps, and I thought it was enjoyable until the end. If you see it, don’t forget to stick around for the few pop-up scenes that we get during the credits. Both are amusing. Have you seen it? What did you think?
