WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS

Movie Review

Directed by Tom Vaughan
Starring Cameron Diaz, Ashton Kutcher
Review by Eli Manning



SYNOPSIS:

Set in Sin City, story revolves around two people who discover they've gotten married following a night of debauchery.

REVIEW:

The most interesting thing about What Happens in Vegas is that not much really happens in Vegas. In fact, it's more about what happens in New York City to two people you have a hard time really caring about.

If you take a Learning Annex course on screenplay writing, they will hand out sheets to you on what is needed to write a professional script. And this is the kind of screenplay they're talking about. It's filled with so many cliches and formulas, you know exactly what will happen far before it even happens. It follows the Learning Annex formula, but it forgets to actually add anything at all that we might of not seen before.

Go on the internet and find the screenplays for last week's Made of Honor, What Happens in Vegas and the film How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Print them out and go from page to page to page on each script and you will see that the same jokes, plot points and conflicts happen at the same times on all three scripts.

The only way we can stop the Hollywood recycling is to stop going to see these terrible films. Then they'll get the hint that we want something new.

A man (Ashton Kutcher), and a woman (Cameron Diaz) like each other, then hate each other, then like each other again and fall in love. You know exactly what's going to happen, so you just hope you'll laugh and be entertained while it happens. But this film fails doing so on both fronts.

First off, these characters are people who are just not real human beings. I would say that they act like children, but children don't even act this badly. A simple mature adult would handle their conflicts a little wiser, especially if you're suppose to be the characters that these characters are actually playing.

I understand that this is a comedy and we're suppose to be watching it for the laughs and therefore a little craziness needs to happen. But this is what you call cheap humor. Cheap meaning that's its lazy humor and I think we're all sick of laziness in the world. All I ask if that they at least try to give us something original.

And poor Cameron Diaz. She obviously has screen presence and comedic timing but she's limited by the poor screenplay she's working with and the absolute terrible Ashton Kutcher, who's playing her leading man. I don't really like calling out an artist like this because I know they are trying, but he is just plain bad in this film. He's just not ready to play a role like this. Kutcher is in that position where he got too successful too fast. Most actors have to work their way up to leading man status by working with other leading men in supporting roles. They need to be mentored. But Kutcher is trapped in present day society's madness of being successful for dating the right person. He isn't ready to carry a film like he's been hired to do in this film. He wasn't the main character on his TV show (That 70's Show), as he played the one note (but funny) sidekick. So why would they think he could do it in a 100 minute major motion picture?

So all the way around this is a bad film. Let's hope it's gone from the cinemas in a week because I don't want it to steal people's money.

1/2 star out of 4!
