    A first- or second-date flick, after which there can be some Cheesecake Factory and maybe a peck on the cheek, no harm done. What Happens in Vegas is pleasant enough for all of that (and it sidesteps all that "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" raunch).

  • Stephen Hunter

    An exceedingly bright comedy that never makes you feel stupid for enjoying its brisk pacing, smart lines, sound construction and superb comic acting, not only from Ashton Kutcher but from Cameron Diaz and well-chosen No. 2 bananas Rob Corddry and Lake Bell.

  • Andrea Gronvall

    Amiable screwball comedy.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Kutcher, who gives his most energized performance to date, and Diaz, darting between the caustic and shrill, look as if they're warming up to groovy hate sex, not love, which may be why the film goes flat the moment it turns friendly.

    Their chemistry goes like this: He cleans up real nice; she dirties down with gusto.

    Sadly, about the nicest thing I can say about What Happens in Vegas is that I didn't hate it - although I suppose that's something.

    The stars, despite having only a fraction of the charm and talent of classic sparring-but-meant-for-each-other duos, know how to mug for the camera and well up on cue, and somehow that turns out to be enough to carry this trifle.

  • Carina Chocano

    Hokey and forced as it is, What Happens in Vegas eventually settles into a rhythm, maybe because Diaz and Kutcher actually look like they have fun together.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    This two-seated star vehicle for top-billed Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz wrings a respectable number of laughs from a formulaic scenario about attracted-opposites who bicker and back-stab their way toward happily-ever-aftering.

  • Connie Ogle

    The overwhelming sensation of deja vu is exhausting and disorienting. You really HAVE seen it all before.

  • Ken Fox

    Cameron Diaz is the ideal guy's gal and Ashton Kutcher is, well, a guy. Together, they're a zero.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It's a story that feels familiar at best, hackneyed at worst, which is surprising and disappointing, as director Tom Vaughan also made last year's "Starter for 10," a charming British coming-of-age comedy.

    Complain all you want about the affable slobs in Judd Apatow comedies; at least they're not tools.

  • M. E. Russell

    After the initial charm wears off, the whole thing gets check-your-text-messages dull.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    While Diaz and Kutcher make their clichéd characters as likable as possible, you can bet on this: Any movie named after an already-stale ad campaign isn't likely to gamble on the unexpected.

    Bland enough to make millions as culture edges closer to oblivion.

    Empire Full Review
  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    As it is, it's too restrained, too often -- too eager to gallop toward postcard sunsets on the beach when tequila shooters and lap dances are what the moment calls for. You'd think the combination of Diaz, Kutcher and Vegas would be good for at least a little sexy, silly fun. But don't bet on it. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    If you don't see where this is going, you've never seen a movie. Sorry it had to be this one.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The screenplay by Dana Fox (she was one of the rewriters of "27 Dresses") devolves into a series of humiliating pranks that always give the upper narrative hand to the male lead. Talk about depressing. I mean, that's what male screenwriters are for--to unfairly stack the deck against the female leads.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Laughs are few and far between in the innuendo-laden script attributed to Dana Fox, who's also responsible for the reprehensible "The Wedding Date."

    What Happens in Vegas should damn well have stayed in Vegas.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    What Happens in Vegas is not only annoying, it's also incompetent – a bad mix.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Only Diaz shows spark because the actress knows how to simultaneously play nice and be a nasty character, thereby gaining audience sympathy. Everyone else hits one note, and it isn't nice.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Who wants to spend a minute on the Strip with the chance that there might be people as annoying as the characters played by Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher walking around?

    When it was over I felt vaguely embarrassed. I wasn't just leaving a movie theater. I was taking a walk of shame.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    The one actor I wanted more of was Williams, who imbues Jack's dad with a robust, sometimes domineering wiliness that suggests a real person. Of course, these silly, inept filmmakers probably cast him because he plays a good guy and his first name is Treat.

  • Pete Vonder Haar

    If What Happens in Vegas... serves any purpose, it's to make me consider spending my gambling money in Reno or on a riverboat instead.

  • Kimberley Jones

    If you're gonna hire one of the funniest American comedians working today – Zach Galifianakis – and shove him to the side of the frame, then frankly, you can take what happens in Vegas, keep it in Vegas, and keep the rest of the us out of it.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Because its director, Tom Vaughan, brings nothing of interest to the movie, including filmmaking, there isn't anything to say other than to note its insulting ugliness and ineptitude.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Schickel

    Worst-in-breed not only for this year, but very likely in living memory.

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    What Happens in Vegas... should have stayed in development -- forever. This ramshackle -- and occasionally repulsive -- farce doesn't even deliver on the minimal promise of its title; most of it takes place in Manhattan.
