If the ending to all the movies you see are lacking, maybe they are not the best (insert genre here) movie of the year.
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

I rewatched the movie recently on HBO, and I have to say that while the premise was mediocre, the dialogue was awful.  Just about every one-liner fell completely flat. Here's an example:

Diaz: Why didn't you intervene when you saw I was getting drunk?[something along those lines]
Best Friend who I think was named "Tipper": I kind of threw up in my purse.

Seriously? what kind of response is that? It's not funny, nor does it make any sense. It's as if there were no script and the actress had to think up that line out of thin air. That's just one of many MANY lines I can recall off the top of my head that degrade the tepid careers of everyone involved. If it weren't for Diaz and Kutcher, this film would have never been released. They as well as everyone involved should be embarrassed for agreeing to star in this debacle.

Thanks for the catch, I had email notifications of the What Happens in Vegas forum, so I clicked the link to one of them assuming it was for the same movie. My mistake.

I just re-watched it. I don't know why I praised the comedy so much when I first posted. This time, I smiled a few times and that was it. And I don't think it's because of the "You feel different about movies when you grow up" rule, because: A) I saw it just 4 years ago, and my taste couldn't have changed that much. B) I didn't tell myself "Look at this in a more critical way than you did before". Regardless of the reason, I hated it this time.

OK, so this guy TOM realizes he's in love with his best friend HANNAH, and when he's about to tell her, she reveals she's engaged to another man. It's a terrible situation (I know because something similar has happened to me), but there are ways to deal with it, and TOM doesn't do it. There's a huge difference between TOM making HANNAH see that he's the right man for her (which is what he says he's doing), and, him making her think that her fiancée is wrong for her (which is what he does). So it's hard to root for him. At least Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan's performances are OK and they have very good chemistry.

When I first posted I complained about the ending, but I didn't say why. It wasn't because it was predictable (we all knew what was going to happen), but because it was phony. And I still think that way. I mean, they kiss in the church in front of the fiancée and she gives him a half-assed excuse, and he accepts it! And I felt bad for him because he never did anything wrong. Also, in what world is refusing to share food a good reason to think that someone is wrong for you?

There's also the clichés. I didn't care that they were used; I cared that they used the most basic ones. And that I've seen parodies made before this movie that made fun of those clichés. Mainly, the wedding interruption. But that wasn't enough. They had to make TOM ride a f*ck*ng horse to the wedding!

I give it a 1/10 (could've been 0).
