http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=277&PN=1 - WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS DOES ACHIEVE ONE MOVIE FIRST: IT'S THE FIRST MOVIE WHOSE TITLE IS BASED on an AD SLOGAN for a TOURIST ATTRACTION. IT'S CERTAINLY NOT the FIRST TRULY AWFUL MOVIE SET in VEGAS SINCE http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114436/awards - SHOWGIRLS -- BUT IT LOOKS NEARLY as DENSE as THAT 1995 RAZZIE® CLASSIC.

STARRING TWO "ACTORS" WHOSE CAREERS ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY ABOUT THEIR LOOKS, http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=2683&PN=1 - WHAT HAPPENS ALSO HAPPENS to HAVE ONE of the MOST IRKSOME AD CAMPAIGNS in RECENT MEMORY: IF AUDIENCES DO FLOCK to THIS ONE, HOLLYWOOD's NOTION THAT MOVIE-GOERS DESERVE the CRAP THAT THEY'VE BEEN SPOON-FEEDING US of LATE MAY BE JUSTIFIED. 

NOW, PUT YOUR MOUTH WHERE the MONEY IS, and POST YOUR THOUGHTS BELOW...

KUTCHER, 3 MONTHS from NOW: "Oh, my God, remember that sh*tty movie we made in Vegas? It's already available on Pay-Per-View!"

This looks awful! Ass-ton Kutcher is one of the most annoying people alive, and Cameron Diaz is savagely over-rated...

Zach Galifianakis is in this movie, which makes me really want to like it. Yet, it just looks so hopeless. I feel that I cannot bust on this one appropriately because of my fondness for this cast member.

Let's not forget the fabulous Queen Latifah, who should be safe (even though she was in "Mad Money").

I've seen trailers and it looks like an absolute mess. Whenever you see Ashton Kutcher's in a movie, you know that it's not going to be any good!

The One constant in our little Razzie Universe! Although it looks like Speed Racer may tie with it, at this point Vegas is getting slightly better reviews than Speed Racer.

My prediction is to look for Iron Man taking the #1 slot again this weekend by a respectable distance between Speed Racer and way ahead of Vegas!

Awful looking? It looks hilariously entertaining! 2 great and funny actors? Put them together and you get a very funny film (hopefully)!

Here's a WTF moment: W.H.I.V. currently has a rating of 70% (Fresh) on RT!  It's only based on 10 reviews though, so things could change.

But http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=279 - Speed Racer definitely deserves the page it got here.

One thing I find oft galling is how Hollywood, through productions like this, seems to encourage shallow relationships among its viewers, urging them to think it's fun to have spats because you can't agree with anything your other says.  In the REAL real world, there's little if anything amusing (or even entertaining) about a broken, meaningless relationship.  Marriage is meant to be fulfilling, meant to be forever.  And they are telling future generations, through this kind of material, that such a sacred union is cheap, useless and not to be taken with any solemnity at all...

Well at this point it has a 64% Fresh Rating at http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10008760-what_happens_in_vegas/ - RT , but with it have only 14 reviews thus far that can easily change buy Friday. Also the reviews that they give as fresh do not seem all that flattering , Anyways it looks like SPeedracer is going to take the crown as worst new offering as of right now (24% currently at http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/speed_racer/ - RT ).

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10008760-what_happens_in_vegas/ - With 39 reviews, WHIV is now back down to 36% rotten .  Not quite as low as it should be, but it's on par with a number of the movies we're considering this year.

Well at this point this has a 28% Rating at http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10008760-what_happens_in_vegas/ - RT , So it should slightly be above Speed Racer. This should be no big surprise -- unless of course you're MovieWizGuy and you think the industry is purposely alienating Ashton and Cameron.

Further, I may add, what sane judge would actually try a "6 months hard marriage" proposal?  If two people have made it quite clear they don't wish to be together, it's the judiciary's job to respect their wishes, not force something out of literally nothing.  And when money is the only motivating factor keeping it alive--meaning that any "blossoming of true romance" will be patently false to viewers in every single respect--it clearly does not deserve to be a meaningful relationship.

WOW! Roeper and Whatz-Hiz-Face ripped this a new one on their show this weekend -- Sounds like "Vegas" is a much stronger Razzie contender than "Speed Racer," which those two guys were among the few to actually praise...

OK!!!! I couldn't disagree with you more. I've enjoyed the humor in the movies both of them have played in, and That 70s Show, I mean, c'mon ... does it get any more entertaining????

This was actually worse than "Showgirls". And "Meet The Spartans"! At least "Spartans" had Dane Cook getting pushed into the pit of death. This one had NO laughs whatsoever. Ass-face was increadibly retarded. In one scene, to piss off Cameron Biotch, he takes the seat of the toilet. Hey genius, where are you gonna sh*t now? Oh wait, I forgot he took it in the script. Biotch has never looked so ugly than in this movie! And every single character says she's beautiful. Liars! Lake Bell was very grating in this. Not even Rob Cordrey can overcome the sheer awfulness of this. Dennis Miller was painful as the judge and I'm not even sure that what he did was even legal! Dennis Farina plays a guy named Dick Banger. Yes, they actually call him Dick Banger.

Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Supporting Actor (Cordrey -- also for "Semi-Pro"), Supporting Actress (Bell -- also for "Over Her Dead Body"), Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple, and Worst Remake/Rip-Off (of "War Of The Roses").

While it's not anywhere near as bad as Meet the Spartans and
Showgirls, it was pretty weak on laughs and its predictable and
unflattering story line. If anyone in this movie deserves a Razzie nomination,
it should be Ashton Kutcher.

Ashton for Worst Actor and Cameron for Worst Actress. That happened before and it'll happen again. Plus, both should be nominated for Worst Screen Couple.

I cannot quite recommend Cameron Diaz for anything, after seeing There's
Something About Mary
and My Best Friend's Wedding, I have
somewhat of a soft spot for her. Though when you put her with Ashton
Kutcher, then you have a valid nomination.

I still remember seeing semi-naked Cameron in one part of this movie. Eventually, I think we've seen a bunch o' Cameron Diaz movies with Cameron semi-naked like Charlie's Angels and it's awful sequel.

Not to forget There's Something About Mary, In Her Shoes, The Sweetest Thing, etc.

Was The Sweetest Thing that one with Christina Applegate? I'm pretty sure Cameron Diaz has a Will Ferrell Clause in her contracts, requiring one underwear scene per movie.

Yes, The Sweetest Thing was that one with Christina Applegate. Almost every movie with Cameron Diaz in it has at least an underwear scene featuring her in it.

She's not for me, but seriously, if you're going to be doing that many underwear scenes, you've really gotta be a bigger H-Wood Hooker.

I give this 3/10.Although Diaz wasn't awful,and her chemistry with Kutcher was just light,I think the movie deserves it's nominations.
