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 SHOWGIRLS -- BUT IT LOOKS NEARLY as DENSE as THAT 1995 RAZZIE® CLASSIC.

STARRING TWO "ACTORS" WHOSE CAREERS ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY ABOUT THEIR LOOKS, 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 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 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 RT).

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.

I just noticed the "HIV" in the abbreviation of What Happens in Vegas title.

Well at this point this has a 28% Rating at 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.

It's now lower than "Speed Racer" -- YAY! Take that Ass-Face Kutcher!
