What Happens In Vegas doesn't Really stay in Vegas

Oh my gosh.....I am still smiling after watching the movie. I started watching it expecting completely nothing at all....and boy was I surprised. I feel confident enough to say that I'm by all means, a movie buff...I watch any and all genres...but I found this movie such a delight to watch...its definitely and rightfully so, A FEEL GOOD MOVIE. It is pretty light-hearted fun on the surface but my my...it makes you feel the love brewing in the air. The exchange of dialogues at the end even gave me a wake up call onto how I actually view love. I highly recommend this for smiles,laughs and emotions you'll never forget. Simply fantabulous!!! 10 out of 10 for me....because it just made ma day...wait i think ma entire year actually!
