Trivia

According to Rob Corddry, Ashton Kutcher slapped him in the face during his audition even though it was not scripted. See more »

Goofs

The initial shot of the Las Vegas "strip" shown just after both sets of characters leave New York was printed optically reversed; the casinos are on the wrong sides of Las Vegas Boulevard S and the signs for Bellagio and MGM Grand and the on-building sign for Monte Carlo can all clearly be seen to be mirror-images.

Quotes

Joy McNally: Is there any part of the night, I don't know, maybe say the part where I was about to marry the rebound guy, that you thought, 'hey oh my God, this is a really good time for an intervention'?
Tipper: [extremely hungover] Seriously?
Joy McNally: Yeah.
Tipper: I like... threw up in my own purse... so...

Get ready for real fun…
14 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Following a wild night of too many drinks in Las Vegas, Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher, wake up to discover that they are married in this funny and colorful romantic comedy…

But after a huge, disputed win at a casino, the neurotic newlyweds end up in court fighting over the grand prize…

To try to make things work, the weary judge (Dennis Miller) freezes the money and sentences them to "six months hard marriage" to make them learn how to live together as man and wife, and maybe, eventually, they will really fall in love…

Diaz and Kutcher work together well on screen… They are appealing, and they bring some really comic moments… Their performances make us smile…

Some of the supporting cast showed off their talent and managed to steal a few genuine laughs...The movie is enjoyable, and director Tom Vaughan did a decent job…
