To be honest, I'd sort of brushed aside the Ashton Kutcher-Cameron Diaz rom-com What Happens in Vegas because from the trailer it struck me as vapid and charmless. This new trailer, however, is slightly better, I must admit. Diaz tiredly steps back into her kooky-goofball-hot-girl shoes as Joy, a woman who takes off for Las Vegas in a post-breakup getaway. There she meets Jack (Kutcher) and the two spend a wild night together that ends with their nuptials, which, of course they regret the morning after. Then, when one of them wins a jackpot using the other's quarter, as the plot description goes, the "unhappy pair try to undermine each other and get their hands on the money — falling in love along the way." Yeah.
It's not going to be thoughtful and poignant, but it also doesn't look that bad. The movie opens May 9. To check out the new trailer,
