What Happens In Vegas is an American film about a man and a woman who accidentally get married after a drunken night in Las Vegas, and after they win $3m together, they are sentenced to 6 months of real marriage, otherwise neither of them will get the money.

This was funny. I really enjoyed the ways that the man and the woman tried to outdo one another and force them into making mistakes that would cause them not to get any of the money won, because they were just so ridiculously cunning that they were completely unbelievable.

Although the story of this film was quite poor, I still thought that it had some great comedic farce, and even though it did become a little cheesy towards the end of the film, it was still a great film to watch.

Even though it may seem like a completely unlikely and preposterous situation, it was made to be very realistic, as well as fantastically funny, and because of that, I’m going to give this a 7.5.
