I watched the movie first in the cinema when it first came out.
The movie is about a man and a woman who meet in Vegas and get very drunk and get married. But just as they agreed that the wedding should be annulled, he wins a lot of money. She then decides that as they are married she is entitled to half... but a judge disagrees and makes them live as husband and wife to earn the cash.
It is a cheesy comedy that has some good moments and some bad moments.
The story is quite good, but this is a romantic comedy so just like all romcoms, the first 2 thirds of the movie is very good, but the final part is just mushy dribble.
The movie stars Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz. They are both completely over the top in this movie. I am not overly impressed with either of them as actors. I think Cameron can be funny, but generally just annoying. Ashton is not very funny, but can be entertaining at times. He was quite funny in this though.
There were a lot of predictable moments in this film. There wasn't anything really original in there. I did like the way they fought each other throughout... I think that is was made this film as entertaining as it was.
There are a lot of romantic comedies out there and sometimes I wish there would be some more original stories, but it seems that if you are making a film like this, there is a typical formula that you have to stick to.
This film is good, it is funny, it is entertaining, but it is not the best. There are a lot more comedies out there that are a lot better.
I will give this film 6 out of 10.
