The popular expression, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" conjures up a veritable jackpot of shed inhibitions, insane indulgence, and gleeful debauchery. Also if you can remember any of it, you probably weren't there.

But what would happen if a few crazy, or hugely inebriated moments in Sin City not only didn't "stay" there but also followed you all the way back home and threatened to turn your life upside down? That's the setup that explodes into a series of outrageous consequences for two sexy, if wildly mismatched, strangers in the comedy WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS.

Two strangers - Joy McNally (Cameron Diaz) and Jack Fuller (Ashton Kutcher) - are two New Yorkers vacationing in Las Vegas and having a rowdy weekend. But they awake in Vegas to discover they've got married during a night of utter debauchery as a signed marriage license stares them in the face.

Both parties are determined to annul the marriage, but when they win three million bucks in a slot machine bonanza - that changes everything!. Well, Jack won it with Joy's quarter. At the machine she'd already been playing. Or was it the other way around? And whose loot is it anyway?

The newlyweds try to outwit and undermine one another and devise ever-escalating schemes in an effort to get their hands on the money first. Therein lies the weird hand dealt this bickering duo, who take their predicament back to Manhattan only to be sentenced by the intractable Judge Whopper (Dennis Miller) to "six months hard marriage." Whopper refuses to grant Jack and Joy an annulment, freezes the prize booty, and forces the irresponsible couple to prove they have done everything humanly possible to make their impromptu marriage work

Can Jack and Joy survive their six months of "wedded bliss" without killing each other first and ultimately cash in for the big payoff? Or will the fiery sparks that ricochet between them actually ignite. The trouble is that the harder they fight each, the more they find themselves falling in love...

In the end, what happens in WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS may prove the biggest surprise of all.
