What happens in Vegas
2008. Romantic comedy. Cameron Diaz, Ashton Kutcher, Rob Corddry, Lake Bell, Dennis Miller, Queen Latifah. My first notion when I had it in my queue was why, given the subject and trailers, was this PG-13 rather than R. Must be the dirty old man in me :-). But seriously, not many romantic comedies are PG-13 any more. Most rely on some sexual content to attract and keep the audience. This movie was funny from start to finish! When I settle in to watch a movie I have an empty ashtray and a full beer next to my easy chair. An hour and 41 minutes later I still had an empty ashtray and an almost full beer. Talk about cheap sets, two scenes were shot in what was supposed to be a commercial cabinet shop. I am sure they were just in the studio wood shop, but it was cool they had woodworking.
