When her fiance dumps her in front of all of her friends, straight-laced commodities trader Joy (Cameron Diaz) escapes to Las Vegas to let loose, only to enter into a spur of the moment wedding with laid back party guy Jack (Ashton Kutcher). The pair has no plans to stick with the marriage—until they win a three million dollar jackpot together and a judge orders them to live as man and wife or forfeit all claims to the money. With that, the bickering couple engage in a battle through marriage counseling, cohabitation and even meeting the in-laws as they each try to get the other person to back out of the relationship.
The hilarious Vegas wedding proves that you don't need extensive preparation to have a memorable ceremony. Cameron looks amazing in an off-the-shoulder champagne jersey gown accessorized with pearls from Claire's Accessories and a Paula Varsalona tiara, and the pink and white chapel is charmingly kitschy. See if the couple can make the marriage work in the movie, in theaters everywhere today. —Kathryn Papanek
