A: A couple of strangers (Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher) drunkenly get married in Vegas, and on the verge of their annulment, one of them wins a $3 million jackpot with the other one's quarter. Now, if either of them ever wants to see a dime, they will be stuck giving this marriage a try.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Cameron Diaz, Ashton Kutcher, Rob Corddry, Lake Bell, Jason Sudeikis, Treat Williams, Michelle Kruseic, Dennis Farina, Zach Galifianakis, Queen Latifa, Krysten Ritter
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. For anyone who likes a good, cheesy, Hollywood, mostly implausible romantic comedy about two inhumanly attractive people who don't want to have sex with each other, this is the one. Wow, it sounds awful when I put it that way... But what I'm really trying to say is it's just good, clean, mindless fun.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: Even if you've seen the trailer as many times as I did. The funny parts actually weren't in it.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: No, but I was surprised to see that Ashton Kutcher was able to muster teary eyes at the appropriate moment... although it could have been eye drops. Or CGI.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: If you considered it an award to hit number one on the charts, then yes, because this movie is sure to hit number one when it comes out on DVD.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: To quote my friend Eric, who is a heterosexual male, "It's always a little weird when the guy is prettier than the girl..." To quote myself, "Hallelujah!"
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Montages keep the story moving fast and fun through the expositional parts.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: Funnier than I expected. But it definitely involves several moments of suspension of disbelief. For example, no judge has ever sentenced anyone to 6 months of hard marriage. No woman would ever take off her ex-fiancees $30,000 engagement ring without immediately trading it in for cash. And no one has ever turned down Ashton Kutcher for sex. I know you'd like to think you would, but it's just not humanly possible.
