What Happens in Vegas

 (2008)

What Happens in Vegas Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

For charismatic party guy Jack Fuller (Ashton Kutcher) and buttoned-up commodities trader Joy McNally (Cameron Diaz), a rowdy weekend coincidentally shared in Las Vegas should have, by all rights, ended up being little more than a random blur. That is, if these two vacationing New Yorkers didn't have a signed marriage license staring them in the face to shockingly remind them of the giant misstep they took while feeling no pain, Vegas-style. Stacking the deck, not only did Jack and Joy tie the knot after tying one on, but later scored a mind-blowing three million bucks in a slot machine bonanza. 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?

For more about What Happens in Vegas and the What Happens in Vegas Blu-ray release, see What Happens in Vegas Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

What Happens in Vegas Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

What Happens in Vegas comes to Blu-ray with a bold 1080p, 2.35:1 framed transfer. This transfer is a mixed bag, looking great at times and awkward at others. The movie offers a very natural, film-like transfer in many scenes. Detail is eye-catching and realistic, including background and distant objects that are often sharp and well-defined. Fine detail isn't as strong as the best of transfers in every regard, but the balance of "good" detail across the entirety of the image, rather than just in close-ups, is a positive. The opening montage where we meet the characters shows strong color reproduction and clarity in every shot. Black levels are remarkably strong, coming off as one of the finer aspect of the disc. There is a warm look to the proceedings with over-exaggerated colors and an abundance of bright, almost unnatural hues. Films such as this one or Drillbit Taylor offer colors so vibrant and over saturated that they border on distraction, but assuming the look is director-intended, its presence is most welcome, agree with it or not. Flesh tones veer toward the red side of the scale in many scenes, as expected considering the overblown nature of colors in the transfer. Sadly, there are a few instances where the transfer looks incredibly soft, offering a sharp contrast to the many scenes featuring nicely detailed objects, including those in distant backgrounds. Also, there is a processed, unnatural look to many scenes, looking almost like the actors in the scene were filmed in front of green screens with poor results. Indeed, I was not surprised to hear in the commentary track that there were several green screen shots filmed in New York with Vegas backgrounds digitally inserted later. This transfer is certainly an odd duck, and never having seen the film before, nor being privy to the director-intended look of the film, it's hard to judge. For the most part, however, it looks very nice and considering Fox's track record of releasing high quality discs, this one gets the benefit of the doubt in regards to its apparent shortcomings.


What Happens in Vegas Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

What Happens in Vegas presents listeners with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless audio track. Fairly typical of its genre, this track is front heavy and dialogue-driven, but surrounds and subwoofer do get to come out and play a bit more than they do in other movies of this sort. Dialogue, the life blood of any Romantic Comedy, is strong, loud, and clear. So is everything else, for that matter, with an emphasis on "loud." The "screaming" scene in chapter five is not only highly annoying, but it also comes across as garbled and undefined. The track is boisterous and plenty noisy, with dance music, deep bass, and plenty more yelling, screaming, and irksome moments throughout. There is some decent ambience in the quieter scenes that works well. Check out the "morning after' scene in chapter eight at breakfast. The atmospheric sounds of a 3/4 empty casino are heard in the background to nice effect. Unfortunately, the soundstage never opens up and always feels tight and compact. There is no lack of effort here, but the end result is not overly impressive. The track is technically sound yet highly annoying, just like the movie. I'd recommend watching this one with the volume turned well below your normal level to save yourself the displeasure of hearing it in full force.
