Jack (Ashton Kutcher) and Joy (Cameron Diaz) meet each other while drowning their sorrows on a drunken night in Vegas (He’s just been fired by his father, she’s just been dumped by her corporate bore of a boyfriend). They wake up with a splitting headache, finding themselves married to each other and discovering that they’re none too pleased about it. After a painless decision to get divorced as soon as possible, matters are complicated when Jack wins three million dollars from a slot machine by using Joy’s quarter.
