year 5 day 142

movie: Honeymoon in Vegas
starring: Nicolas Cage, Sarah Jessica Parker
genre: Comedy
year: 1992
format: Hollywood Suites Channel

plot: After loosing money in a poker game, a desperate man allows his girlfriend to spend the weekend with the man who hustled him. Before long, he finds himself in the bad end of a wild goose chase to get her back.

I have one word for this. Retarded. Yep, I thought it was a really stupid premise.

I'm not sure if the "moral of the story" is  knowing when you've found your one, or always allow second chances, or not to be a dink gambling in the first place? But it all seems to be covered in this movie.
You've got a guy who's afraid to commit, a woman who doesn't seem to know her worth, and a con artist. Had this been taken a bit more on the serious side, it would have made for a good drama, but instead, the comedy just didn't take hold.  And the side story of the Parker character semi-falling for the James Caan character, just made her seem weak.

what did I learn? I'll never be an Elvis fan.
