A man takes his girlfriend to Vegas to get married but he essentially loses her to a shark in a poker bet. In order to pay off the debt, his fiancee must spend the weekend with the gambling shark (James Caan). This comedy is definitely different and not for all tastes, but at its core, is a simple entertaining comedy that's worth a look.

I'm a huge fan of writer/director Andrew Bergman. He has a very distinct comedy voice in his films ("The In-Laws," "So Fine" or "The Freshman") and no one makes modern screwball comedies like he does. The plot has a situation ripe for comedy and is one I could easily have seen Preston Sturges' stock company of actors putting on. Nick Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker go off to Vegas to get marries, but Cage loses all his money to Jame Caan, who has designed on Parker. Caan will forgive the debt if he can spend the weekend with Parker. This film gets credit for predating "Indecent Proposal" by a year and this film actually handles the same dilemmas much better and with far fewer pretensions. Besides the three main leads, you also get a great supporting cast that includes. Pat Morita, Anne Bancroft, Peter Boyle, Seymour Cassel, Ben Stein, Tony Shalhoub, and a 5-year old Bruno Mars as Little Elvis. The film's composer, David Newman, also deserves credit for a peppy comic filmscore. Rematching this film now, it wasn't quite as funny as I remembered, but it's still a very enjoyable comedy with a very likable cast, who all manage to take a rather skeezy set up and manage to keep it from dipping into sleaze.

S'il n'y a absolument rien d'exceptionnel dans cette comédie burlesque, Honeymoon in Vegas est un film plutôt drôle, franchement très sympathique, inoffensif et ne souffrant d'aucun temps mort. Andrew Bergman parvient donc à garder un bon rythme dans cette course-poursuite à travers Las Vegas et Hawaii entre le très drôle Nicolas Cage et l'inquiétant James Caan pour récupérer Sarah Jessica Parker. Ce n'est jamais très fin mais c'est divertissant et c'est tout ce qui compte pour ce genre d'entreprise.

The plot is centered on a good enough idea that should work as an offbeat romantic comedy, but it just never becomes as fun or as funny as the film promises.

Cage is terrific in this funny tale of greed and regret on steroids......and how to win back the girl.

Movies like this (ones with a completely absurd premise) you're supposed to just enjoy for the laughs, and while it has a few of them, the story is just so silly that it's hard to take it seriously.

Funny but forgettable

who Knew Nicholas Was So Damn Hairy!!? Comic Timing, Not Bein' His Best Suit, He'd Probably Had Fared Better In One Of The Elvis Get-Ups.. Which Kinda Happens Near The End, But Still, Mediocre Laughs Here..Not Much Else.

The script is nothing great, the actors do their jobs, but what makes this movie is the flying Elvises or Elvi.

It's not a great movie but it's basically just dopey and fun. Nic Cage is in great spazz-out form here, SJP looks fantastic and there's a buncha Elvises. What more do you want.

A goofy, charming, and predictable rom-com.

I remember watching this when it first came out on video, it's still quite good and enjoyable.

Caan and Cage are a blast to watch, both vying for the affections of Sarah Jessica Parker.

Brimming with glitzy gaiety and cocky comedy, Andrew Bergman's Honeymoon In Vegas is 96 minutes of solid escapism. The film makes a fantastic showcase for Nicolas Cage's angsty antics, particularly when he takes to skydiving in an Elvis costume, yet one can't help but feel that Cage and Caan's conflicts could've taken up one or two more scenes. After all, when are these guys ever likely to share the screen again? Fun, but far from fantastic.

Enjoyable. With a unique setting but accompanied by a predictable, if not fun to get to ending; 'Honeymoon in Vegas' makes for great entertainment. Cage is lovable but goofy. Caan changed from annoying to likable and back to annoying. I felt like the motivation for his actions is not strong enough to do what he does, sure, he is given a reason and you can sympathize with him but the extremity it reaches is not that great of a reason, above all else... His voice is awesome. Parker is gullible and easily distrusting. It is a situation where 'the story fits the characters' not, 'the characters fit the story'- which is what it should be. However, it is simple to see what Bergman was aiming for. You know, those romcoms where the lover is about to leave and the original boyfriend chases after her on a scooter. It has moments of humor and outrageous moments, often played by Mr. Cage. It's a nice little film that Bergman states 'won't change your life, but you'll walk away saying, that was pretty good' and I agree with him. The ending will just blow you away.

Plenty of Cage-rage with nice treats for Karate Kid, Monk and Everybody Loves Raymond fans (I have ultimate cast knowledge!)

This is a comedy with a hint of Indecent Proposal in there and Elvis, lots of fake Elvis. It's pretty funny, mostly because of Cage but it's really nothing special. Pretty boring and predictable but there's enough there for it to be worth watching anyway. If you are a Cage fan there's certainly some memorable scenes and I am so yes, BRING THE CAGE!!!

A solid B movie with old-school comedy reminiscent of Mel Brooks. Parker and Cage give standard play. It's James Caan that gives the film its spark. He's marvelous.

how can this movie be so lowly rated? I think it's terrific, especially the end....super funny!
