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.
Stupid plot but Nicolas Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker had great chemistry. Also i love the Elvis theme
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.
