    Easy going and fun. Very slick team of professionals created the whole project - yet, the result is a feel good flick, worth watching.

    Story/Screenplay: (3.5/5) This is not a lighthearted comedy, but it has its lighter moments. The overarching story, however, has got a darker side that becomes evident towards the end, putting a bit of a damper on the "romance" component of this story. Duration/Tempo: (3.5/5) At 1 hour and 36 minutes, it's a short movie that felt average in length. Not bad. Cast & Crew: (4/5) Sarah Jessica Parker was excellent. Loved Nicolas Cage's performance, and James Caan was perfectly cast as the third side of this love triangle. Summary: (3.5/5) The story and cast were good and the film didn't feel long. A thumbs up.

    Once you get over that this movie is 28-years-old it unfolds like a pretty standard movie whether then or now. I may have seen it before, back when it came out, but I couldn't remember anything about it because there were a few movies of this sort that were set in Vegas and came out around the same time. Not bad, not great... just an average movie with it's biggest flaw being that it was a comedy that could have used more comedians involved because it wasn't funny enough. 2 1/2 of 5

    Pretty weak. James Caan not cut out for comedy. Only bright note: Sarah Jessica Parker looks great.

    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.
