According to the Robert Downey Jr. Film Guide' web-site, Warren Beatty was originally involved as a producer, but he was unhappy with how the movie turned out and wouldn't put his name on it". See more »
During the most of the movie, Randy wears a blouse is buttoned up to the neck and a necklace over the top of it. Except for the scene where she is exiting the casino after her big loss, as she walks out and her blouse is unbuttoned at the neck and she is not wearing the necklace. However, in the next scene the blouse is buttoned again and necklace returns.
The description of an apparent discontinuity is accurate; however, in the shot with open blouse and sans necklace, Randy is also not wearing her jacket. In the following shot, as she emerges from the casino with Jack after her devastating setback, she has donned her jacket, buttoned her blouse, and restored her necklace. The apparent costume discontinuity dissolves in the brief lapse of unrecorded time. See more »

Features Molly Ringwald and Robert Downey, Jr., solid "5" of 10 movie.
What's most amazing about this film is 5% of the IMDb voters gave it a "10"! I suspect they are all friends, relatives, or agents of members of the cast. Molly, who was only 18, and Robert are fine, however the story and script are pretty plain. Both of them are "gamblers", Downey is trying to pick up Molly, doesn't succeed until the very end, the day after she told him "we're not good for each other." Gangsters and Atlantic City gambling are involved. Some pretty high-powered actors, like Keitel, Aiello, Baranski, Hopper, Bracco, Gunton (Shawshank warden) are in it.
This film is one of those in Ringwald's "hit void" between "Pretty in Pink" and "Betsy's Wedding", the latter a hit only because of the rest of the cast. Although she has been in many films, very few of us have seen her since 1990. I wonder what happened to her promising film career?
