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 »

This movie keeps you watching, it's definitely not Oscar or Golden Globe material - it is simply a light hearted film meant to entertain you.
The plot could have been sewn together a little more tightly as there are a few holes but nothing beyond the viewers understanding. However, it is a lighthearted, romantic comedy. The dialogue is fresh and new for the time it was made, and I would go as far to say even now. The wit and banter is commendable and during serious moments it is soul baring and honest.
Acting of course, Robert Downey has never given a bad performance, he always own the characters and leaves you in awe. Dennis Hopper- same for him, he's a great actor for a reason. Molly Ringwald .. never been a fan.. she's very one dimensional as an actress, always seems to have one expression for anger and pain.
Overall I say it's worth watching just for RDJ. It was his first lead role.
