If you like Damon Runyon (obviously, Neil Simon does!), it's a probable 12 to 7 that you will LOVE this movie. Sets are fabulous depiction of "old Las Vegas" as are costumes. Because of the period depiction, this movie is more entertaining now than when it was released in 1991. Almost as good as "Let it Ride" (Richard Dryfus).
If you are looking for reality, you won't find it here. But what you will find is clever (remember, Neil Simon wrote it), good acting, and GREAT singing by Kim Basinger (I didn't know she could do that!)and absolutely fabulous narration by I don't even know who. The morning line on this movie may have been 5 to 2 but it closed an odds on favorite in my book.
