"We're caught in a trap..."
4 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

I always thought that it was strange that the film "Indecent Proposal" was released not long after "Honeymoon in Vegas" and that no one seemed to make anything of the overt similarities between their plots, which involve men who "gamble" away their fiancees. Both films take a generally misogynistic approach to "romance," although the antics in "Vegas" are generally less repulsive than the typical "romantic comedy" fodder that, in most states, would usually constitute some form of stalking or harrassment.

"Honeymoon in Vegas," however, is not nearly so maladjusted. Unfortunately, it isn't so funny, either. There are some choice one-liners and a great climactic scene involving the Flying Elvises, but it generally isn't very engaging because the plot and most of the characters are rather dull.

But Cage and Parker are both monumentally talented and charming, and they somehow manage to carry this film through its lapses in quality.

A side note: "Honeymoon in Vegas" has BY FAR one of the best soundtracks EVER-- the wide array of Elvis cover-songs is simply amazing: Billy Joel's take on "All Shook Up" and Dwight Yoakam's [he's the singer who covered Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" for the Gap commercial, fyi] rendition of "Suspicious Minds" really stand out among a truly stellar collection. Hearing this music in the background will carry you through most of the less-than-interesting moments of "Vegas."

Rating: 6 out of 10. Not bad. Parker, Cage, and the soundtrack make "Honeymoon in Vegas," at the very least, a WATCHABLE film with some very enjoyable moments scattered throughout. It's worth seeing once, and the soundtrack is definitely worth picking up from the discount bins.
