It was an ingenious enough plan: rob the Riviera Casino's count room during an Elvis impersonator convention. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane. With $3.2 million at stake, the Marshals Service closing in, and single mom Cybil Waingrow and her son Jesse constantly confounding things, Michael must track down Murphy. Written by

Fun Fact: at the beginning when Michael catches Jesse stealing from his car. Jesse kicks Michael in the shin.
In the movie It happened at the Worlds Fair... Kurt Russell as a boy kicked Elvis Presley in the shin. See more »
When Murphy reaches into the bag right before the final shootout, a scorpion stings him. However, the scorpion exhibits some impossible behavior. First, the scorpion jumps on his hand, but scorpions can't jump. A scorpion probably wouldn't attack a moving object like that, anyway. Second, the scorpion stings the hand. However, it stings it by bending the tail under its body. This is impossible since scorpions don't sting like this. They sting up and over their body. They also sting what they have in their claws. They are designed to capture prey in their claws and then feel around it with the tail and steadily deliver the sting. See more »
This started with such great style, color and pizazz, I thought I had discovered a real "sleeper," a film I didn't expect to be good that was turning out to be very entertaining.
Well, after the big Las Vegas heist and shortly thereafter when we got a full look at the wild characters and even wilder action scenes, the film settled down and the dialog took over. Unfortunately, that was the film's downfall as the dialog is either incredibly stupid and-or annoying in the second half of this movie. Most annoying was this young kid, you know - the smart-ass kind that says things NO kid his age would say in real life. He also had a foul mouth, and I don't like to see that from young kids.
All the characters in here are pretty much low-life people, the worst being the one played by Kevin Costner, who seemed to relish this role. If you like low-class people, you'll like this story. I gave it points for the style and the fast-moving story, but it's too unpleasant overall for me.
