Storyline

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...well it's a whole other matter when you live there! Eric (Eddie Guerra) and Tara (Jaime Pressly), a couple living in Vegas are really in need of a major event -- to help them breakup already! He knows she's dating someone new, but can't let her go. Desperate to win back her heart, and convinced that his "unemployed" status is the cause of all their problems, Eric agrees to join his buddies Stu (Donald Faison) and Alex (Eddie Kaye Thomas), whose principle talents are scamming and avoiding adulthood, and with girlfriend problems of their own, when they discover the easy score of a lifetime-a boatload of casino chips sitting in a warehouse. The casino chips belong to old-school Vegas mobster Frank Santino (Jon Polito) and just happen to be counterfeit. If it happens in Vegas, it's bound to get messy! And when the score doesn't go exactly as planned, comedy and mayhem ensue as Alex is taken prisoner by the Santinos, while Eric and Stu end up... Written by Anonymous

Stale (poker) chips
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An unfunny movie that is all over the place plot-wise, yet isn't nearly as clever or funny to keep one interested, much less entertained. I felt bad for the one notable actor in the film, Jon Polito, who appears to be slumming it in this tale of a trio of idiot petty criminals who run afoul of the local mafia boss. There's also a few side-plots, one involving Jamie Pressly being the same character she always plays, the other two are more ridiculous. Not ridiculous in a funny way, just stupid and inconsequential.

Anyway, I know humor is very subjective but I hardly managed a grin much less a laugh from this dreary little film.Having seen it on Netflix I didn't exactly go out of my way to view it. So silver lining and all.
