Sex & Lies In Sin City
29 May 2012 | by (las vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

This is a good little made for TV movie.

I really enjoyed this because I live in Las Vegas and am familiar with the Ted Binion scandal. I thought it was very well portrayed by some excellent actors. As other reviews have said, I am quite sure that none of these characters were as good looking or exciting as they were in this particular movie. Matthew Modine was very convincing as a mogul on his way down due to his heroin addiction. Mira Sorvino plays an excellent temptress. Marcia Gay Harden played a great Becky Binion. I am highly fascinated by all movies and things "vegas" and I think most of the population is also. That's what makes this and all other movies and shows centered in Las Vegas so popular.

All in all - a very enjoyable movie to watch - I highly recommend you catch it!
