The pre-opening credits show a cartoon version of Jack Singer trying by various means to climb a wedding cake in order to reach a bride standing on the top, but each time being foiled by a thundercloud. Eventually the bride climbs off the cake just as he is climbing upwards and leaves. Frustrated by this Jack causes the cake to collapse beneath him. See more »
Don't take any side trips if you're going to Vegas to get married...
Cage is a man whose mother preached to him about the evils of marriage and took it with her to the grave, giving him nightmares, especially when his girlfriend, Parker is pressuring him to marry her. Caan is a mobster who lost his wife that looked a lot like Parker. The setting is a romantic backdrop surrounding the sights of Las Vegas. I like how they mentioned Bally's casino & hotel so many times, but my girlfriend said that the place is no longer open.
Cage is a fanatic about getting his girl back when Caan sets him up to lose her in a poker game. He might be a fanatic, but he's also an idiot! He couldn't see that he was cheated, but then, to top it off, Caan comes up with a solution SO QUICKLY when it comes time for Cage to pay back the money!
The movie is not bad! Caan makes a good bad guy, as he's proved so many times. Cage takes the uneasiness about getting married to a new limit and Parker...well, I think the only reason Parker was there was to look cute. I realize that she didn't have much to say when it came time for Cage to pay up and I don't think that much of Cage for him to even consider the option when presented to him. It's almost like a romantic comedy version of "Indecent Proposal."
