The jackpot that Peter Weller wins in the Casino from the Big Jackpot is 450,000 dollars which is about a quarter of the money that Atlas played by Dennis Hopper and his crew led by Martin Kove are stealing from the Casino. See more »

What are you starin' at?
Honey, where I'd just been you get a lot of trouble for staring. What's your name?
Ginger, do me a favour, will you? I'm not allowed to gamble. So all you have to do is just walk up, put the two Twenties in the machine and pull that lever. Whatever we win we'll make fifty fifty. What do you say?
Come on. You're my lucky star!

Man how can people hate this movie? peter Weller is on fire with his one liners and there's more memorable characters than you can poke an Uzi at. Go and watch 10 of the newest action movies and you'll still come back to this like a cat to seafood.Look at the cast.PETER WELLER - the everyman action king , DENNIS HOPPER - the evil double crossin psychopath who sez man more times than Neil from the young ones , MARTIN KOVE - a hilarious crim who loves killing and might have a few skeletons in the closet , TIA CARRERE - the hot but useless action woman ,PETER COYOTE - who's character competes with Weller's for the most classic lines , and plenty more including a fat skinhead , ed lauter , JOE PANTOLIANO!!! and a useless SWAT guy that couldn't hit whoopi goldberg half a meter away.
