Do happy things ever happen in Las Vegas?
18 June 2002 | by bbetctSee all my reviews

I had heard about this movie a while ago and happen to see it in Blockbuster last night. So I had to rent it. Great film. I was really taken by the character of Eric. He really left an impression on me.

It is an interesting slice of teenage life set in Vegas. It's a movie about love and friendship and trying to make your way in life and the consequences of that. The cast was wonderful. I was surprised by the range of some of these actors that I normally don't care for. I think that Jordon Brower, who plays Eric, is one to watch. And Jesse Bradford seemed to move more towards a King of the Hill performance rather than a Bring it On one. I will stop babbling now and say: great film, go see it.
