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

A good Saturday matinée watcher
16 September 2013 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

I always like to consider the mood I was in before I started watching any movie and the mood I am left in after the movie ends. There are movies such as in the case with Venus & Vegas that I find leave me with that satisfied feeling of coming out of the movie theater on a Saturday afternoon. It is simple in plot, moves along at a steady pace, has numerous characters (some you like, and some you don't) and with pockets of silly humor that lighten my thoughts to consider "life should be simple".

The movie consists of a good cast with actors Eddie Kaye Thomas, Donald Faison, and Eddie Guerra as three buddies who devise a get rich scheme to rob a Las Vegas warehouse of fake gambling chips that just happens to be owned by a mobster played by character actor Joe Polito.

Of course the three main characters have women coming in and out of their lives and these actresses not only make good eye candy but hold their own strong character portrayals which adds good content and more humor to the movie. The girlfriends are played by Molly Sims, Roselyn Sanchez and Jaime Pressly.

Another good performance was also played by Abraham Benrubi as Bruno, the muscle for Jon Polito's mobster character Frank. With lots of action and miscues and lots of interesting characters I quite enjoyed Venus & Vegas and I will make sure to watch it again when I need to forget about everything and escape in to a good mood for 95 minutes.
