Storyline

When two college girls hire the A-Team to rescue their professor who's been nabbed by the mob for a gambling system he's created that seems to work, Hannibal, B.A. and Murdock masquerade as a secret government hit squad in Las Vegas to take out mob boss Gianni Christian unless he turns the professor over to them. Complications arise after the professor's rescue when Christian ends up getting tossed from his penthouse by an overzealous underling and the Team, accused of the murder, is pursued by the mob and the cops as they try to escape. Written by R. Bernard Ment

Trivia

The red bellhop jacket worn by Hannibal was previously used and worn by Jerry Lewis in The Bellboy (1960). The shoulder knots and Fontainebleau logo had been removed, but Jerry's number "13" remains visible at the left of the jacket (though not prominently - the jacket was buttoned incorrectly so as to fit George Peppard).

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas
2 December 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

You do wonder if Hannibal needs to go to such elaborate ways to get hired. Those poor women really did put their lives in danger with all that money they were carrying.

The women hire The A Team to find their college professor who has found a system to win in roulette. He went to Las Vegas and has disappeared.

The A Team go to Vegas and pose has a government sanctioned hit squad to take out Vegas mob boss Gianni Christian.

However once Gianni hands over the professor over, Gianni ends up dead and The A Team are blamed for his murder. Someone took the opportunity to take over the gambling operation.

Some good action and humour. Tracy Scoggins makes and early appearance. Despite the little twist, it is rather flabby here and there.
