    its a really good movie with a good cast. I've had it in the collection for a few years, but just rewatched on a flight a couple weeks ago. enjoyed it.

    Pretty sure it was not filmed at the IP. I think I recall reading once that it was actually filmed at a Reno casino that was due for rennovation or closure

    It was actually a pretty decent movie, but dark...almost as dark as Leavin Las Vegas....good drama, but not the pump you up for vacation type.

    Was filmed at the closed Flamingo Hilton, which was then re-opened as the Golden Phoenix, which has since closed.
