21 is a good movie! Can't believe I've waited this long to see it.
The book is even better.
One of my favorites as well
21 is one of my favorites and is always in the "Vegas Movie Monday" rotation leading up to a trip. Just sad how badly they white-washed the cast though.
I bet we are doing the same thing. Trying to find any movie we can about Vegas because our trips are so close. I watched rounders yesterday. I agree (watched it last week lol) 21 is a excellent movie
Agreed but Hollywood using white actors to play real life people who aren't white is so common that its hardly contentious unfortunately. I enjoyed the movie and the book as a work of fiction, which is what pretty much everything Mezrich writes is despite his claims. His books are so twisted and over-sensationalized from the true events that they practically lose any resemblance to them anymore. Ugly Americans was even worse because the people involved fictionalized their story in the first place, then Mezrich added a whole new layer of fiction on top of it to give it more pizzazz.
Ding ding ding... Winner winner chicken dinner!
Make sure "The Cooler" is on your list. Baldwin, Macy, Bello, worth a watch.
Showgirls and Casino are two that I usually watch before a Vegas trip. Lucky You with Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore is another good Vegas movie. Here is a list of movies set in Vegas for some more ideas:
gonna xbmc the cooler today for lunch. Thanks never heard of or watched it.
Lucky You isn't bad, not a "feel good" movie by any means but still decent.
The Hangover, Oceans 11 & 13 and Vegas Vacation are my go-to Vegas movies.
omg just watched "the cooler". Terrible movie. The chick was very hot, loved the nude scenes. Overall I felt sad after the movie. lol. I guess I will have to watch oceans 13 now since I haven't seen that one yet.
:confused2: How is that possible? Oceans 11 was great, 12 not so much. 13 is just as good as 11 IMO
Anyway, I'll even watch "Last Vegas" if I'm really desperate.
Deleted duplicate post.
I was saying the movie "the cooler" was bad not oceans 13. I havent seen oceans 13 yet.
Last Vegas wasn't bad.
I saw Think Like A Man Too. A TON of Vegas in it. Not really any gambling, but they shot a lot in public spaces.
For old school "Going in Style" is good. Shows old Vegas.
Only part I didn't like was when they were stuck in traffic and decided to "walk" to Aria. Except they were walking the strip in the wrong direction. I doubt most people would notice that, but I'm sure most people who frequent this site will notice.
One of the lessor known Vegas Movies:
Night of the Running Man
A Las Vegas cab driver finds a million dollars of stolen money in his cab after his fare is murdered. Soon after, a ruthless hitman is in persuit; he will stop at nothing to recover the money and dispose of all witnesses.
