    It was horrible but great to see Vegas in a movie.

    Enjoyed the view. Didn't think it was a terrible movie. Guess I'm easily entertained.

    Paul Blart 2. I'll usually watch anything that features Vegas but I barely made it through that.

    I actually liked that movie. The only bad Vegas movie I think is Leaving Las Vegas. To depressing. I know the critics loved it but I didn't.

    I've heard that a third one is in the making.
    For this one, Blart goes Downtown to do some casino security.

    It will be called The King of Four Queens...:D

    My pic for a bad Vegas movie is ' Blast Vegas ' starring Frankie Muniz. What the hell? Is this The Mummy invades Vegas with that sandstorm? LOL!

    "'Leaving Las Vegas', see it drunk with someone you paid to love you."

    My Vegas movie is 'Rain Man', because the view from Caesars Palace was the same as my first visit in 1992.

    Just watched Frank and Lola which is partly set in Vegas. No gambling. Kind of an interesting movie but I liked the first 2 minutes a lot more than the rest of the movie and the ending had me going wait, what?

    I'm watching The Player Secrets of a Vegas Whale on Amazon Prime. Interesting I think it is several years old but fun to see some of the shots of Vegas.

    Man, I loved Leaving Las Vegas, but Hard Eight is really my Vegas film. In fact William H. is in another Vegas film I like, The Cooler.

    A lot of people tanked on Wild Card with Jason Statham -- but I love that movie. Great Vegas scenes too.

    I actually liked both those movies. Not Vegas based but Mississippi Grind was also good.

    Bad movie and Nic Cage tends to be redundant.

    Hey now.... I tend to agree though. I think he's a very good actor who's done some very good movies. Then he and/or his agent started accepting very bad scripts.
