    I read that they’ll never make “21” based on the book, it would be too boring.

    I also enjoyed the tv show Las Vegas. But it had inaccuracies, like the hotel looked like it was south strip, but in the bosses office the view outside looked like it was center strip. And the casino was a studio. No casino would allow filming and no casino was will to let them use their name, that’s why it was the fictional Montecetio. If I remember correctly the show was canceled due to the writers strike. And it ended on a cliffhanger as most canceled shows do.

    I loved Burt. But many people not familiar with Vegas never understood the movie. It went over many people's heads.
    Thats why i loved it, so many scenes with little moments that if you blinked you may have missed it. The perfect Vegas movie.

    I like this list. Fear and Loathing takes a certain commitment to watch. I also like 21 too. Not for the acting, but for the locations.

    I laughed through so many scenes in that movie... but the funniest were the HUGE positive counts that seemed to happen quite frequently, and always resulted in a win when acted upon....if only!

    I suck. I leave in about three weeks but I have such a busy August that I don't know when I will get all of my Vegas Film Fest viewing in.

    I write this nice article on Vegas Bright a few years ago about the movies that I MUST watch before a trip to Vegas. There are lots listed and I've added more (how come nobody told me about Oceans 13 before last spring?), but what did I watch tonight?

    When I saw it on Amazon Prime, I thought "What the hey!?!?" and gave it a go.

    What a waste of an hour and a half. I did find an appropriate review for it, though.

    Can’t forget Plenty O’Toole.

    A couple of non Vegas movies were mentioned, so if you need a 1970’s trip through gambling degeneracy: California Split with George Segal and Elliot Gould, directed by Robert Altman. Filmed in California card rooms and Reno.

    TV show Las Vegas. The cast really worked well together and provided lots of eye candy. The original CSI was Vegas based and I still watch reruns to this day. The advent of HD television brought back so many memories every time the show came on due to the shots of the strip.

    For movies it is most definitely Vegas Vacation. That movie IS the 1990s in Vegas in everything you saw and did if you had a limited budget. I still watch it either on the airplane when on my way or just before I leave.

    not a movie but the old Vega$ with Robert Urich. 3 seasons all filmed on location. Story lines are cheesy but love seeing the old strip and downtown. Robert Urich is easy on the eyes.

    Yes and back before the year of the VCRs you can see the same clips in different episodes. Especially the same one in front of the police station. -- I guess they thought no one would ever notice.

    Not totally Vegas, but love the ending of Jason Bourne with the chase scene going down the strip. Was in Vegas the weekend they filmed the strip scene.

    Same with most 70s shows. My favorite (Emergency!) had so many recycled scenes that I now yell "Stock Footage Alert!" at my TV screen (even if I am alone) and I actually chart the first usage of the stock footage when I see it in an early episode.

    The Decades TV channel had a Vega$ marathon earlier this year. I recorded the entire thing on my DVR and I watch them every now and again.
