Customer Reviews

The cast is great and so is the movie.
Joan Vincent
Just know that if you're expecting `Adaptation' levels of hilarity you will be sorely disappointed since that Cage is not present in this mess.
Andrew Ellington
I won't give away the ending, but I think everyone will enjoy this funny,funny movie!

LOVED IT!!!! It is one of my favorites! Sometimes critics get too caught up in reviewing that ultimate "Oscar" movie. This is for pure entertainment! A committment phobe, his girlfriend and a psychotic mobster make a hilarious pins and needles combination. The scenes are fabulous in both Hawaii and Vegas. The soundtrack is simply the best! If you love Vegas, Elvis and all that goes with a wacky relationship, this one is for you!

Many friends of mine didn't like this movie until I got them to notice its little quirky intricacies. Cage is fantastic as the melodramatic undercover cop; Parker and Caan do great supporting jobs in this special comedy. Some might feel Cage is overacting throughout the film, but that is what gives the movie its real special "character." Give it a shot.

"It's a disaster waiting to happen," Jack Singer's mother told him as she lay, in the hospital, on her death bed. She is talking about marriage. In this hilarious romantic comedy titled "Honeymoon in Vegas", Nicholas Cage stars as Jack Singer who is an undercover spy for spouses who feel as though they are being cheated on. He is in love with a beautiful school teacher, Betsy Nolan, played by Sarah Jessica Parker. Unfortunately, Jack Singer is procrastinating marriage to Betsy (who really wants a commitment) because of what his mother says about the atrocious word "marriage", and also because of what he sees when he is "at work". Finally, when Betsy comes out and says that she wants to be married and that she will not be his girlfriend forever, Jack decides to go to Vegas and marry her. Betsy is ecstatic about his decision. However, this is where they meet Tommy Korman, played by James Cann, who falls in love with Betsy, a look-alike of his deceased wife. He is a circuit gambler in Vegas and he invites Jack Singer to play in a poker game the day he and Betsy arrive in Vegas. Even though Betsy has a bad feeling about the game, Jack convinces her that it will only be a couple hours and that there is a significantly large money prize to be won. Needless to say, Jack goes and he loses with a straight flush. Tommy gives him two options: come up with the money or give Betsy to him for the weekend. Since Jack has no way to come up with the money, he decides to give away his girlfriend for the weekend; he is not one bit pleased about his decidion. Tommy decides to take Betsy to Hawaii to his beach house where they can be alone. While they are there, Jack is a wreck because his conscience is taking him over. All he wants is to get his girlfriend back.Read more ›

The first time I saw this film, I thought the parts in Hawaii were a bit long, and Caan's character a bit typical, but the second time I watched it, I didn't care. This film is funny, ironic, and, even if you don't like those things, it's got some great shots of Hawaii. We follow Nicholas Cage as he goes from paranoid about being married to losing his girlfriend in a poker game, and then goes to Hawaii to find her, misses her by about two seconds, and has to fly to Vegas with a group of Flying Elvises (of course, he's got to also jump out of a plane dressed like Elvis to get to Vegas, as the plane itself lands in Denver, or something like that). Critics say this film runs out of laughs. I say, it gains laughs, and there's a plot, too. Can someone tell me why this film is not in print!

I thought this movie was really funny and Peter Boyle's scene is side hurting funny. Sarah Jessica's body is smokin' in this film too!

One romantic comedy often overlooked by fans of cinema is Honeymoon In Vegas, a light-hearted, feel-good movie about two lovers overwhelmed by the temptations of Las Vegas. A relatively early film in the careers of both Nicholas Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker, Honeymoon In Vegas should have been early indicator to audiences everywhere that these two would become Hollywood mainstays. Along with celebrated industry veteran James Caan (who plays a surprisingly similar role on the present TV show Las Vegas), the three combine to create an interesting, if not extremely hilarious, storyline which adds a new twist to the traditional conflict of the love triangle...

Jack Singer (Nicholas Cage) is forever haunted by a deathbed promise he made to his mother, giving his word that he would never get married. But the promise threatens to end his relationship with long-time girlfriend and true love Betsy (Sarah Jessica Parker). So Jack proposes and the couple decides to race off to Las Vegas and get married. However, their trip to Vegas is soon interrupted when Jack is set up in a poker game by professional gambler Tommy Korman (James Caan).

With a single hand of poker, Jack loses $65,000 to Korman who promises to forgive the debt in exchange for a single weekend with his fiancée Betsy. Initially outraged at the setup, Jack sees the proposed solution as a way out of the debt, so he convinces Betsy to go along with the idea. But Jack soon becomes horribly jealous and changes his mind. When he goes to find Betsy, he's forced to fight against Korman and his minions who have arranged to keep Jack away permanently.
