Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and here at Crazy Shenanigans that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! Each week I pick a movie that I've watched and feature it. About 99% of the time it's something available on dvd to watch, buy, rent or stream. Every now and then I'll throw in a movie that's currently in the Theaters. When I first started doing Theater Thursday's (since I first started blogging in 08), I use to have it as a link up. I stopped because not that many people were posting then linking back up. However, due to recent requests from a few people it's a link up again! Sooo... join in the fun. Link up and post about a movie you love to watch and think others should see too. Grab the button on the sidebar! It's fun! 

This week's featured movie is, Honeymoon In Vegas.
Honeymoon In Vegas stars Nicolas Cage as Jack Singer. On Jack's mothers death bed, she makes Jack promise to never get married. Then of course she dies. 

Jack (Cage) is scarred and his girlfriend, Betsy (Sarah Jessica Parker) is upset because of his lack of commitment towards her. She wants to get married and Jack doesn't want to go back on his promise to his mother. Finally wearing him down, Betsy and Jack decide to get married and head to Vegas to tie the knot. 

Once Jack and Betsy get to Vegas they run into millionaire Tommy Korman (James Caan) who instantly falls in love with Betsy and has to have her. He believes Betsy is the spitting image of Donna, his deceased wife. He lures Jack into a high stakes poker game and during that game Jack becomes 64,000 in debt to him. Tommy, who knows that Jack doesn't have that kind of money decides that Jack can clear his debt to him by letting him spend the weekend with Betsy. 

Jack doesn't have too many options so he tells Betsy about the arrangement and she agrees to get Jack out of trouble. From the moment Betsy starts the weekend with Tommy, Tommy has no intention of ever letting her go back to Jack. He decides to show her everything he can give her. Will Jack and Betsy make it to the alter? Watch!
