Honeymoon In Vegas (1992)

When his long-suffering schoolteacher girlfriend Betsy (Sarah Jessica Parker) threatens to leave him if he doesn’t marry her, small-time gumshoe Jack Singer (Nicolas Cage) breaks a promise he made to his dying mother that he would never wed, and proposes.

But when the two arrive in Las Vegas for the quickie ceremony, Jack loses Betsy for a weekend to crooked professional gambler Tommy Korman (James Caan) after a game of poker.

Initially disgusted, Betsy becomes captivated by Korman, leaving Jack having to fight to win her back.

Director Andrew Bergman remains a much-underrated talent and expertly blends the classic elements of farce with a healthy dash of eccentricity to produce a delightful comedy.

Bergman largely steers clear of the gloopy sentimentality that mars so many other romantic comedies and stages a stunning finale with parachuting Elvis impersonators.

There are also some fine supporting performances from the distinguished cast, which includes Anne Bancroft, Peter Boyle, and Seymour Cassel.
