Honeymoon in Vegas (1992)

James Caan completism. This one made many lists of his movies to check out. It's a dog. Everyone (probably including Sarah Jessica Parker) was better elsewhere; Nicolas Cage is always better in something else. Anne Bancroft plays his mother. Notionally a comedy but really about how Ms Parker learns that she is worth a lot more than $1 million. It's not funny.

Roger Ebert: three-and-a-half stars. Also a big thumbs up from Vincent Canby.
