Honeymoon in Vegas (Blu-ray Review)

James Caan (The Godfather), Nicolas Cage (Face/Off) and Sarah Jessica Parker (“Sex in the City”) are three sides of a deliriously funny triangle that gambles with an off beat premise and hits the jackpot with big laughs!  Jack Singer (Cage) is terrified of commitment but even more terrified of losing his beautiful school teacher fiancée […]
