A good Saturday matinée watcher

I always like to consider the mood I was in before I started watching any movie and the mood I am left in after the movie ends. There are movies such as in the case with Venus & Vegas that I find leave me with that satisfied feeling of coming out of the movie theater on a Saturday afternoon. It is simple in plot, moves along at a steady pace, has numerous characters (some you like, and some you don't) and with pockets of silly humor that lighten my thoughts to consider "life should be simple".

The movie consists of a good cast with actors Eddie Kaye Thomas, Donald Faison, and Eddie Guerra as three buddies who devise a get rich scheme to rob a Las Vegas warehouse of fake gambling chips that just happens to be owned by a mobster played by character actor Joe Polito.

Of course the three main characters have women coming in and out of their lives and these actresses not only make good eye candy but hold their own strong character portrayals which adds good content and more humor to the movie. The girlfriends are played by Molly Sims, Roselyn Sanchez and Jaime Pressly.

Another good performance was also played by Abraham Benrubi as Bruno, the muscle for Jon Polito's mobster character Frank. With lots of action and miscues and lots of interesting characters I quite enjoyed Venus & Vegas and I will make sure to watch it again when I need to forget about everything and escape in to a good mood for 95 minutes.

Not Too Good

Lots missing in this movie. Has a pretty good cast but was just lacking. The story didn't develop like I wanted it to. Lots of weird things happening with the directing. I guess it was also too much crime, and not much Vegas style things going on.

Might be worth a watch.

WORLD'S LARGEST GIFT SHOP

Eric (Eddie Guerra), Stu (Donald Faison) and Alex (Eddie Kaye Thomas) play three likeable second story men. Eric is in love with Tara (Jaime Pressly) who has left him for someone else. Stu is thinking about marrying his girlfriend (Roselyn Sanchez) who doesn't know is pregnant. Alex bets on horses and lives at home with his oversexed grandmother (Florence Henderson).

The guys get phone calls at inopportune moments. They eventually rob a crime boss and things don't go as planned.

The film has all the makings of a good comedy, but failed to deliver. The jokes and comedy were mostly stale. Second tier rental at best.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex. Male rear nudity. G-string nudity.
