We don’t call Las Vegas the Entertainment Capital of the World just for the glitz and glamour that you find along the strip; there are so many timeless films that have been made in the City of Sin.
Forget the tiresome flights, bad airplane food, and scorching desert heat, and bring the buzz of Vegas into your own home with the resorts casino bonus code.
Now, without further ado, let’s dive into some of the greatest movies set in Las Vegas, from side-splitting comedies to the most, and clever heists you’ve ever seen.
A soon-to-be groom and his friends take a trip to the City, and just about every Vegas stereotype you can think of takes place. The extreme bachelor party-gone-wrong plot is utterly hilarious, no matter how cliché, and will no doubt remain a classic for years to come. It features a cameo from Mike Tyson, a sneak peek into the luxurious Caesar’s Palace, and much more.
A Las Vegas movie roundup wouldn’t be complete without the daddy of all heist movies: Oceans 11. Danny Ocean and his crew devise an impossible plan as they plot to rob three high profile Vegas casinos, simultaneously. It’s a wonderfully unrealistic, adult fairy-tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Not only is the story incredible, but the cast is also one of the movies strength’s, with main characters like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
When Peter La Fleur’s (Vince Vaughn) gym is threatened with foreclosure, him and his oddball dodgeball team travel to the City of Lights to compete in a dodgeball tournament. It’s a classic underdog film, where you get to watch a group of misfits fight against a corporate gym in order to keep their own independent gym in business.
Diamonds and Forever
The 7th film in the thrilling James Bond series, and arguably one of Sean Connery’s best. In this film, Bond is seeking out diamond smugglers, whilst the audience follows him around the most glamorous of Vegas hotels. Can you think of a better setting for a James Bond film than the thrill, and wealth of Las Vegas?
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
A grotesque (and slightly less common) portrayal of Las Vegas, that seems to hate everything that the City stands for. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a super dark comedy that has garnered a cult following, that grows year by year. The film follows a journalist and a lawyer as they journey through the desert in a convertible full of drugs – both of them chasing the elusive American dream.
