For those of you who are like me in the sense that Las Vegas is your vacation destination of choice, I recommend you watch "Vegas Vacation" with Chevy Chase.
Even if you're not a big fan of the "Vacation" movies, this one does give a lot of good looks at Vegas during the mid to late '90's, including some of the older hotels and also including a great scene at the Hoover Dam, from back in the days before they restricted the tours. Back then, you could tour the entire inside of the dam, and Vegas Vacation will give those of you have haven't done that a glimpse as to what the tunnels inside the dam look like.
A bonus of the movie is that it's a funny movie, even if it is kind of corny. I love the way Cousin Eddie pans out as a character. There are also some great scenes about the "dive" casinos where Clark and Eddie go and play some of the silliest casino games for low stakes...you just have to see it to appreciate it.
For those of you who have seen it, maybe you can back me up on this one - what do you think? Maybe also share your favorite thing about the movie, or a favorite scene, etc...
