Since then, most of Cage’s cinematic contributions have included voice work in animated films and roles in straight-to-VOD garbage like last year’s A Score to Settle and Running with the Devil. Instead of torturing yourself with one of those, why not revisit one of his earlier films instead? No, it’s not one of his best pre-Oscar movies, but 1992’s Honeymoon in Vegas has its moments.
Cage stars as Jack Singer, a private eye who loses $65,000 in a poker game to a pro gambler (James Caan), who promises to wipe away the debt if Jack lets him spend the weekend with his fiancée (Sarah Jessica Parker). Keep your eyes open for a 7-year-old Bruno Mars, who cameos as “Little Elvis” singing “Can’t Help Falling in Love” onstage.
Free, Thursday, Feb. 20, 9 p.m., Oak Hills Tavern, 7920 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 614-8855, facebook.com/thevideodungeon.
