The musical follows Jack Singer (McClure) working up the nerve to get hitched to his girlfriend Betsy (O'Malley) in Las Vegas, only to have the relationship threatened by smooth talking gambler Tommy Korman (Danza), who falls head over heels for her.

Nicolas Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker played the couple in the 1992 Castle Rock Entertainment comedy, while James Caan played the high roller with his eye on the girl.
