Plot summary

(2 votes)

Ben's life is tanking and the final straw is when he gets fired. Already admittedly an alcoholic, he drives to Las Vegas to drink himself to death with the last of his money. He meets a hooker named Sera who's lonely and asks him to move in with her. He does - on the condition she never asks him to stop drinking. She doesn't. They never have sex because he's always too drunk. She kicks him out when she finds him with another hooker in her apartment.

Mistakes

Moving out to Sera, Ben is packing his things in a motel. You can see a half full glass standing on a bed table on his left. In the next shot Ben is pouring alcohol to an EMPTY glass filling it in 1/3 approx. In the next scene glass is half full again and in the next one - FULL. Eventually he is drinking from a glass full of alcohol.

Trivia

Nicholas Cage and Elizabeth Shue were so dedicated to the film that she interviewed several real Las Vegas prostitutes while he went on a drinking binge to experience what might happen to his cognition and speech patterns.
