Nicolas Cage is a gambler whose about to get married to Sarah Jessica Parker in Sin City, but loses her in a game of poker to shady mobster James Caan. He chases after her around town, assisted by skydiving Elvis impersonators in one particular scene, in a desperate attempt to win her back.
A similar plot was used in the following year's Indecent Proposal (qv), and while this film clearly took a more farcical approach, it's by far a much better film, despite not being fantastic. An easy-going comedy sketch.
