Welcome to the Montecito Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, where you can do anything you want, but Ed Deline and his crack surveillance team will be watching. Just remember: what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
A tale of greed, deception, money, power, and murder occur between two best friends: a mafia enforcer and a casino executive, compete against each other over a gambling empire, and over a fast living and fast loving socialite.
After earning 00 status and a licence to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007. Bond must defeat a private banker funding terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro.
I've been to Vegas a bunch of times and love it, and I watch all the Vegas shows on Discovery, Travel Channel, etc., because they're interesting. When I saw this was coming on I figured I'd watch it, and for some reason I got hooked. The thing is- I don't know why! While the two owners are OK, the other featured people from the Nugget wouldn't last 10 minutes in the real world. Matt Dusk sings well, but really sounds more like a Sinatra wannabe. But he has a very inflated idea of his own worth. If he'd have done an end run around his immediate supervisor to the head guy of a company like he did to the entertainment director of the place he'd be out on his ass. Plus, he wants to play the showroom, but can't darw flies to see him in the lounge. Tommy, the host trainee, is just not too bright. I could never see him keeping a job, much less getting promoted, at a job that wasn't a TV show. How these "guests" of the casino all end up with suites at a Vegas casino is beyond me- it's all got to be staged.
