A gang of men disguise themselves as Elvis impersonators, roll into a Vegas casino during an Elvis convention, and rob the joint. Unfortunately, the most evil member of the gang, Murphy, gets greedy and decides to kill the rest of the men after the heist. However, one of them survives, and gets to the hidden loot first. The survivor finds that he has to share the money with a single mom and her larcenous young son, who have decided to come along for the ride.
This movie is very violent and bloody, and has no redeeming qualities. The son of the single mom is exposed to all kinds of vices that the adults participate in; it’s no wonder the kid steals and uses bad language too. There isn’t much sex, but what’s there is pretty blatant. Stealing is also presented as a glamorous thing to do, especially if you can get away with it.
Don’t waste your time on this one, and definitely keep all kids and teens from seeing it. While all of the characters are bad, the Murphy character is someone you would never want to meet in daylight, let alone on the screen in a movie theater or at home on your VCR.
