What Happens in Vegas....

Ladies night last evening for tapas, sangria and a movie was a perfect way to spend a cold Tuesday night. The fact that the film was better than the last one I saw was great (The Other Boleyn Girl, thumbs down!) We saw "21" with Jim Sturgess, Kate Bosworth, Kevin Spacey and a very funny guy who played the geeky best friend. The film is based on the book, Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six MIT Students Who Took Vegas for Millions by Ben Mezrich. I started the book a few years ago, never finished it but might go back and try again now that I have seen the film. Hollywood added some typical fictionalized drama, characters and a love story but it all makes for an entertaining movie. I found an interesting article about the real life woman Kate Bosworth potrays in the film here:
