How about "Honeymoon in Vegas"? If you're going to include "Con Air," how about one in which Nic Cage is intentionally funny? No "Casino"? No "Bugsy"? No "Las Vegas" (the tv series)? And no "Viva Las Vegas"? Are you against everything that is good and noble?

I've seen alternative interpretation of Showgirls as subversive criticism of Hollywood. But I'm not convinced :)

Honestly it's a good movie in my opinion. Not the first time a Verhoeven movie has been hated on release and then appraised years later, either (cough Starship Troopers cough)

If anything the prices on "Pawn Stars" are very unrealistically high, not low. Though it's not nearly as bad as American Pickers. Sad that this channel used to be pretty good and now it's got five or six shows about hicks buying, selling, or fighting over garbage.

I live in the country and I've inherited a few farm antiques so would I be considered a hick? My problem with American Pickers is that they don't make clear people should have permission to look through those "abandoned" buildings. We've caught far too many people over the years saying, "I didn't figure anybody wanted this stuff," as they were walking to their trucks with farm antiques and even good, working equipment from our outbuildings. They could have found out for certain if they'd taken the time to knock on our door and ask, but I assume they were afraid the answer would be no.

The show is completely, entirely, 100% staged (one of my main issues with the show). So... rest assured they've got permission.

Those would be regular thieves. Pill head / heroin thieves in rural areas get away with it unseen for a long time before getting caught and crying their way out of it in court.

It's so sad that Oscar overlooked Cage's other Las Vegas movie. He deserved recognition for that role for his accent work alone.

Couldn't remember the title of Indecent Proposal but I could've sworn it had either Richard Gere, Michael Douglas, or Glenn Close, so when I racked by brain for movies with any of those three in it and couldn't come up with the title, I was totally baffled. Turns out none of them are in it.

Quizmaster: Maybe add a note that says "(Note: neither Richard Gere, Michael Douglas, nor Glenn Close are in this film)" ?

Viva Las Vegas would be a good one. I don't think the term would be synonymous with the city without the movie or the song attached to it.

There shouldn't be editorializing in the clues; it feels really crass, especially considering "Showgirls" has gained a rather positive critical reputation over the years.

You should add the movie Rat Race (2000)
