In an old school Las Vegas casino, its top gambling jinx breaks his curse when he falls in love, much to his boss' consternation.
The movie is based near Fremont street, which is now known as the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas. It's the original Las Vegas casino area before the strip was developed. Only the aerial exterior shots were filmed in Las Vegas. The majority of the location shots were all filmed in Reno, Nevada.
Where's Bernie, they're killing us. Yeah, we need him right away.
When Bernie is unlucky at the blackjack table, an empty table is shown with the cigarette butts quickly accumulating in the ashtray. However, this would imply there were people at the table for a long period of time, which wouldn't have been the case if people weren't winning.
Maria Bello's face is reflected on the side of the "Lady Luck" hotel.
The film was cut by the MPAA to achieve an R rating.
