“I’m glad you liked Lucky You,” the Las Vegas Review Journal‘s Carol Cling wrote earlier today. “As I did. It’s one of the few Las Vegas movies to accurately capture the feel of living here — especially the contrast between glitzy vs. gritty, older neighborhoods vs. shiny new suburbs.
“But it’s an indication of how fast things move in this town that many of the things that are in the movie have changed. Including the Aladdin, which became Planet Hollywood Resort a week or so ago, and Binion’s Horseshoe, which is no longer the Horseshoe — just Binion’s — and no longer hosts the World Series of Poker.
“Also: I tracked the Lucky You production in my weekly ‘Shooting Stars’ column, which covers movie and TV location work here. According to my archives, the reshoots took place the week of Nov. 28, 2005. The original shoot took place March 28-May 6, 2005.”
