Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
One wishes what happened in Vegas would have stayed in Vegas in this 75-minute comedy-drama from playwright Morwyn Brebner in which two couples, one married and the other about to be married, mix it up in one long night’s journey into tedium.
Chick (Karl Eckstrand) is a car salesman hoping three times will be lucky as he prepares to get hitched with undiscriminating dealership receptionist Teenie (Leslie Boardman). Chick’s buddy Doug (Martin Wilson) is an oncologist intent on some kind of vague mischief until his frosty psychiatrist wife Margie (Jennifer Gottwald) arrives to put a damper on the party.
It’s not explained why a contemporary Vegas honeymoon suite is furnished like a Winnipeg Beach cabin, but then much is inexplicable here, including why we would be interested in this quartet of unpleasant, not very interesting characters.
