Create one now! rocketlauncherboy 2 years I agree with her until the point she says that this doesn't have story. That's not true at all. Its not about Paul Kemp (johnny) drinking day in and day out. That's what Roaming in Vegas was about. In this film Kemp even says he'll never drink again, and even though that just foreshadows his future of him being an outrageous alcoholic. that isn't the focus of the film. I'm disappointed Shannon failed to see the brilliance in the plot of a man who looks past the glamor and paradise of Puerto Rico and sees the poor society within the island and notices the evil corporate businesses trying to build vacation resorts and condos for the rich. And how can you say Amber Heard adds nothing to the story? She's the reason Kemp decides not to join Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart) you know the business man you didn't even mention in your review. These are important plot points you lazy brush away by trying to trick your viewers into thinking this was the same movie Vegas was back in the day which I agree has no plot. For shame Buzz Sugar by not checking the facts and letting this review be acceptable. I give this movie a must see. and especially if your a Fan of Hunter S Thompson.
