'Honeymoon in Vegas'

This 1992 release proves one more time that when it comes to modern screen comedy, writer-director Andrew Bergman is nothing less than the emperor of the absurd. Nicolas Cage (pictured) stars as a private eye who elopes to Las Vegas with second-grade teacher Sarah Jessica Parker (pictured), who unfortunately is the very image of the beloved dead wife of James Caan, a big-time gambler who will do anything to get her to marry him (TMC Tuesday at 4 p.m.; Wednesday at 5:45 a.m. and Friday at 9 p.m.).
