Oh SyFy, are there even words to describe how much I adore your offerings? I’m not sure I can find just the right words to even begin to proclaim my love of your silly so silly and oh so fun movies. The latest being Blast Vegas, of course. *sighs* Such movie perfection. Such movie actors – Frankie Muniz (so THIS is where he went off to!) and Barry Bostwick (man, do I ever love you, Barry!!). Just *sighs*.
Seriously, though this movie is ALL sorts of cray cray fun! This group of college kids goes to Las Vegas on spring break, dragging along one Frankie Muniz and one Andrew Lawrence (and oh, did he ever get that cutie gene like his bros did!). Frankie’s all “I don’t want to be here” and “Who puts ketchup on a hot dog??” (is that a weird thing? I don’t eat hot dogs but I thought people DID put ketchup on them?). Meanwhile, they meet a group of girls including one Olive who was also dragged along and would rather be studying ancient history than partying. She and Frankie meet and it’s almost love at first sight. *le sigh*
And then you have Barry Bostwick as the gin loving, piano playing Vegas singer whose been around the block more than a few times.
But really our story starts with Phil, the SendEx guy who gets robbed and pistol whipped at the very beginning of the movie by two guys who want a precious piece of cargo he’s carting to one casino – an ancient sword. The robbing doesn’t go very well as once the pair of baddies start driving away, a dust storm tears them to pieces then dumps the sword right back by pistol whipped Phil, who apparently goes ahead and delivers it because next time we see it, it’s in said casino. Damn, those SendEx guys are good! Robbed, pistol whipped and you STILL manage to get your delivery in on time??
Next, comes our spring breakers and boys being boys, Andrew Lawrence and the gang, minus Frankie steal the sword and go stick it in the dirt out back. Now, did I mention this sword has an Egyptian curse attached to it?? But then, don’t they all? Anywho, sword in dirt, sword not come out of dirt, boys go back to partying. Boys not too bright.
What follows is an epic dust storm – actually a snakedustnado (a dust tornado made up of dust snakes) that wreaks havoc on Las Vegas while people die left and right and our spring breakers plus Barry look on in despair…will our gang survive? Will they be able to break the curse? Is it really and truly up to Frankie Muniz from “Malcolm in the Middle” to save the day???
Well, boys and girls, I guess you’ll just have to watch and see for yourself the epicness that is “Blast Vegas”! 😉

Looks hilarious yet awesomely awful. Have not seen Muniz in ages…
I think he’s been driving race cars till now. And yes hilarious AND awesomely awful! Sooooo deliciously bad it’s good!
Oh, that is what was keeping him busy, interesting! Maybe I should give this a shot. I listened to your advice once before with American Mary, and you were right, so why not?
Why not? 🙂 So long as you keep in mind that this is one of those so bad it’s funny movies and don’t take it too seriously!
I do eat hot dogs and I do put ketchup on them as well as mustard, relish, chili and sometimes coleslaw. Some people do, some people don’t. By the way, “Who puts ketchup on a hot dog?” is an echo of Eastwood as Dirty Harry saying to a colleague “No one puts ketchup on a hot dog.”
Oh!! So there WAS a point to that line. Thank you!!! I honestly had no idea and thought it was sooo random for him to say that, lol.
You’re welcome. I think the line was used in Sudden Impact.
Why does Frankie have Ed Grimley hair?
*giggles* I have no idea but it totally works for him here.

Misty Layne – this sounds TERRIBLE!!!! Like, TOTES.
BTW – I LOVE hot dogs and, like Homer Simpson said, they’re even better when you can taste the hog anus. I like mine with mustard, chili and onions. YUM.
Ewwww, E…!!!! So gross. Hog anus. BLEHCK. Thanks for that image. ;-p
