Amusing romcom in the Vegas area with Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry RELEASED IN 1997 and directed by Andy Tennant, "Fools Rush In” is a romantic dramedy about a casual night of passion between a successful New Yorker (Matthew Perry) and a Mexican immigrant (Salma Hayek), but they learn that love is more than a Vegas marriage & an Elvis impersonator when dealing with conflicting families and traditions. This is a generally amusing “chick flick” focusing on Gringo/Latino relations, albeit formulaic. Some jokes fall flat, but they’re well intended. Perry makes for a likable male protagonist while Salma Hayek is winsome in her physical prime; and Suzanne Snyder in secondary role is nothing to sneeze at. Meanwhile Jon Tenney appears as the protagonist’s best friend. The Las Vegas area locations are picturesque. THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour, 49 minutes and was shot in Nevada/Arizona (Las Vegas, Henderson, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and Grand Canyon) and Rancho de las Golondrinas, New Mexico (standing in for central Mexico).
