Top of the World is a 1997 film directed by Sidney J. Furie and starring Peter Weller, Dennis Hopper and Tia Carrere. It also featured David Alan Grier, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Peter Coyote and Joe Pantoliano. The plot is set in Las Vegas.


In Las Vegas for a quickie divorce, a just-paroled ex-cop and his wife wander into the Cowboy Country Casino, run by the shady Charles Atlas. They win big, right as the casino is being robbed. The police believe their big win was a staged diversion, and the two of them become suspects. Over the course of the evening and next morning, the two attempt to escape the surrounded casino and prove their innocence, as well as save their marriage.
