We haven't seen Saint John Of Las Vegas yet, but the cast is awful promising, so when we were offered an exclusive clip from the flick, we figured: Why not? First, a studio-approved synopsis. Oh, and it opens Jan. 29 in New York and L.A., then goes wider Feb. 12.

Synopsis: After a run of bad luck, John (Steve Buscemi), a compulsive gambler, runs away from Las Vegas and toward a normal job and life.  Taking a nondescript position in an auto insurance company in Albuquerque, he tries to get ahead in the straight world, amid the ever-present temptations of scratch-off lotto tickets. When his boss, Mr. Townsend (Peter Dinklage), asks John to accompany his top fraud debunker, Virgil (Romany Malco) on an investigation of a dubious car “accident” near Vegas, John sees an opportunity to get a promotion , though he’s concerned about  returning to the gambling game. Before  leaving he becomes involved with his eccentric co-worker Jill (Sarah Silverman), a dalliance that has the potential to become a real relationship.
