Now to delve into one of the deepest mysteries in the world--why a movie shoots right to the top of the box-office standings on the very first weekend it's released. The movie: "Honeymoon in Vegas." The money: A $7.3-million gross in its first weekend out, knocking off Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven" from the No. 1 spot. The question: Why? Was it the cast?
