How widely-accepted is "What do you got?" to Americans?

Watching A Stranger Among Us, I noticed that Melanie Griffith twice asked

"What do you got?"

I recognise this as an American construction which sounds strange to me - Brits invariably say either "What have you got?" or "What do you have?". But I'd be interested to know if it's considered "normal" by most/all Americans, or if it's regionally or otherwise restricted.
