Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Best to say as little as possible, cut one's losses and move on.
Rotten: Frivolous fun at best, archly affected tedium at worst.
Rotten: What has happened to director Stephen Frears?
Rotten: A wan comedy about gambling that takes no risks ...
Still Worth Watching!
They really made Rebecca Hall overly dumbed down and simple, and I can see why it wasn't released in the theaters. I can see why it got slammed by the critics, and it is definitely not worth a $20 purchase price (when it's for sale) since it's the type of movie you'd only watch once. But it was still a good movie! A quick, fun escape, and enjoyable. Even at her worst, Rebecca Hall is awesome, and Bruce Willis is Bruce Willis and was a great addition to the film. I almost didn't rent it because of the reviews, but if you're looking for something new to enjoy for an hour and a half, this is a fun movie to watch.
Not nearly as bad as the critics make it out to be. Take the movie for what it is, worth watching.
Sportsbook junkie classic!
Great movie, shows how sports booking is done Vegas style!
