About the Movie

Academy Award(R) winner Matt Damon (GOOD WILL HUNTING, Best Original Screenplay, 1997; THE BOURNE SUPREMACY) and Edward Norton (THE ITALIAN JOB) star in this story of passion, risk, and the extreme price of friendship! After losing a high-stakes card game, Mike (Damon) gives up gambling for law school and a fresh start with his girlfriend (Gretchen Mol -- CRADLE WILL ROCK). But then his best buddy (Norton) gets out of prison and in over his head with a ruthless card shark (John Malkovich -- BEING JOHN MALKOVICH). From there, Mike's strong sense of loyalty –- and the lure of the game -– draw him back to the tables in a game he cannot afford to lose! Also starring John Turturro (O BROTHER, WHERE ARE THOU?) and Oscar(R) winner Martin Landau (ED WOOD, Best Supporting Actor, 1994).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mischievously entertaining! – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: In fighting to show the psychological complexities in Mike that the script ignores, Damon plays it like a rounder instead of a grinder. This kid still has surprises up his sleeve. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Mar 25, 2008

Rotten: Intermittently engaging but dramatically slack. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Feb 23, 2012

Fresh: Rounders cheerfully buys into compulsive gambling! – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010
