Critic Review - Chicago Reader

Gretchen Mol, Edward Norton, John Turturro, Martin Landau, and Famke Janssen costar; they're all pretty good, but not good enough to make this 1998 feature worth seeing.

It's only the best poker ever!!! It's amazing, a true classic even 10 years later.

Every character in this movie is believable and engaging. What I fear sir is that you have no ability to allow yourself to fall into a movie. If you let yourself accept this movie for what it is you are riveted. Perhaps this movie does have some flaws but its fairly accurate from a poker stand point. Non one wins a hand with a straight flush and the terminology is dead on. Even John Malkovich's awful accent is fantastic. Because you make yourself believe these characters are real. I suggest taking a class in Not Taking Movies Too Seriously 101. I think you will find more movies entertaining!
