Audience Reviews for Luckytown

½

Seems writer Brendan Beseth had never heard of the old adage "write what you know" as this is as artificial a gambling movie as you're likely to find. Prime example is the laughable lone cardplaying scene where two old nemeses play for $300,000. One of them owns a swank nightclub which affords plenty of privacy, but for some unknown reason they meet in a dingy, sweaty boxing gym after hours. Then, the showdown is over after one hand! The script is equally poor in trying to force a phony love-hate relationship between two road-tripping youths where you get to decide who is the bigger douche. Is it Kirsten Dunst whose intentionally erratic driving leaves them stranded in the Nevada desert? Or is it Vincent Kartheiser who gambles away their money (after being up $40,000) and also neglects to inform her that he found her father, the reason she came to Las Vegas? Match a bad script with some subpar performances and you're drawing dead, only James Caan, Robert Miano, and Luis Guzman display any faint conviction in the material. Theresa Russell's role is over before her name even appears in the opening credits! Similarly, Luckytown craps out early.
