Deal

Critics Consensus

Employing multiple cinematic clichs and milking stale performances, Deal proves inadequate for even the lowly regarded poker movie genre.

    entertaining enough story, in some way familier to the film 21, but without the double crossing, this is more inocent, and of course the game poker is played here instead of 21, a game i dont understand. but reynolds is charming enough, and although a shadow of his former self, its nice to see

    Another card shark movie...where the aging teacher eventually takes the student to school...in more ways than just cards...it is good whether you like the card game of poker or not...see this it is a good watch!

    First off. I love poker and texas hold em', so this bad review is not for my lack of interest in the game. It's just a really boring, predictable and uninteresting film. The hack of a director has totally missed to capture the exitment of the game. Face upon face are presented with a poker term and thats it. Rase, fold, bla, bla, bla... You'll guess how it will end at about half of the film. So if you are a friend of poker and love the game.. Skip this one!!

    Deal centers around a aging poker player played really good by a ageing Burt Reynolds who never fullfilled his dream of winning the big one and the young kid just out of college he takes under his wing showing him the ins and outs of the poker world that is untill student and teacher go up against each other in a winner take all world series of poker. really good movie worth checking out for those that enjoyed Rounders
