The Cooler is too earnest a morality tale, saddled with derivative characters, to heat up much sympathy or interest.

William H. Macy is the ultimate loser and Alec Baldwin is an old school casino boss in director Wayne Kramer's near-perfect feature debut.

The Las Vegas Kramer portrays in The Cooler is one that's derived from Scorsese but the wonderful, queasy mixture of violence and humor is Kramer's own.

Macy proves himself leading man material once again in The Cooler- even if he gets the show nearly stolen out from under him by Alec Baldwin.
