A psychologist and a gangster team-up at the poker table.
The premise is intriguing enough, and Joe Mantegna is always great, but that’s really all there is to say about the positive aspects of this film.
Let’s make a deal. I won’t waste my time writing too much about this terrible movie and you don’t waste your time actually watching it, okay? After the interesting premise and the presence of the great Joe Mantegna, there is absolutely nothing good to say. The defining characteristics of this film are wooden acting, dialogue that feels as if it were written by a high school student and completely unauthentic poker moments. Just stay away.
I mean, they pronounce the word ‘poker’ correctly. Does that count? Again, stay away.
Watching poker is great, but wouldn’t you rather be playing? Play free poker.
