Mel Gibson chasing the poker dream in the Old West.
Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Alfred Molina, James Garner
Set in the American old West, a poker shark (Mel Gibson) attempts to raise enough money to enter a $25,000 poker tournament and has many adventures along the way.
An extremely fun action-comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster are excellent.
There’s some pretty cringe-worthy racism in this movie. When Mel Gibson’s character meets the main villain (a Mexican, played by Alfred Molina) he narrates: ‘As soon as I saw him I smelled trouble…and refried beans’. 1994 was a different time.
Watch this one for the fun light-hearted action comedy, not for the poker.
Watching poker is great, but wouldn’t you rather be playing? Play free poker.
