Three-dimensional characters inhabit a fantasy world in this episodic, but engaging drama that centers around the world of professional poker; the love story barely works, but fans of the game will find plenty to absorb. Favorite Scene: Eric Bana bets he can run several miles and then play 18-holes of golf and finish under par within a few hours. Final Grade: B

This is by far one of the worst films I've seen in a very long time! Eric Bana is almost painful to watch in this role and Drew Barrymore does a wonderful job of keeping her reputation of not being able to act up. This movie made me completely annoyed in the pretentious way it tried to come off as if poker is this amazing underground past time filled with thugs, hard asses and dramatic moments. Do yourself a favor and stay away!

I liked this film but I can't give this movie a three stars out of four stars because there were more than a handful of scenes that dragged on which resulted to a two-hour running time. This is not your typical romantic comedy that was portrayed in the trailers. Instead, this film is about a man's addiction to poker and how he ruins his life and those people's lives that choose to associate with him. The poker scenes were absorbing because I'm a poker fan (although I'm not an expert). Eric Bana, Drew Barrymore, and Robert Duvall did the best they could with what they've been given. Still, I thought they could've done more with Debra Messing's character because she looks great and I miss her from "Will and Grace." With a little bit more editing and taking off scenes that are unnecessary …

Not a good movie. In a world where you can't watch ESPN 2 for more than 5 minutes without seeing at least part of a World Poker Tour... this movie acts like it's introducing poker to the world for the first time. For those of you who know nothing about poker? Don't worry, they waste two hours of your life trying to teach you about poker all the while forgetting that movies aren't supposed to suck. It's time for someone to tell Drew Barrymore the truth. America loves you too much to tell you your acting ability peaked in E.T. Now to the (small) credit of the performers there were spurts of decent acting and storyline that gave this movie some legs. Albeit they were those fat, stubby dwarf legs that you find intriguing enough to stare at but don't really want to.
