wheres the gambling?
25 July 2000 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie recently on cable and I was disappointed. Besides the fact I expected SOME gambling (there is basically none), there was nothing in the characters or story that kept me interested. Only die-hard Vic Mature fans should bother with this one.
