Storyline

Three friends have two things in common: (1) they like to bet on the horses at the track, and (2) they invariably lose. One day they hit upon a scheme to steal one of the track's betting machines, so that they'd be able to print winning tickets and recoup the money they've lost over the years. However, things don't go exactly as planned. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

This nag never gets out of the starting gate .........
9 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With a cast of extraordinary character actors, I just had to see for myself how this could be rated such a bomb. After enduring the entire painfully slow 88 minutes, I can unfortunately confirm that the stellar cast is badly wasted. When you have the likes of Dean Stockwell, Russ Tamblyn, Alex Karras, Harry Dean Stanton, Scatman Crothers, and William Smith, how could things go so terribly wrong? Well, half the movie is so under lit that it is just voices in the dark. The editing is a chop shop job. Mostly however it is the meaningless chatter, and scenes that go on way beyond their welcome that sinks "Win, Place, or Steal". Other than the original idea of a caper involving stealing a race track tote machine, this nag never gets out of the starting gate. Beware ! - MERK
