How to gamble for a living
22 February 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Robbie Box is a heavy gambler, whose luck goes from the highs to the lowest depths. His girlfriend, Jan and daughter Debby stick by him for much of the way, but eventually leave for Australia only to come back. Robbie wins a club in a card game which itself is lost also in a card game. This is classic British comedy/drama at its best.
