Excellent example of how compulsive gambling begins.
9 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film provides an excellent example of how the addiction of compulsive/pathological gambling begins. The film provided true to life situations that are common and could lead a person to become addicted to gambling. The story line provided true to life consequences of compulsive gambling. This film went beyond entertainment. A good choice for those who want to learn about the disease of compulsive gambling. What the film did not address was how to treat the problem of compulsive gambling.
