THE BEST MOVIE OF THE CENTURY!
3 June 1999 | by (Perth Amboy, NJ) – See all my reviews

How do I put into words my love for this film?

Dabney Coleman was superb, a milestone performance. Bob Golthwait shines as the protagonist of this cinematic marvel. And the incomparable John Candy...his voice-overs are breathtaking in their complexity.

Forget all the so-called "great films." Those are child's play compared to this gripping indictment of the gambling industry and one man's dedication to his friend, and his principles.

We can only wait with baited breath for Hot to Trot II: Don Eats An Apple. I hope that Hollywood has the good sense to make it soon, and the budget to make it a fitting tribute to its vaunted predecessor
