An average kind of guy who has a slight problem with gambling goes to the track, and mystically, it seems as though he can't lose, no matter how he bets; and he has an incredible day. Written by
I love Richard Dreyfuss the 1st film I saw him in was Jaws I think in 1974 or something, he was 23 or so.In this particular film he plays a fair dink um loser who does not know when to stop, despite risking all he has(which ain't much)and decides to have one of those days out we all dream about.
Out at the track nothing seems to be going wrong.Or is that right? You will have to see, although it is funny no matter which way you look at it. If you have ever been to the races you will see plenty of characters you can relate to as well. The bragger, the tipster(s), the trainers, the colorful characters commonly referred to as it sounds better than criminal, the loan sharks and the guy who is always out to bite everyone for a loan.
The problem is was that I saw this movie whilst in rehab for a gambling addiction myself. Funny but meant so much more to me
