Storyline

A group of single guys meet for their weekly, all male, all-night poker game. One of the regulars invites a woman (Liz) to join and she turns out to be a very good player. Things get more complicated when two of the guys (Ty and Gordon) confide to a third (Andy) that they're having affairs with each other's girlfriends. The host (Bill) tries to keep his weekly ritual intact as it begins to crumble around him. Written by Brett Schlaman <brettad@aol.com>

Absolutely hysterical
7 April 1999 | by (cleveland) – See all my reviews

Very funny movie. It's so much like my life, except they distilled all the funny stuff down to two hours. I wish they'd find a way to put this in general release so my poker buddies could see it.
