When Mike and Worm visit Grama together, Grama lists the amount owed as $25,000. This was the original amount owed, but he already took the first $10K back from Worm. Later in the same scene, Grama goes back to demanding the correct $15K amount. See more »
A tightly focused vehicle for Damon's charm and swagger.
This film is incredibly focused. There is not one throw-away line or one extra frame in the entire movie. From the first establishing shot to the final line, the production team plays it tight and aggressive. I couldn't help but think of "The Hustler" as I watched, and Damon more than survives this comparison to a young Paul Newman. His swagger and charm and the even, controlled truthfulness of his performance all serve to place him solidly in the game with any of Hollywood's best. Highly recommended.
