Living in Greenwich Village, Tepper is a pretty stand-up kind of guy. As a stand-up guy, he helps his elderly neighbor, Mrs. Darmsetter, whenever he can. He also keeps the vow with his poker playing friends Fish, Bolan and Quigley that they will not check the winning numbers against the Big 3 Lotto tickets they ante in their "last man standing" five card draw poker games, "the last man standing" taking the entire pot of tickets. Being a stand-up guy is one of the reasons why his girlfriend Carla loves him. On the night that he plans to propose to Carla, but not before the regular poker night at his apartment, he finds a wallet on the street with no money and little identification in it, let alone no photo ID, but he still goes to whatever measures he can to locate the wallet's owner, who, according to the sole piece of ID, is a fireman named Avery Phillips. Just before his friends and Avery arrive at his apartment, Tepper also finds in the wallet a Big 3 Lotto ticket, a $6 million ... Written by

[knocking on her door]
Mrs. Darmsetter? Hey... You left your door open again.
Heaven sake, I wonder how did that happen.
Yes well, how is everything?
Well, I'm worried about my mail. I think someone's stealing it. Because I haven't received any letters from my kids in a long time, and they always write.
Well, are they taking all your mail or just the letters?
Just the letters. You'd think they'd take everything else, wouldn't you? They don't.

A rare film with seamless acting and real characters
This movie takes place in real time, one night in an NYC apartment. Our hero finds a wallet and tries to return it before he discovers that it contains a winning lottery ticket. His buddies show up to play poker and so does the owner of the wallet. It's a fun ride that explores the themes of loyalty, honesty and friendship. What's great about this movie is how such a simple idea quickly turns into an intellectual thriller. It's sad that movies like this are so rare. This is a movie about real and complex characters in which the acting is so seemless that you can relax and enjoy the story. Too often I find myself "working" during a film, trying to stay emotionally involved with the story when the actors are clearly just saying their lines, or the characters are merely slaves to someone's idea of a clever plot. No such problem here. The five main characters are played to perfection by an amazing cast and their actions drive the story from one scene to the next toward a dramatic conclusion.
