Obsessed by the world of pool, Johnny (Mars Callahan) could be one of the best. But his mentor and "trainer" Joe (Chazz Palminteri), a shady hustler who decides how and who Johnny plays, is holding him back from his dream. When the day finally comes, Johnny breaks from Joe, which leads to only one thing -- violence. Joe is beaten up by some of Johnny's buddies as a sign to leave him alone, and with this final act of freedom, Johnny leaves the world of pool-sharking.

Christopher Walken made the difficult trick shot to win the match against Tara's (Eastwood) boss on the first take. He was supposed to make a "trial run" for the scene, but he asked that the cameras go ahead and roll, in case he happened to make it on his first try, and he did. See more »

Man that chick has got body karate.
Hay do you think her tits are real? I hate chicks with fake tits.
Are you kidding me? Fake tits are the greatest invention of the 20th century. Plus they're safe.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, safer?
Yeah. But do you know that 78% of all chicks that have fake tits involved in boating accidents do not drown.
Where do you get this shit?
It's common knowledge

Christopher Walken happens to be one of my favourites, and it was a nice surprise to see him in this film - but even without his charismatic acting, it would surely have been worth the time. Excellent showing of the game at it's brilliant best, it is also pretty funny, mostly believable (even tho a couple of times the hustling was made a bit too easy) and has more depth than Color of Money or the old one which had Minnesota Fats in it.. forgot the name of that one.
I'd double rate this film 9-10 for pool players, 7-9 for others.
Oh and the guy playing the hustler is a nice find, hope to see him in some other new films too.
