This movie has legs!!!!
8 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

One Last Ride illustrates on screen, an obsessed gambling addict Michael (Patrick Cupo) who is in trouble from the first minute of the film, and can't help but get into more trouble. I felt pity for him, and cringed at his every (wrong) move. There is a bit of comedy relief from his best friend Carmine (Joe Marinelli) who is his steadfast, trustworthy (but not too smart) "first wife" who accompanies Michael on his misadventures. Hopelessly in debt to Tweat (Chazz Palminteri), his pregnant wife (Anita Barone) expecting any day, suspicious boss (Charles Durning), and ghostly apparition father (Robert Davi) add to Michael's chug-a-lugging of Mylanta. Michael is proof positive that scared money can't win.

A definite must see, but pay attention because it does move as fast as the thoroughbreds.
