Goofs

Barnes says that Casinos will do anything to distract a player including sending over free booze. While this is true in the United States, the movie is set in Canada, and Canadian casinos are not permitted to "give" free alcohol. Soft drinks and coffee only. See more »

Enjoyable little flick
18 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a person who has been "asked" to leave a casino for keeping a running bias count, I obviously have a interest in the subject matter.

The plot centers around a college professor who has been banned from the casino(s) in his area for counting cards. He owes a good bit of money to the "investors" who has been banking him. He recruits kids good at math from the university to win money back from the casino.

I always like the idea of someone sticking it to the casinos as the casinos give such horrible odds to players.

The fun of the movie is how the kids react and handle the pressure of using a system to beat the casino. The systems they use in the movie would not work in Casino's in Vegas and Atlantic City but variations of the system has been used for a long time by card counters.

This is a fun little movie for anyone who has been to a casino especially anyone who plays blackjack.
