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 »

Money oh ya!
8 June 2006 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

Its a story about a professor called Barnes who got a 40.000$ debt. Thats why he recruits 3 students Elyse (Katharine Isabelle), Scott and George and teaches them the art of card counting. Its really fun to watch the friendship of 3 totally different people to grow so fast, watch them getting better and better in card counting and winning all the money.

The reason i watched this movie was because of Katharine Isabelle (favorite actress) but in the first minutes of the movie i saw that this is going to be fun because i always liked movies about casinos, money and this kinda cheating. Its not so popular probably because its a TV movie and made in Canada (No offense or anything) but it should be.

If you get the chance to see this awesome movie than do it!
