Trivia

Though the name of the character "Wilson" (who busts Prof. Barnes) is listed in the end credits, nobody ever calls him by his name. See more »

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 »

Quotes

Scott: Interesting.
Barnes: What the hell is that? A bridesmaids dress?
Elyse: Well, it's the best that I could do! I mean, what the hell do you people think? Every woman has some kind of secret stash of slutty outfits?
Scott: Only the fun ones.
Elyse: I'm fun!

Superb movie, a must-see. Movie genius in all aspects!
13 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I second the comment that this movie is one of the best of 2004. I'll actually go as far as to say this is THE best movie of 2004! The brilliant writing, convincing acting, skilled directing, and all other aspects of this film come together wonderfully to create a masterpiece. The plot is fresh and fairly unconventional, releasing its pathway from the overused movie plot clone formulae of Hollywood (ugh). The characters are all very lifelike and are performed masterfully by the actors! The music is also well done. I never felt myself distracted by flamboyant themes, but instead was drawn in by the music which worked perfectly to enhance the action on screen. I can't wait to see future movies by this relatively new director, skilled writer, and these great new actors.

I recommend this movie whole-heartedly! Bravo Canada!
