As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett's teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John's side ever since - a friendship that's tested when Lori, John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.
The script was barely 29 pages long. Zak Penn had the actors improvise. See more »
(at around 39 mins) when "The German" claims to have played Russian roulette with slave traders, the picture clearly shows him holding a pistol with a magazine, and not a revolver. See more »
Ruth, if I were a food critic, I would give your cooking five stars -- five stars that had each collapsed into a black hole and merged to form the largest black hole in the universe.

Being a regular poker player myself, i was probably more interested in watching this, than a non poker player, but you do not have to be an avid poker fan to enjoy this movie, though it would be slightly more interesting if you was.
Although the main basis of the film is about 6 people who have made the final table of a £10m poker tournament, it goes into more detail at the start of the film, of each particular person and their background etc, so by the end of the movie when the final is being played, you will probably have a favourite as to who you want to win.
But although the movie was watchable, it wasn't that good that you would want to watch it again and halfway through the film you've a pretty good idea how its going to end.
If you are into poker, look out for cameo appearances of Doyle Brunson and Phil Helmuth.
Verdict: Watchable but don't expect too much out of it.
