The boys return from jail to find the park has deteriorated, with a brand new park being created beside it. They attempt a series of get rich quick schemes and robberies, while a freshly drunk Lahey threatens to derail their plans.
The script was barely 29 pages long. Zak Penn had the actors improvise. See more »
When the 6 players start the last round, they have 13.5 million dollars in total. Later on (during the 10-minute break) they have 13.49 million. and when only 2 players are remaining, back to 13.5 million. See more »
Yes, its silly, but so was Spinal Tap, which The Grand owes a debt to in many ways.
Gabe Kaplan is hilarious as the father of two poker pros and Dennis Farina has the old time Vegas hood down pat. Phil Gordon, the best live teacher in poker, has some great lines as the tournament commentator.
You will spot a friend or yourself in one or more of the players, and the cameos are fun, including Phil "the hillside strangler" Laak as he was introduced..
If you like poker and still have a funny bone, this is as good as it gets.
