As a young girl, Alicia "Ace" Anderson (Swain) had been taught the fine art and the mathematical probabilities of Texas Hold-em poker by the father she adored. But that world came to an end when her father was taken from her in a fatal auto accident. Years later, as she enters medical school, she will need to call upon the skills her father taught her as she struggles with the rigorous medical training, mounting financial pressures and the seamier side of medicine. Her friends and fellow students combine their unique talents and skills to produce a team who may well be the ultimate poker machine. But as the stakes in both the casinos and the operating room continue to rise, Ace comes to understand what her father taught her: in order to really live, you need to go all in. Written by
When two or more players go "all-in" the inference of this movie is that the person that wins the hand at the showdown automatically eliminates all others who were "all in". There was no consideration given to chip counts in this movie in "all-in" situations. See more »
I have watched many bad movies, many bad movies! There are few I could not watch. I got through "Children of the Corn IV" rather well. "Psycho Beach Party" while painful was watchable. This film (sic) was not.
The plot was possible, the execution was not.
I tried to watch it three times. The first two, I started at the beginning and just had to turn it off from sheer embarrassment. The third time, I decided to sample the movie. No matter where I tuned in, it was worse.
Domique Swain is certainly a capable actress. She lends some credibility to the movie. Madsen at his very worst is Madsen. (Not a bad thing) Swain carries the movie, but the load is too heavy.
