Storyline

Freeze Out is a comedy about one man's ridiculous and overzealous attempt to get revenge for the constant ribbing of his best friends at his weekly poker game. John's weekly poker game is a sanctuary from the horrors of living and working in Los Angeles: a ritual of jokes, beer drinking, talking movies, politics, and sex. In short, it's a good time and the max bet is 25 cents so no one is going to go broke. But something is bugging John. His friends don't respect him; any chance they get they cut him down, tell him he's boring, make him feel small. He's tired of being the butt of their jokes and he's not going to take it anymore. So he raises the stakes, trains in secret and engineers a winner-take-all Freeze Out, never realizing it might cost him his 7 best friends. What starts as an innocent night of low stakes poker becomes a ripping lampoon of friendship and a funny look at how we all lie to ourselves. Written by M.J. Loheed

Straight Flush of Poker movies.
21 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched Freeze Out and loved it. I think that it's great to have a poker movie that so many poker players can relate to. If you've ever sat down at a home game and played cards with your friends, this movie will hit the spot. If you even have a group of friends this movie will appeal to you. If you have never played poker and you don't have a group of friends, maybe pass on this one. Although it should inspire you to get some friends. I think that all of the characters are VERY well developed, I think that the poker action in it is very true to a real home game. And I think it is very funny. If you have Rounders and Shade in your collection, this one may be a hard find, but worth the trouble.
