Storyline

The mark is Anthony Reeves who has just received a controversial half-million pound payout on being fired from his most recent job. Reeves loves the horses so the team set him up for The Wire - convince him that they are getting race information before it's being made available publicly thereby ensuring a win. The scam works well until one of their previous victims decides he wants his money back. Meanwhile, Danny has an amusing crisis of confidence when a new receptionist refuses to go out with him.

Goofs

After Mickey slugs Danny in the face and knocks him to the floor, a wide blood splatter appears on the right side of Danny's face originating from the corner of his mouth. In the next closeup, Danny has a neat vertical line of blood flowing more from the center of his mouth directly down his chin. Cutting to a wide shot of Danny's profile, the blood spray comes out more to the side of his mouth. Cutting back to closeup angles, Danny's blood stream is again neatly flowing straight down from the center of his mouth. See more »
