Gail had her tenth birthday party tonight, but her Dad was not there. She loves her dad, and he loves her. He had told her he was bringing her a special present, so why was he so late? Gail thought she knew what the present was; it must be that special custom pool cue she had wanted. Dad must have stopped to pick it up on his way home from work; maybe he stopped at Vicky's billiards to shoot a few games of 9-ball and lost track of time?

I watched this movie and I have to say that this was excellent. Jennifer Barretta was the best choice for Gail without a doubt. The movie is not just about pool. I think that all the characters were well played and the films storyline was well thought out and flows well. I think the fact that Allison Fisher and Jeanette Lee were involved made it even better. I followed the Facebook page for this movie during production and I was impressed that they involved the town so much. The way they kept fans informed was very nice. Being a pool player made this movie a must have. I will enjoy this one for a long time. Even if you are not a pool player this is a great movie.
