Storyline

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? Gail looks at the posters of the great women pool champions on her wall, Dorothy Wise and Jean Balukas and smiles. A screech of tires outside shakes Gail's attention to the street. As Gail quickly opens her window, she sees a car speed up and stop next to her Dad, as he staggers up the street holding a long package under his arm. Gail waves to her Dad, he smiles, waves back, and blows her a kiss. A man jumps out of the car, runs up to Gail's Dad and stabs him in the chest and yells in his face "Dirty dogs must die!" Gail races to her Dad's side. As he ... Written by Anthony Palma

I loved this movie
8 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
