Goofs

The stake in "double or quits", as used in the Super Bowl scene, should not be twice the previous stake, it's the same as the previous stake. Being $X down, another stake of $X will leave you either $2X down on loss (double), or $0 down on victory (quits). Were the new stake to be twice, you'd end up either $3X down, or $X up. Both characters are inveterate gamblers, so shouldn't muddle their terminology so. See more »

Quotes

Owens: Love'll get you killed in this racket. No place for that shit here. No happiness with that. You know how they say there's honor among thieves? Well, you're no thief, Mellow. You made your choice.

A clever film with a few twists
17 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not really sure how this film has got some poor reviews. It was clever, funny and overall kept my focus (Pardon the pun).

Will Smith is fantastic in this film, not being an over-exuberant character, which I feel some people were expecting in this film. His on screen relationship with Margot Robbie was very good, and I feel she has not got as much credit for this film as she deserves.

Some fantastic camera shots, and great locations add a little bit extra to this film.

I would advise not listening to reviews and going to see it for yourself and making the decision on your own. Enjoy!
