Storyline

Three friends have two things in common: (1) they like to bet on the horses at the track, and (2) they invariably lose. One day they hit upon a scheme to steal one of the track's betting machines, so that they'd be able to print winning tickets and recoup the money they've lost over the years. However, things don't go exactly as planned. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Poorly written, poorly edited, badly lit.
1 April 2001 | by Jill-68See all my reviews

A well-intentioned film that is, unfortunately, a bomb. Many of the scenes outlive their usefulness. Not only that, but they're badly lit to boot. And the characters are unappealing....believe me, you would not want to know any of them.

A shame, because the actors themselves are a likeable bunch of fellas. The story revolves around three losers: Alex Karras, Dean Stockwell and Russ Tamblyn. They hatch a plan to steal a betting machine from the racetrack, with the idea of printing up their own winning tickets. That's the plot, and it takes forever to get there. Look for a quick scene with Harry Dean Stanton in the men's restroom.
