An average kind of guy who has a slight problem with gambling goes to the track, and mystically, it seems as though he can't lose, no matter how he bets; and he has an incredible day.Written by
This movie is on cable a lot. My intention to watch a few minutes invariably turns into my watching until the end. I love this movie.
It is a simple and very funny movie with a fine cast portraying an array of eccentric characters. Yet there is often a sweetness in this film reminiscent of a movie like Roxanne.
The premise is that at times the universe can align in such a way that you just know in your bones that nothing can stop you from having a really good day. Watching Richard Dreyfuss come to this realization and watching him savoring it while it is happening is appealing.
It struck me last night that of all Mr. Dreyfuss's admirable body of work, I like him the best in Let It Ride.
