Storyline

Brendan is a janitor at a university who has a fondness for gambling, especially betting on horse races. However, he doesn't have much skill at it, and poorly considered bets have drained the bank account he'd set aside for his daughter's education. Brendan's wife has made Brendan promise to give up gambling, but when their daughter announces she's just been accepted to Trinity College in Ireland, Brendan has to come up with the tuition money, and fast. While doing his sweeping at work, Brendan makes a remarkable discovery - the preserved head of an aboriginal tribesman who, under proper conditions, can pick the winners in horse races.

An average kinda movie
22 November 2006 | by blueheaven76See all my reviews

Worth watching but i wouldn't give it more than that. Coltrane was very good and Brenda Blythen wasn't given enough material to show her talents.

It was a bit slow in places and you couldn't stop yourself thinking that they could've made this movie a lot funnier....

Similar to let it ride with Richard Dreyfuss but not quite as amusing.

Oh and to the last poster.... Aykroyds mistress is FAR from gorgeous!!! ....you want gorgeous tap in Marissa Tomei ! The woman out of My Cousin Vinney and many more...

Now go watch let it ride...

A far better movie withing the same genre.
