Sam is a professional gambler, complete with the whole package: highs and lows in fortune, an ex-wife with money, and an estranged son, Jack, who lives solid-citizen but tries to rival his father. The rivalry comes to a head when Sam starts living with a much-younger woman nicknamed Princess that he picks up in the desert town of Indio on his way back from a mediocre gambling jaunt in Laughlin, Nevada. At first distrustful of Sam, their relationship grows unexpectedly warm - except that, while she appears to love Sam, Princess also sleeps with Jack. Meanwhile, Sam teaches Princess the skills of the gambling trade: Sam's reputation is that "He always wins when it counts." Their fortunes take a nosedive, though, when Sam makes a wrong calculation on a low-end bet and winds up with both his knees smashed - just after he'd lined-up Insa, a female connection to a dangerous high stakes gambling syndicate. Now, needing the rush of that high stakes gambling to make himself feel alive, Sam ... Written by Hank Gerber, unit publicist

Don't watch even 5 minutes of this because...
16 December 2012 | by krisdlSee all my reviews

This film is possibly the worst film I have ever seen.

The actors and actresses give you a howto on bad acting, the sets are awful, the writing is just ridiculous.

I cannot find anything good to say, the music was over the top, the actors overacted everything, I think the director was in the bar while the camera man got tired of waiting and just shot some random rubbish.

This is one of those films that you hope you do not accidentally start watching when flicking through channels on the TV.

Please I beg you all, do not watch this film, it's horrible. I have not put any spoilers in this review because it's like trying to spoil a knife cut, it hurts, you will bleed, time will pass and you will heal but you will have the memory of it. In this case this is a bad thing.
