A fun movie with very good acting
12 December 2012 | by zoonilenSee all my reviews

This movie is about Niki, a woman who lost her good luck charm, a toy parrot, to a little boy in a set up game of poker when she was just little and since has had the worst of luck. We find her struggling to deal with her financial issues, working two jobs, as a reporter by day and a waitress by night. One day she is sent to interview a poker champion on his way to a big tournament. She soon realizes he was the boy who stole her good luck charm back in the day and decides to take it back one way or another.

This movie was much more fun than I expected and, if you look past the fact that the two leading characters started off the same age and grew up to have a ten years difference, it is very well casted. I recommend it to everyone.
