Goofs

During the Fairgrounds Racetrack scene prior to the start of the horse race, the track announcer says "The trotters are now in the hand of the starter, it's post time." This would be appropriate prior to the start of a trotting harness race, not a thoroughbred turf race which is depicted as happening live on the track. See more »

Great portrayal of a gambling addict
1 December 2015 | by valleyjohnSee all my reviews

This is a film about two poker players who strike up a friendship and go on a road trip to win their fortune. The problem is that one of them doesn't know when to quit. This is one the best films I've seen about gambling and poker in a long time. The two lead actors , Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn are brilliant and they work really well together. Mendelsohn in particular is really convincing as man with a severe gambling problem. This doesn't glamorise gambling at all and it highlights all the pitfalls of not being able to stop gambling. Essentially this is a road movie that despite having many bumps is actually a really good journey to be on for the viewer.
