Goofs

When Ben Affleck's character talks about all the things he cannot do in the US anymore, he mentions Pittsburgh and its famous Primanti brothers restaurant chain, notably the specialty sandwiches they make. He pronounces it Pri-MAHN-ti, with the AN letters sounding like 'on'. Any big fan of the restaurant chain would know the proper pronunciation is Prim-AN-ti, with the AN sound similar to the name "Ann". See more »

Quotes

Richie Furst: Everyone gambles. They may call it something else, like the stock market, or real estate. But make no mistake, if you're risking something, you're gambling. And if you're gambling, then I'm the guy you want to see.

Out of Sync.
9 October 2013 | by ArT_of_InSaNiTySee all my reviews

Dear oh dear oh dear. The saying "Don't give up your day job" could never be more true regarding a certain someones performance. Over the past 7 years now, Justin Timberlake has become progressively prominent in films. Why? Well because he's a big star....in music that is. So (according to some deluded people) that must mean he must be able to act....no it doesn't. He is a terrible actor; every single thing he does is horrifically unconvincing. He could even be in a film where he plays a popstar and i still wouldn't believe it. His smiles are smothered in falseness, his delivery is diabolical, his expressions are excruciating to watch. There are no redeeming features to his "acting". What makes a great actor is someone who makes you believe they truly are the person they are portraying. Timberlake is seemingly incapable of that.

He seems to get plaudits for "The Social Network", but the only reason he does is because he is in fact an attention seeking, irritating dweeb. Every chat show he over compensates and that follows him in films where he overacts. And just like in "In Time" his acting drains any chance of potential for this film.

People may argue that it wasn't his fault the film was terrible, and yes the film was rather dull as a whole, but it does not excuse his obvious inability to act. And in my opinion it was his fault i couldn't enjoy it. There are scenes in the movie where you can't help but associate Richie (Timberlake) with people from other films....horrible versions of course. When he's acting like the whiz kid of poker; tediously explaining the way to win, you just have to look back to Edward Norton or Matt Damon in "Rounders" and it really shows how bad he is. When he's strolling around the casino with the most irritating of faces, you flash back to Robert De Niro in "Casino" and it really couldn't be anymore blatant that Timberlake is completely out of sync when it comes to acting.

Ben Affleck and Anthony Mackie where average, but they didn't have much chance in such a dense film. I really am struggling to add positivity, but it's difficult, it was just monotonous. erm..... just Timberlake's attempt at an angry face making me chuckle... that's about it.
