Gene: The fact that you're even thinking about this plan means that that bag is gonna be devoid of money in less than three weeks.
Eddie: Not true.
Gene: Absolutely.
Eddie: There is a happy ending on this one. Absolutely.
Gene: There can't be a happy ending. Because there has never been a happy ending for you.
Eddie: That's a loser's attitude.
Gene: Every story you ever told me, from the day I've met you has been about how you were here and then you ended up here.
Eddie: That's because you're my sponsor. What, am I just gonna tell you my glory stories?...

User Reviews

Gambling film of the year.
7 April 2017 | by benighted2005See all my reviews

Netflix said I will give this a full score. Netflix was right. This is a film about a man who has no job and no prospects. He thinks he is a good gambler but he is not good at all. A friend/colleague is going to prison. The guy leaves the protagonist a bag and says in clear terms, don't open it. I'll take it back when I get out and give you $10k. Our protagonist agrees. But he can't help him self.

What follows is a funny, entertaining and hilarious ride. I loved this. This is like an Indie Swingers. This is Jake Johnson's best film since drinking buddies which I really liked. Raw and edgy. Fans of Rounders + Swingers + Owning Mahowny may appreciate it. Whereas Louis Ck fans might wanna try it too.

Why am I writing this review? The rating on IMDb is ridiculous and discouraging
