But after a chance meeting at an LA card parlor, these twolosers find that together, they make an unbeatable team. Embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime winning streak, Bill and Charlie bet their way from the tacky racetracks and bars of Los Angeles to the plush casino tables of Reno, where they end up staking their good fortune on a "friendly" little game ofpoker with the legendary world champion, Amarillo Slim. A high-rolling comedy about two friends with an uncontrollable urge to score.
It's a great movie about totally rootless people attached to basically self-destructive lifestyles. It is just so brilliantly done with many layers and nuances.Published 2 days ago by George

Love Altman but couldn't sit through this one. Kind of a preview for Dumb and Dumber. Boring.Published 8 months ago by Eva Hesse
Another unique movie from the genius that is Robert Altman. The narrative just sort of floats along; no formulaic Hollywood crap here.Published 15 months ago by Lonas Taylor
Not all about poker but just a gambling story in general... Stud, horse racing, craps. Starts in so cal and ends in Reno. Really liked this older flick.Published 18 months ago by Sean J Twyford
This movie may not be for everybody but it is one of my personal favorites. Slice of life set in the Southern California gambling world of the 1970's decades before "Texas Hold'em"... Read morePublished 24 months ago by Brian Bennett Jr
It's a very slow moving slice of life type 70's film. By today's standards it's probably thought to be boring. You have to be in the right mood to watch it.Published on July 8, 2013 by Marion Douglas
