2.0 out of 5 stars Impossible Ending Ruins the Movie December 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Decent movie, loved the cast, and it was tense. Up until just about the last few minutes, it could have gone several ways. The ending between Tepper and Avery was good, but the "twist" at the very end made no sense at all. The ending was not even probable; actually it is pretty much impossible. It was a predictable ending, but not at all possible. There were a few plot holes along the way, but you could overlook them. The ending, however, was IMPOSSIBLE and really wrecked the entire movie. But you should watch it just to feel the "wtf?" at the end. Don't try to figure it out because it's not possible and it will just make your brain hurt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved the tension May 28, 2004
Every movie has it's flaws, and this one certainly falls short of perfect. But what it lacks in plot, it certainly makes up with fine acting. From the very beginning you feel the tension and know it is going to explode sooner or later, you just don't know when. So you keep watching, trying to decide who you are going to cheer for. Even when the story gets confusing, you feel like you are right there in the room with these five disfunctional characters getting ready to throw a punch of your own, or dodge one from someone else. Women may not understand this kind of interaction between "friends," but these misfits are bonded by some need for each other and they know how to make each other react. I will watch again to enjoy the acting and subtilities.

1.0 out of 5 stars A very poor effort by a novice movie maker.... May 24, 2006
It's amazing that this much acting talent could be shoe-horned into such a bad movie. I don't see how it could have yielded six 5-star reviews (The Godfather it ain't).

Using its better scenes, you could put together a trailer for this movie that would make you want to see it. And you may be entertained through much of the movie. But when the story becomes quite nonsensical in the final minutes of the movie, you will feal cheated and wish that you had watched something else. At least that's how everyone in my family felt when we watched it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good actually. February 8, 2013
By Rich
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Jeff Probst first movie is actually pretty good. It's not an Oscar winner by far, but it's really pretty good. Probst wrote and directed it. It's about a group of friends and their weekly poker game. I liked this movie and recommend it. There's an A list cast also. It's probably not their best acting jobs, but the sory is what makes the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finder's Fee July 21, 2008
The story starts out with a young man finding a wallet on the street while considering marriage to the lady he loves. He calls the only number he can find in the wallet that is the supposed to be the brother of the owner. But then he finds a lottery ticket in it and hears the numbers for the winning ticket. The ticket in the wallet. So what would you do if you found a wallet on the street and it had a lottery ticket worth six million dollars in it? Then his three friends join him for an evening of poker. When a man, played by James Earl Jones, rings the bell and says he is the owner of the wallet, the finder decides to swap the ticket for his losing ticket. The wallet recoverer is invited to play cards by his friends and the the police arrive searching the building and forbiding anyone to leave.

The young man starts to panic wondering if the wallet owner knows he swapped tickets. Finally one of his friends realizes what he has done and takes action against the man that came to recover the wallet. An action that may lead to a life or death result. When a cop arrives at the scene he is given the lottery ticket to make sure the right thing is done. But then at the end we see another ticket given to the man recovering the wallet. The twists and turns in the story make it rather interesting and I enjoyed it. Good quality DVD with decent replayability. If you enjoyed this be sure to catch "Millions (2005)" and "It Could Happen to You (1994)". - C. Luster

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT FILM November 17, 2005

What can I say about this instant classic besides dawm what a debut. JEFF PROBST of survivor fame debuts with this incredibly engaging film. Written and directed by the rising star, this film leaves u wishing he would come with another film soon. His directing decisions show threw out as he crafts one of the best films I have ever seen. I can't believe this film didn't blow up, but at least he won best up and coming director for this film or was it best new director.

The story follows Tepper {Erik Palladino} as he is preparing to propose to his girl, and on his way home he finds a lost wallet and calls a number inside looking for the owner. He soon finds out that the lottery ticket inside is the winning ticket, and decides to keep it. Soon following this his friends drop in to get started on playing cards, and that's when the real entertainment begins. Has all three arrive to play the owner shows up, James Earl Jones. As he gives the wallet back the police storm the building and put it on lock down. So the stakes rise and friendships get tested as the lottery tickets are up for grabs in the game including the winning ticket. The best part happens when Mr. Jones is attacked by one of them because he figured out what was going on with the ticket.

The thing that makes this film so great is the acting, each actor brings their character to life with their performances. The best performances come from Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Lillard, and Dash Mihok. Reynolds in his quiet shy role surprises the film the most with his violent out burst in the end showing that his depression goes beyond just taking Fishmans abuse. Speaking of Fishman, this role is played brilliantly by Lillard.
