I am not going to give you a replay of the film; you can get that info from many internet sites. I'll only say that if you like movies of gamblers addicted to the games of chance and enjoy quirky characters, well written dialogue and a good sense of the camera's eye to tell a story, you will not regret watching this movie.
i like ryan renolds in dead pOOL. Probably because he wears a mask through most of it - so i don't have too look at his stupid face.
fun, interesting, quirky little movie. solid B maybe even a B+
when graded against The Godfather, The Exorcist, and PulP Fiction. all of which are A++

What follows is a road trip of sorts which is punctuated by their need for a fix - that is more gambling. These guys will gamble on anything – even what eye wear the next guy coming out of the washroom will have on. Essentially both men are losers but ones who are both essentially likeable. The portrayal by both leading men manages to illicit sympathy for both men despite the warning signs that these men are self destructive.

Now I really enjoyed this but it is missing something and that is the heavy dose of realism. ‘Gambleaholics’ rarely quit – they just go broke. Part of this is shown by Gerry who will stoop lower than a snakes belly to feed his habit. However, the ending for me fell kind of flat. One of the recurring themes of the film is that ‘the destination is the journey’ and it is for that self same reason that I am awarding the mark I have. This is a good journey – sadly the ending left it firmly in Narnia which was a shame and a dodged issue as far as I am concerned. I have known and still do know gambling addicts and they are wonderful people who invariably will lie, steal, rob – anything as their lives spiral downwards. It is a shame that the truth for the majority was glossed over by a feel good ending that spoiled the film.
