In the high stakes private game, Vinson, who everyone at the table knows is Alex's mentor, is standing directly behind the player against whom Alex is heads-up. From that position he could easily see the opponent's cards, and signal Alex as to what they were. This would never be tolerated. See more »
It would appear from the comments that this is the worst movie in history !!!!, well its not really. I am not going to say its award winning material because it is not. I watched the movie from start to finish and not once did i look at my watch thinking isn't it about time this finished.
Burt is looking old which is a shame as to me he will always be JJ from Cannonball Run with Capt Chaos (Dom DeLuise) for Company. Shannon Elizabeth is totally wasted, looked good though and why Jennifer Tilly was in this movie was beyond me.
the story was predictable with no great surprises. I could have written the finale 30 minutes into the film however it does keep you captivated. I felt you actually cared about the characters which is pretty unusual.
Watch it, enjoy it, forget about it would be my advice.
