  • The dull production obviously sees itself as an updated "Cincinnati Kid" for the World Poker Tour set, but the end result and its characters have all the originality and dramatic depth of a TV telecast. show more

  • Deal doesn't really care about the characters as much as it does the World Poker Championships, where Tommy and Alex end up. Once we get there the movie becomes interesting because Cates understands the game and its dramas a lot better than he understands people and theirs. show more

  • There's no compelling reason to see Deal. Everything it offers is familiar to the extent where even though it's not a remake, it feels like one. show more

    After seeing Shannon on DWTS, I've been trying to follow what she's doing & when we saw on TV that her DEAL movie was out we rushed alalout to rent it & all I can say is Thank God it was a free rental.We saw her 2 times,the lighting was black,the whole film was a disappointment,so although I like Shannon, I sure hope she does some films with substance,before she winds up in the actors home.OMG who invented this film & was'nt MGM ashamed to put their logo on it.She always seems to display her body i.e.g.American Pie,& in Tomcats she played a prostitute.Come on Shannon with stuff like that, you had no right to be such a whiner on DWTS, or did you think you were the only one who mattered?? You need to wake up and realize there's tons of gals with boobs,and they're younger,so honestly Shannon, I like you but ,please get real. Carmela

    High stakes poker in Vegas, New Orleans. Young brash hot shot matched with an old reformed gambler. Lots of exciting poker with players from the poker channel! Really enjoyed the girlfriend, Shannon Elizabeth. Lots of fun.

    I loved this movie because it really holds your interest. Burt Reynolds is at the top of his game as the retired poker player and the young boy he takes on as his protegee, Brett Harrison, is just perfect for the role. You don't have to be a poker player to get involved with the story, but if you are, then you will really have a wild ride!
