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
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!
