    Let It Ride has atmosphere, plus a good setting, appealing actors - and a bad script. [19 Aug 1989] show more

    Pytka may know how to push fizzy water, but he certainly can't make a punch line sparkle. [21 Aug 1989] show more

    Let It Ride looks like it was vastly overshot and overwritten, then whittled down to something which resembles a movie but is really a long commercial for the joys of the racetrack. [22 Aug 1989] show more

    one o my favorites, cast is dead on. seems to be a reasonable tale. great performances by all . i have watched it several times, never gets old. reminds me of of old time movies, average guy finally has his day. great innocent fun

    Every time I watch this movie, I appreciate the humor more and more. After I\'d seen it 5 or more times I finally just went and bought my own copy. I can\'t take a trip to Vegas without thinking about this flik:) \"I\'m having a VERY good day\"......Love it.

    Buster Poindexter, Jennifer tTilly Teri Garr, Cynthia Nixon with braces, the entire cast especially the charecter actors make this a classic. Dreyfus is perfect as Trotter. Fun, I am going to wathc it again now.
