Because I'm a sucker--I was entertained...The script is good at making you think that it has better cards than it really does. And the actors constitute a royal flush--OK, OK, enough with the poker metaphors. Full Review

Mischievously entertaining...Dahl's film has character in oversupply even if its actual characters are sometimes thin. Poker fever makes up for whatever the story lacks in everyday emotions. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Although the storyline is predictable, the intelligent dialogue and top-drawer acting more than make up for the possible deficiency. Full Review

Like Malkovich's out of control Russian accent, Rounders ends up reaching a place too hard to understand and even harder to believe in. Full Review
Mick LaSalle
San Francisco Chronicle
It should have been the poker equivalent of "The Hustler." But it suffers from iron-poor blood. No energy. It just lies there. Full Review
