Lahti burns through a thinly written role with a surprising level of warmth and humanity. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
An extremely awkward cross between "Ocean's Eleven" and "Rain Man." Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
Yonkers Joe is incoherent, succeeding neither as an exciting gambling ride nor a touching family story. Full Review
Sam Adams
Los Angeles Times
A mash-up of indie-film tropes. Full Review
