    Many advanced apologies if this has been on here before.


    Not sure how well Spacey will do in it, but looks interesting.

    1. I don't like the look of it. 'Bringing Down the House' didn't need this kind of blockbuster treatment. It would make a great movie by keeping it simple and closer to the truth.
    B. I hope 21 sues the hell out of them.

    And here i thought it was about "21" the sportsjournalists.com message board poster. My mistake.

    Look's interesting. I'd love to learn how to count cards for gambling entertainment purposes. Maybe this movie will help.

    21 the sj movie would be distracting to watch, what with all the pixilated faces.

    ... and the inevitable cameo by Liza.

    I should clarify that I cannot vouch for the veracity of the book.
    However, the material is presented very simply and mater-of-factly. It's so compelling that it needs no real adornment.
    I wish the movie were handled the same way.

    The movie would be full of fail if it didn't have a Thanksgiving dinner scene.

    So they said 'Of course it's your story, except we might change a few things, like maybe set it in Vegas, don't worry, you'll love it!'

    At least they spelled my name right.

    They enlisted the help of a cheerleader to make sure.

    I heard the scene at Stan's had to be edited dozens of times to get it down to a hard R.

    You should stop reading TBL.

    Precisely. That book was a quick damn read, because there isn't a damn thing boring about bringing Vegas to its knees.
