Acclaimed filmmaker Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential) and Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) deal viewers into the game with this high-stakes drama set in the world of professional poker. Eric Bana (Troy, Munich) plays a gifted young gambler who gets a few lessons in risk and reward from a struggling Vegas singer (Drew Barrymore, Charlie's Angels) and her sister (Will & Grace's Debra Messing). Now on a collision course with his estranged father (Oscar® winner Robert Duvall) in the World Series of Poker, Bana presses his luck in a world where there are only winners and losers.

Don't bet on Barrymore's lackluster poker rom-com.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this isn't a typical bright and bubbly Drew Barrymore romantic comedy. While there's not much sex or violence, there's plenty of antisocial behavior and compulsive gambling. One character runs a telephone scam, while others live in bathrooms to win bets. The main character steals his girlfriend's money and gambles away someone else's. He also encourages his girlfriend to lie and cheat for him. Goons looking to collect on his debts throw him into an empty pool, where he scrapes up his face. Some swearing and drinking.
