"I love this movie! It was funny at the start, then kept me on the edge of my seat in the middle, and worried about how everything was gonna turn out at the end. I wasn't sure whether I wanted the baby to be a girl which would be a happy ending, or a boy which would be more interesting. I won't spoil it for you by telling you how the ending worked out. Ron Eldard was fantastic in this movie, as were Courteney Cox and John Goodman. Eldard in particular was very believable. He and Cox seemed to have good chemistry between them, although Cox's real life husband David Arquette plays a barman.I would recomend this movie to anyone."
Intense film noir

"In my opinion, this was a nicely done film that pulled no punches. It showed the reality of a gamblers life, and how things don't always go smoothly, even in the movies. Ron Eldard and Courteney Cox gave great performances. Eldard played a convincing Edward, and I appreciated the emotion. Cox as Karina shows that she indeed has range as an actress. Not to give the movie away, but the delivery scene was intense, and Cox was excellent. The chemistry between the two was hot. John Goodman's performance as Deep Throat was good, but I'm not sure I was convinced that he could play someone as ruthless as the character was suppose to be. All in all, if you want to see how good an actor Ron Eldard is, or if you're wondering if Courteney Cox has range, check this movie out."

"I happened across this movie the other night at my local pawnshop, and thought I would give it a try. This movie gives you a veiw of how deadly, addictive and destructive uncontrolled gambling can be. While I'm not a big John Goodman fan, I must say he played the part of "Deepthroat" exceptionally well. In fact, I don't think anyone could have played it as well as he. It was custom made just for him. Ron Eldard did great in his role as a runner and gambling addict, and he and Courtney Cox looked great together. I was disappointed that Joe Matenga's character was killed off so early. Also, Bokeem Woodbine did an excellent job as well."
