    Player 5150. Plot centers around a sports bettor who gets in too deep with bookies. B flick but topical to this thread.

    I liked Hardball. Really connected with him during the bar scene when his play hits and he's the only one going nuts.

    I loved a old movie from the 70's California Split i think it was called i have not seen it for ever It was With Elliot Gould and Siegel.I remember a Scene they were at the Old Olympic Auditorium in Downtown LA watching and betting on a boxing match i think Gould was bragging and waving the money around then he gets mugged in the parking lot and loses all his money.the Longshot with Tim Conway was a ok funny movie.

    I love how the makers of Hardball make gamblers out to be raging psychos. Keanu Reeves is 12k in debt, so what does he do...lay another 12k bet lol. And when he's placing the bet on the phone, he completely changes it last second on a hunch. Lol, Hollywood.

As a former casino worker and manager I can tell you MUCH of this is true for most employees.

    And...



    Philip Seymour Hoffman's best work bar none. Most here have probably seen it, but it centers around a bank executive who embezzles more and more to feed his gambling addiction. At one point he even gets out of debt and goes up millions, but you can guess where that goes. He even gets so desperate as to call bookies and tell them he wants every home team in the National League and every away team in the American. Minnie Driver plays a great spouse who is pushed to the brink by this psychological addiction. Great movie that really highlights the ultimate depths to which a degenerate will go...
    Thanks for telling us about Owning Mahowny. I never heard of it before. I saw your post and ended up watching it. What a great movie.

    Some really great movies here, owning mahoney, wow what a sick flick. There is one in my opinion very good movie that is not mentioned. Had multiple oscar winners, golden globe winners as well. Despite all that the movie was a bust. Movie had about five huge stars and 5 others everyone would know.

    Any guesses?
