Pretty bad 80s flick
This is a pretty bad movie, unless you happen to like blackjack movies. Even so, it's still a pretty lousy movie.
An emotionally unstable acting student takes her pain-in-the-rear acting teacher on a spur-the-moment "I'm going to get rich playing blackjack!" adventure and gets picked up by a casino coaching Kevin Costner. The whole acting thing never gets brought up again, by the way. Without enough knowledge about the card game, it's hardly a gambling movie. And with the classic "I got a makeover but I'm still not really that pretty" scene, it's hardly a romance. Oh, and don't forget about the "let's laugh and throw snowballs at each other" scene, and the "let's dance like goofy kids in an 80s country dive bar" scene.
Pretty much the only redeeming part of the film is getting to see Kevin Costner in a cowboy hat, smirking and saying, "Hot diggity!" That's it. Save yourself 90 minutes and just imagine it.
