Valerie Bertinelli, very watchable
Valerie Bertinelli is young, married and bored. Her husband is working monster hours doing his medical internship, and has little time for her. On a whim, she goes up to Lake Tahoe with a couple of college friends. Finding excitement at the tables, she soon gets in over her head in gambling debts and spins lie after lie to her husband and family as she depletes her savings and trust........and in a fit of despair and hopelessness, beds a casino exec. who she befriended. This is a made for tv movie, so don't expect major character development, and yes it's a bit convenient. Overall,though it's an easy watch if you like Valerie Bertinelli. If you don't, then you probably wouldn't be watching it to begin with.
