All I can pretty much do is conquer with what everyone else said. This is an extremely underrated, hardly known, right on the money racetrack pic. Dreyfuss (playing a guy named "Trotter") is a gambling obsessed cabbie who's been waiting forever for that one perfect day at the track. He gets a tip from his buddy Looney (crack up Johanssen) and the two head off to bet on the doctored up horse. Dreyfuss wins 710 dollars which kicks off an incredible run of luck over the day, but the real core of the film is the truckload of laughs to be found. Literally every one of the oddball characters has a great scene and contributes largely. From the other losers at the bar across from the track to the snobs in the Jockey Club, I loved everybody. A real treat is the rapport between Dreyfuss and Johanssen, who are great as the wiser bettor and the dopey friend. And I couldnt believe the suspense I felt during the final race, there was a tremendous amount of genuine tension. Great score, too, capturing both the upbeat and dramatic moments. Dreyfuss best film.
