Worth the price of admission for one scene alone!
"Zigs" aka Double Down is hilarious. Full of little scenes that make a small movie work. The core of the movie is four friends, degenerate gamblers all who spend their days and nights at a restauraunt bar called "Zigs". When one of their number is threatened by a Christopher Walken impersonating bookie, for his excessive debts, the Jewish buddies come up with a plan to throw a major league baseball game. The plot is really unimportant compared to the great atmosphere and fun characters. One scene on the techniques for impersonating William Shatner is worth the cost of rental alone. A fun little film. Keep your eyes peeled for more Jason Priestly work, he's not just a 90210 flake! If you like Double Down you'll also enjoy a great little movie called "Coldblooded".
