| EXTREMELY Predictable
Burt Reynolds plays a retired poker player who quit after losing his nerve and all his money. He's been out of the game for 20 years.

Brett Harrison is the up and coming young shark with natural talent, but a lot to learn. Burt offers to stake and coach him for a piece of the action... Sounding familiar yet? I don't need to tell you the rest of the plot because you should be able to figure it out for yourself. There are NO surprises in this movie. None.

Meanwhile, the stars sleepwalk through a script that presents no challenges.

According to IMDb's data, the film cost $5 million to make, grossed less than $100,000 in theatrical release, and got Burt Reynolds a Razzie nomination for Worst Supporting Actor.

'Nuff said?
