Movie Preview: Deal (Which Looks a Lot Like 21)


This movie didn't have a whole lot going for it in the first place, but the timing of it all just kind of forces us to call Deal a "poor man's 21," what with having a ridiculously similar storyline and everything. Bret Harrison — who is utterly adorable on Reaper — plays a smart college kid with a skill for winning at poker, though he gets even better under the tutelage of grizzled ex-gambler Tommy (Burt Reynolds). Then, of course, the protégé and the pro go head to head in a high-stakes game.

Oh, and Shannon Elizabeth (who still takes part in scripted projects, who knew?) plays a high-class prostitute. So. There's that.

Deal opens in limited release Friday April 25. To check out the preview,

Hahahaha "So. There's that." Buzz, that cracked me up! I agree though. Cute guy, lame movie. Sad...

Sounds to me more like a "poor man's Rounders" than a "poor man's 21" but tomato, tomahto, still sounds lame.

I adore Bret Harrison, but fear this won't be very good.
