EVEN MONEY is an underwhelming multiple-storyline drama a la Crash or an Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu film. Here, instead of human tragedy connecting all the characters, the glue is gambling. None of the characters gets a winning hand, of course, but with such flat characterizations (with the exception of Clyde and Godfrey), nobody's worthy of viewers' empathy anyway.
