Not geared for young teens, but pretty clean movie for most

This movie would be difficult for younger viewers to follow. It is not obvious about the character development and thus the positive messages that come to light later on may not make sense to them. It is definitely a pro-gambling movie with alot of bad role models and make the lifestyle seem glamorous and thus my $ and bad role models ratings.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
Great messages
not rated for age


I'm not a big gambler and I don't necessarily understand the rules of Poker but I truely liked the movie. It was refreshing. hardly any violence, no overt in your face sexuality, cussing was minimum.. I do not agree with the rating, because of the high amount of reckless behavior, compulsive gambling, and the large quanity of liquor consumed. I do not believe any child undre 17 should see this because of these reasons.
