We gave it a B

William H. Macy stars as a luckless loser who makes a career from his misfortune at a casino owned by an old friend (Alec Baldwin). But just as his fate changes (think Maria Bello), a surprise visitor puts him in the middle of a dilemma. A hit at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was picked up for a cool $1.5 mil.
