We gave it a C

A Best in Show-style comedy set in the world of pro poker, The Grand stars Woody Harrelson, David Cross, Cheryl Hines…and Rescue Dawn/Grizzly Man director Werner Herzog, who plays a gambler. How’d the art-house auteur end up doing improv comedy? Most likely as a favor to director Zak Penn (they worked together on 2004’s Incident at Loch Ness). Either way, it’s gotta be funnier than watching a guy get eaten by a bear. (March 21)
