This week's reviewed movie is:
Lucky You

Lucky You is a mixed-up romantic comedy set in the Las Vegas poker world.

It shows the funky rundown sides rather than all the glitz and glitter of Vegas, and, yes, there's even a championship show-down poker game.

I found this hit-and-miss movie is worth seeing just for the hits--but if you're betting that it's got some surprises up its sleeve, you're out of luck.

Those of you looking for a romantic pairing will be sorely disappointed in Lucky You, a poker film with no heart, diamonds, spades, or clubs.

With zero chemistry shared between the two leads, it's up to the scenes on the green felt to peak your curiosity -- and that's a royal flush!

Bluff? Call me!

The subject of the movie Lucky You is gambling, which addresses the themes of obsession and redemption.

The story is a test of wills between father and son, mentor and student, and ego-driven opponents.

The force and interesting appearance that drive the main character in this film is the way in which he interacts with those around him.

The cast and production are dramatically solid.
