A Big Hand for the Little Lady - 1966
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageSettlers Meredith (Henry Fonda), Mary (Joanne Woodward) and their young son stop in Laredo on their way to California, just as the five richest men in the territory gather for a once-a-year, high-stakes poker game, among them larger-than-life Henry P.G. Drummond (Jason Robards), who won't let something so trivial as his daughter's wedding interfere with the game. Recovering gambler Meredith can't resist the temptation and buys in by putting up all the money he and his wife have saved to buy a farm. He suffers a heart attack during a hand. Doc Joseph Scully (Burgess Meredith) prohibits him from playing anymore, so Mary takes over, even though she doesn't know how to play and over the loud objections of the other players. The betting continues and she doesn't have enough money to call. She then takes her cards over to the bank and shows owner C.P. Bellinger (Paul Ford) her hand; he promptly advances her the money. She wins the hand (and a huge amount of money) and leaves, her determination earning her the admiration of the men. Drummond is so touched by this that, when he gets home to the waiting wedding ceremony, he talks to his weak-willed future son-in-law in private, gives him some money and orders him to run away from his worthless daughter. In the final scene, it is revealed that the whole thing was a scam. Meredith, Mary and even their "son" are con artists and expert card sharps. Mary is really the girlfriend of the mastermind of the caper, Bellinger, who wanted revenge for being bilked years ago by the players.

High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story - 2003
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageBased on a true story, Michael Imperioli stars as poker legend, Stu Ungar. A gambler by the age of 10, Ungar won millions playing card games. He was one of two people ever to win the World Series of Poker three times - twice before age 26. But, in spite of his success, a life of excess and addiction left him in tremendous debt and could only end in tragedy. Stu Ungar (played here by SOPRANOS star Michael Imperioli) carved out a name for himself by amassing a small fortune in gambling winnings after taking up poker at an early age. Now his story is laid bare in HIGH ROLLER. A three-time winner of the Poker World Series, Stu seemed to have it all. But sadly, his motivation for playing was fuelled by an addiction to gambling that could only lead to a sorry end. Imperioli fulfills his role as Stu with extreme pathos, illustrating how gambling can topple an individual from a lofty peek, and ultimately be as dangerous as heroin, crack, or cocaine.

Honeymoon In Vegas - 1992
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageJack Singer (Cage) has sworn to his mother while she was on her deathbed that he would never get married. Years later, he goes back on his promise and proposes to his girlfriend, Betsy (Parker), and quickly arranges a Las Vegas marriage. They check into the Bally's Hotel. Before the wedding, however, a wealthy professional gambler, Tommy Korman (Caan) arranges a poker game where Jack loses $65,000. Korman promises to erase the debt if he can spend the weekend with Singer's fiancée. Korman had seen Betsy suntanning near the pool and early at the conceirge desk and was reminded of his wife who had died of skin cancer, so he had personally choosen Singer knowing he could beat him. After agreeing to no sexual activity, they agree to go through with this.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - 1998
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageAside from the wild ride we enjoy with a set of four friends who are trying to find a way to pay off a poker game gone wrong, director/writer Guy Ritchie's stylish film debut features an ending so clever that it manages to outshine the whole fantastic movie. But half the fun is getting there: Tom (Flemyng), Bacon (Statham), Soap (Dexter Fletcher) and Eddie (Nick Moran) pool £100,000 cash (much of it ill-gotten) to stake Eddie in a high-stakes poker game with local kingpin Hatchet Harry. But little do the pals know that Harry has fixed the game ahead of time--and what seemed like a sure thing has instead left them £800,000 in debt to Harry, with just a week to raise the cash before he starts breaking body parts on each of them. Their next scheme: to rob Eddie's next-door-neighbors, who happen to be drug dealers. But they're not the only ones with their eyes on that particular jackpot, and the fact that the neighbors are the most bumbling drug dealers on the planet thwarts everyone's plans and saves most of their lives. The jackpot scene: That ending. Tom, Bacon, Soap and Eddie somehow manage to escape with appendages intact, but their misdirected focus, despite Tom's fascination with a pair of antique guns, means they may haplessly miss their only real chance at snagging a small fortune.

Luckytown - 2000
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageTwo kids from Nebraska, Lidda (Kirsten Dunst) and Colonel (Vincent Kartheiser), set out on a road trip to Las Vegas with individual aspirations.

Along the way, the couple falls in love, but their relationship as well as their lives are threatened when Colonel gets mixed-up with a local gangster named Tony, (Robert Miano) who just happens to be Charlie's poker playing archenemy. When push comes to shove, Lidda and Colonel are forced gamble with the highest stakes of all... their lives.

Rounders - 1998
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageWant a simple explanation of No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em poker? Rounders gambler-turned-law student Mike McDermott (Damon) provides it in the movie's opening moments ... right before he demonstrates, in a devastating hand of poker, how easy and quick it is to lose $25,000 in one misread of a fellow player. Mike quickly vows that he's retired as a gambler, and takes a truck driving job to pay his tuition. Then along comes Worm (Norton), his childhood pal, who's sprung from jail and looking for Mike to help him pay off some hefty debts. It doesn't take a lot of persuasion before Mike is out of retirement and making the rounds of some high-stakes games. Though director John Dahl (The Last Seduction) doesn't skimp on showing the seedier elements of the professional-gambler lifestyle and of the dire circumstances a losing player can quickly find himself in, the movie's also somewhat refreshing. Ultimately, Mike is forced to admit that he's been turning his back on the game because other people have a problem with it. What Mike wants: to chuck law school and head off to Vegas for the World Series of Poker. The jackpot scene: Mike's $60,000 poker triumph over KGB (John Malkovich), who beat him in the movie's opening game. Damon, who prepared for the movie by playing in the World Series of Poker (where he lost to legend Doyle Brunson), conveys with a simple facial expression the exact second Mike knows he has KGB, and it's as thrilling and satisfying a moment as you'll find in any movie about poker.

Shade - 2004
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageSet in the underground world of Los Angeles card sharks and gamblers, this slick neo-noir is a gripping ensemble drama that pays homage to hard-boiled heist directors like Mamet and Scorsese. SHADE, a gambling term for deception and trickery, revolves around a ring of small-time hustlers with dreams of the big payoff. Tiffany (Thandie Newton) is a beautiful and calculating swindler who works together with her partner Charlie (Gabriel Byrne) in nickel-and-dime schemes. But when one card shark, The Dean (Sylvester Stallone), seems to be unbeatable, they devise a scheme to topple his flawless run. They recruit Tiffany's old flame, Vernon (Stuart Townsend) a card mechanic and sleight-of-hand genius and hustler Jennings (Jamie Foxx) to maneuver their way on to The Dean's poker table. But all is not what it seems in this twisting and turning thriller: deception abounds. Secret love affairs and allegiances are kindled, and The Dean, whom everyone is trying to hustle, plays a dirty game with the help of his ex-girlfriend, Eve (Melanie Griffith). In a game of who's cheating whom, each player becomes a pawn in another's swindle. Debut writer-director Damian Nieman films the card tricks with flair, making the poker-faced manipulations visible to the viewer and adding to the high stakes tension of the film.

The Cincinnati Kid - 1965
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageNot only is it one of the best gambling movies of all-time, it's also one of those rare movies that's better than the book it's based on. Epitome of cool McQueen is the titular Kid, a cocky poker player in Depression Era New Orleans who holds markers from everyone in town. But the Kid is only interested in "The Man," a.k.a. aging five-card-stud legend Lancey Howard (Edward G. Robinson), who the Kid challenges to a high-stakes game. One of director Norman Jewison's best early flicks (based on Richard Jessup's more tame novel) and one of McQueen's finest performances, the movie's pivotal game is refreshingly free of the do-or-die cliché of most movies about poker. Kid's best friend, card dealer Shooter (Karl Malden), is pressured by a local fat cat into fixing the game for Kid. Kid finds out and insists his pal be a straight Shooter, because his sole goal is proving that he can beat Lancey and take the title of five-card-stud stud. The jackpot scene: The flick's thrilling final poker scene, a back-and-forth match that leaves you both heartbroken and oddly satisfied.

The Sting - 1973
Gambling Movie Thumbnail ImageRedford (nominated for Best Actor) re-teams with his Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid partner Newman as Johnny Hooker and Henry Gondorff, a couple of 1930s confidence men who plot a wickedly elaborate swindle of mobster Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). Lonnegan is a local baddie who has drawn the ire of a whole group of con men with his cheatin' ways and his murder of their beloved fellow grifter (and Hooker's partner) Luther. The winding sting unfolds with style (thanks to authentic '30s sets, automobiles and costumes from famed Oscar-winning designer Edith Head), humor and a jazzy soundtrack (the movie brought about a revival of Scott Joplin's ragtime music), and so many twists that, as the old cliché goes, you can't always tell the players without a score card. In fact, the Best Picture winner takes so many twists and turns that, if you know the final surprise before it's revealed, it's probably only because you wrote the script. The jackpot scene: Newman's masterful poker game with Lonnegan, when he cheats the cheat, while giving the impression that he's drunk off a bottle of gin (which is really filled with water).
