The High Roller (2003) Movie
Plot Summary: As poker movies go this one drops the serious aspects for some comic relief. Woody Harrelson, Cheryl Hines, Richard Kind and Burt Reynolds round out the cast in this quirky comedy that on the whole is a work of improvation. Each character has their own brand of weirdness going on including the Russian and his myriad of caged animals, (Please don’t ask what he done with the bunny!) This movie is pretty much a gathering of well known and little known actors having a good time playing poker. Critics have been harsh in their assessment but for a laugh or two, it really is not that bad.
Quotes From High Roller
Andrew N.S. Glazer: And Al, the amazing thing about this is, that Stuey would be achieving that feat after sixteen years of personal struggle, where victories were really few and far between.
Al Bernstein: And standing between Stuey and history is John Stremp, a local casino executive who’s shown remarkable fortitude, actually, in making it to this point. And here it is, Stu is raising enough to put Stremp all in.
