Goofs

When officer Chandler shows the councilman the staged video of the casino owners calling him short and still running a casino in another location, the video was filmed in the old house as evidenced by the stairs and carpet. This could not have been done as that house was burned down at this point in the movie. Also, it was clearly not a different location as was stated in the scene. See more »

Quotes

Frank: Are you guys familiar with the cliché, 'It's a cliché because it's true'? Well, that cliché about clichés being true has never more true than right now with the cliché, 'The house always wins.

Not the best with Will Ferrell
29 September 2017 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

The first two pages of reviews I read all gave this movie a one star rating. I can get that it is not the best Will Ferrell movie ever but it deserves more than a one star rating. So I'll give it a six just to balance the ratings a bit better. But I'm aware it's not a great movie. And I am a big Will Ferrell fan, as well as for Amy Poehler. So when I saw they both played in this movie I was a bit excited. A bit too over-excited when I saw the final outcome. Besides a couple good laughing moments the rest of the movie is a bit bland. The story is about okay, at least for a comedy, but it clearly lacks some convincing acting. But I don't regret watching it, like some do, I just was expecting better. I guess for watching it once it's okay, just for the couple laughs I had.
