Sorry about all the movie reviews...maybe I should become a critic! I feel lame because these movies are on video and all of you have already probably seen them already, but oh well. I do enjoy reading your comments.This movie was interesting. Very unlike I had anticipated. I had heard good things about it. First of all, did anyone else think the professor was awful? I couldn't believe how he manipulated the students and if they didn't do things "his way" he failed them! Also, it was kind of an awkward teacher/student relationship, wouldn't you agree? Something just felt wrong about it... a secret gambling club, that just brings up tons of red flags for me. Secondly, it was dumb of the kid to hide his money in the ceiling, I mean, c'mon! With that much you better believe it's going straight to the bank! I felt kind of bad at the end when he tricked the professor. What ever happened to "do unto others" or "forgive and forget." I know I would've probably done the same thing though. That's a lot of money to lose. And then to have to give it to that dumb security guy at the end. I had the end figured out though, I knew he'd end up getting the scholarship anyway, so it all turned out in the end, right?
Moral: gambling is addictive and can control your life. Just say no! Nice idea though, can you imagine?
