Drama
Was the world aching for a movie about online gambling? If so, was it aching for a movie about online gambling where Justin Timberlake gets beaten up a lot while looking real scared most of the time as Ben Affleck feeds poultry to his pet crocodiles? Timberlake plays a college student making his tuition through online gambling. After possibly getting hustled, he travels to Costa Rica to get in the face of the guy in charge of the gambling site (Affleck). He winds up getting a job and thrusting himself into a seedy online gambling underworld that involves running around a lot and acting real confused. Timberlake is an actor who can look really good, or really, really lost. This time he’s in lost mode. As for Affleck, I kind of like him in this movie, and enjoy when he plays bad guys. The movie lets him down in a big way with its silly subplots and failed attempts at being clever.
