Product Overview

Ante up for a sure entertainment bet from L.A. Confidential director Curtis Hanson who co-wrote this charmer with fellow Academy Award winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump). Pro gambler Huck Cheever (Eric Bana) meets irresistible Billie Offer (Drew Barrymore) and learns to treat love the way he treats cards: trusting his heart instead of his head. He also scrambles to raise the entry fee for the high-roller World Series of Poker even though - or maybe because - the tournament may pit him against his estranged father (Robert Duvall) a two-time Series winner.Running Time: 124 min. Format: DVD MOVIE. Genre: COMEDY. Rating: PG-13. Age: 012569701410. UPC: 012569701410. Manufacturer No: 70141

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Like most movies concerned to one degree or another with the subject of gambling, Lucky You addresses the themes of obsession and redemption. The film loosely follows the trajectory of an "addiction movie," although it's less grim than pictures of this sort that deal with drug and alcohol dependency. The compelling and interesting aspect of Lucky You is not so much the compulsion that drives the main character but the way in which he interacts with those around him...It's something of a mystery why this movie has languished in-house so long at Warner Brothers...Director Curtis Hanson (8 Mile, L.A. Confidential) is well-respected. The cast includes three A-list stars and a number of prominent secondary players...The production, despite uneven pacing, is dramatically solid as it tills the fertile ground of fractured father/son relationships...Lucky You isn't Hanson's best movie but it's a respectable effort and deserves more of a chance to be seen than the one it's getting.

Review Curtis Hanson's "Lucky You" is such an unassuming, unflashy picture that I fear it's doomed: Eric Bana plays Huck, a talented Las Vegas poker player with an unfortunate tendency to let his emotions get the better of him at the table, particularly when his poker-champ dad, L.C. (Robert Duvall), is staring him down from the other side..."Lucky You" treads no new territory: We're talking about a character with your garden-variety father issues and commitment issues. Barrymore's Billie is the kind of radiant charmer who wants to believe she can soothe the soul of the damaged gambler; naturally, he resists. And when Duvall's L.C. makes his entrance here, striding toward a table at which Bana's Huck is already seated, you can almost see the molecules of resentment dancing in the air between them.
