A gambling cowboy is determined to enter a huge poker tournament but the only problem is, he is short of another $3,000 before he can enter so with the help of his rabble of friends, he sets about collecting all his debts, while gambling a little naturally, to raise the entrance fee.
Mel Gibson was in his mid-90's prime when he made this remake of the successful TV series. The plot is one the original writers would have been proud of and with Garner, himself, appearing it gives the film a seal of approval. A rare performance from Foster who is surprisingly funny and Molina giving a good supporting performance, it's an enjoyable family film.
