      Ben Kenigsberg Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Richard Roeper Ebert & Roeper They've got to do something else with these poker movies. Apr 28, 2008 Full Review Mark Olsen Los Angeles Times Reynolds doesn't convey any of the lightning bolt insouciance that made him arguably the greatest movie star of the '70s and '80s (really) but rather just stands there. Rated: 1/5 Apr 25, 2008 Full Review Kelly Vance East Bay Express An embarrassingly toothless and endlessly boring story about characters we barely get to know doing things that are more exciting than they make it seem.

      bryan b Unremarkable poker movie with all the clichés you would expect. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Employing multiple cinematic cliches and milking stale performances, "Deal" proves inadequate for even the lowly regarded poker movie genre. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm a fan of poker movies and I go easy on them I liked it it was cheesy it was predictable but it was fun and the poker scenes were decent some of them were good an overall decent film Grade B Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Deal lacks the pace and charm of Rounders, which is a superior sports film. Deal looks and feels low budget which works against it. If it were a poker hand i'd fold no second guessing. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member shallow poker movie... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member It's called Deal. It's a movie about Texas Hold'em. Big surprise. The movie was good, I suppose. It didn't suck anyway. I liked the ending, it was predictable - but it was the ending I wanted so all was right with the world. ;) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
