Rounders DVD Description
A law school student (Matt Damon) loses his tuition money and everything else he has saved in a high stakes poker game. Learning his lesson (he thinks), he vows to his girl friend (Mol Gretchen) to give up playing forever. That lasts until his best friend (Edward Norton), a notorious card shark, is released from prison and drags him back into the circuit to pay debts he has incurred to a Russian mobster (John Malkovich). John Turturro also appears as a career poker player and Martin Landau plays a law professor who understands his student's need to be something other than what is dictated to him.

Rounders DVD Review
Rounders is a brilliant movie about a poker player(Matt Damon) and his inner struggle with the game of poker. He loses his entire fortune to a Russian mafia and promises his girlfriend that he would stop playing poker for good. Unfortunely for him, his friend, "The Worm" (Edward Norton), just got out of prison, and soon they're both hustling poker games all over New York. The duo gets caught cheating, debts are rising, tension starts mounting, and the drama begins.

"If you don't know who the sucker is within the first 30 minutes, then the sucker is you." This infamous quote has been used over and over after the movie came out. Rounders was the first big screen movie to feature Texas Hold Em. There is even a guest appearance by Johnny Chan (winner of back to back WSOP). This is one movie that poker fans will watch over and over. The way the story is told will appeal to non poker players as well. Rounders is one movie that all poker players should own. rates this DVD a perfect score of 5 out of 5.
