Overview

Director Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen) reunites with screenwriter D.V. DeVincentis to tell the seriocomic story of a kindhearted Florida stripper who becomes a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, but finds her luck running out after befriending a professional sports gambler with a jealous wife. Convinced that there's more to life than peeling off skimpy outfits for leering bar patrons, exotic dancer Beth Raymer (Rebecca Hall) opts to try her luck as a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, and quickly makes the acquaintance of Dink (Bruce Willis) -- a man with a talent for making quick cash on winning sports teams. When Dink hires Beth to place wagers at multiple casinos, they quickly discover she's got a knack for numbers, and form a lucrative partnership. But all good things must come to an end, and when Dink's jealous wife Tulip (Catherine Zeta-Jones) catches wind of the relationship she insists that her husband fire his new good-luck charm immediately. Dejected, Beth takes flight to New York, where her winning streak comes to a sudden end after she goes to work for a shady bookie.
