    Very Funny & Poignant Drama-Comedy

    This very endearing comedy has everything you could want: Charming lead actors, very funny supporting cast, and an a completely original story line. I was hooked by Justin Long from the very beginning. Rob Corddry is hysterical as the Mayor of the small town that might be getting a new casino. Emmanuel Chriqui is sexy as the town bad girl that Long falls for. There are also surprisingly great performances from David Jensen (a frequent actor for Stephen Soderbergh) and Keir O'Donnell as Long's best friend. The ending is a big surprise and really makes a great point about what the potential contradictions in American values when money is on the line.
