Goofs

Around 5 minutes, 40 seconds (5:40), Joshua and Diaz ate playing Texas Hold'em, a popular type of poker game. Diaz says, "Raise" and puts some chips in the pot. He makes 2 errors by doing this. Anyone familiar with any variety of poker games knows someone has to make a bet first before some can "raise it". Diaz simply said "Raise" before any bet. Also, you always state the amount you are betting; however, Diaz didn't do this either. Both of these are obvious mistakes. See more »

Nice storyline and interesting movie. If this would have been higher budget it would have been executed better.
