    The Gambler 2014

    ★★ Added

    Strangely uninvolving, given the talent involved.

    ★★ Added

    A handful of brilliant gags but for the most part there's something a bit off and, frankly, sad about seeing them dressed as Harry and Lloyd again. A lot of the humour is pretty tone deaf ("show us your tits" being a real low point) and there's a bizarre decision to revere the first like it is some sort of emotional touchstone - which reaches a nadir in the ludicrously soppy end credits - rather than the silly and very funny film it actually was.

    Possibly some of the clunkiest dialogue ever written, performed in some of the most astonishingly bad accents ever committed to film - and a huge huge waste of the potential of its cast. This gets 1 and a half stars for a couple of good action scenes and half a star for introducing me to the phrase "mfwic"
