William Meeker’s review published on Letterboxd :
POKER NIGHT starts out with a premise that seems promising, at least in the first act. However, the plot deteriorates as it strives to sustain its flashback-flashforward structural pattern in the second act. The two-dimensionality of the main characters becomes apparent as this structure gradually falls apart. By trying too hard to be clever, this film becomes a parody of itself by the third act.
