Movies on Gambling
Can anyone recommend some good movies about gambling? What are your favorites?

One movie that I really enjoyed on the subject was Rounders.

Another one I watched recently that didn't really do it for me was 21. While the basis of the story was very intriguing to me, the movie disappointed a little.

I watched rounders long time ago and I liked it. 21 was ok but nothing special.

- Casino with De Niro is based on the book by Larry Shandling and Nicholas Pileggi, it's a classic, a must watch

- Two for the Money with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey was good. It's about sports betting business and the excitment

- Casino Royale if you like to watch James Bond winning once again

Oh man, I forgot about Casino with DeNiro and Casino Royale! Those movies are great too. I will have to check out Two for the Money; I like Pacino's work.

I hear the movie 21 was quite different from the book that inspired it:

I didn't read the book, but it was quite different from the History Channel doccumentary. I didn't care for the movie much. Too unbelievable and the unbelievable parts were an insult to your intelligence.

Casino Royale - my favorite movie about gambling online bingo
seen 21 as well- not bad but lacking some great stuff that they could possibly add
