Mandatory viewing for all compulsive gamblers ..........
19 December 2011 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

"One Last Ride" may hit a little too close to home for anyone with a gambling problem. Yet, the movie clearly shows the self destructive behavior in a way that is both entertaining and educational. The lying, cheating, stealing, and everything else that goes with this life destroying disease is on display. Chazz Palminterri, and Charles Durning are especially good in their supporting roles. Patrick Cupo plays the addict who is in way over his head, and drowning in his addiction. His friends and spouse, as is all too typical, become the lied to and cheated. The lesson here is that no one wins. Mandatory viewing for all compulsive gamblers. - MERK
