(1966; Henry Fonda, Joanne Woodward, Jason Robards)

"This film is about a poker game. At first this movie was annoying. The cowboys were just a little too excited about the backroom poker game and kept pesterin good ole Same about who be a winnin. The cowboys are a little too excited period. Maybe they were drinkin that new fangled product Coca Cola which originally had cocaine in it if I remember my soft drink history. But thankfully the movie then focuses more on the poker game in the backroom and there are only periodic showings of the bounce off the wall gang. This movie gets better and better throughout. I ended up enjoying this movie. This movie has a surprise ending!"
