    WOW, great movie I thought.

    Many of you do not like Matt Damon but I think he is a terrific actor who chooses his roles pretty carefully aside from his counterpart.

    Question, does anyone else not think this movie deserves a audio commentary?

    I enjoy this movie quite a bit. I agree a commentary could be fun. I hadn't even heard of this movie until Big Star, remember them, had a big sale on it ($14 I think). At that time a few friends recommended it and I bit. Glad I did.

    Everytime my buddies and I play poker, we always hope someone brings the Oreos so we can mock KGB. It's a good "small" film with good actors in it.

    one of my favorite dvds in my collection. Great movie, great transfer, great performances by Malkovich, Norton, Damon, etc. A commentary would have been a nice added bonus but is not needed for me to enjoy this fine flick.

    Malkovich is great in it. It's a great "small" film and sorely underrated. It's a fun watch. Some moments in it are really memorable; we too gather up oreos when we play poker [​IMG]

    I like this one a lot. Everyone brings something nice to the table, from Norton and Damon on down to Famke in a somewhat small role. And the dialogue is perfect for the material. One of the roles that I think Damon exceeded my expectations about.

    I recommend this one to anyone who asks.

    You know, I too thought the dialogue was perfect in this film. Great script.

    Great movie - I play Hold'm for 20 hours a week and while there are a few small holes, for a poker movie it's super. The only reason it was not a it was it is like Bagger Vance and catered to a smll audiance.

    I have not seen the DVD and is on my "should I get it?" list.

    Malkovich is great.

    BTW - it the guy was actually a great player the oreo's would not have happened but . . . . .it's a movie :)

    I love this flick,

    We try to watch this movie before every poker game to get in the "spirit". Then the whole time we play we quote the movie.
