    I did a search BTW.

    Has anyone heard of this movie coming out to the theaters? My fiance and I saw a glimps of a trailer a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure it's not going to win any academy awards, but I love movies on this subject. Any information out there?

    Thanks.

    I assume you're referring to Poolhall Junkies. It's currently playing in New York, but I'm not sure where else. (And no, I haven't seen it and probably will not have time before it vanishes.)

    Thanks Michael. I found a review at Excite. It's also playing in Chicago. I wonder if anyone will pick it up in Milwaukee. I'd still like to see it, despite the mediocre review.

    I was all set to see it at my "$5 Tuesday" theater, but the timing didn't work out (I ended up seeing Dark Blue, The Recruit and Gangs of New York) but I'll be going next Tuesday.

    Ebert liked it and, in this case anyway, that's good enough for me.

    Vickie,

    Could you post some opinions after you see it?
