We Love Poker Movies

Years ago we wrote about the movie; “The Grand,” an improvisational comedy, which takes a stab at the often hilarious look at what happens at the, sometimes crazed, high stakes poker tables.
So, if you love movies, comedy, and poker then this movie will have you in stitches. It may not help you with your poker skills but you may recognize some of this behavior exhibited by way too many players from Vegas to Macau and anywhere poker is played.
“The Grand” stars Woody Harrelson along with Jason Alexander, Ray Romano, Werner Herzog, Cheryl Hines, David Cross, Dennis Ferrina, Richard Kind, Gabe Kaplan, and Chris Parnell. And, naturally any poker movie should include lots of cameos from real poker stars and poker-celebrities like Doyle Brunson, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Laak, Daniel Negreanu and many more.
This is one movie where you may see anything from a giant pair of sunglasses to some jumbo playing cards and pass for cool. We certainly have seen some of these shenanigans at almost every tournament we have played.
