For those who feel that same thrill about Texas hold ’em poker as they did when it first hit the mainstream years ago, Deal is a poker-filled story of a brash young poker wiz being trained by an old pro who missed his chance. For everyone else, it’s an overdone sports film cliché with poker thrown in.

Of course, those who are most likely to enjoy this movie will be more interested in the poker celebrities like Vincent Van Patten, Phil Laak and Antonio Esfandiari who are featured in the film.

The DVD has one bonus feature – a short video that claims to be poker tips. Unfortunately, the information they give is too basic for poker fans and not simple enough for new players.
