I’m thankful for the number of people who have viewed this site over the last few months.  I’m not as impressed, however, by the limited amount of participation.  In this day and age where everyone, everywhere, spouts their opinion about the goofiest subjects, why haven’t the masses participated in this fun-loving forum?  Maybe this post will bring you out of the woodwork.

In your opinion, what is the best movie or TV scene involving the game of blackjack?  [You get extra points for attaching a link to the source.]

      I agree with you, DJ. That scene is “MONEY”…one of the most realistic depictions of rookie gamblers anywhere. However, it was Jon Favreau, not Vince Vaughn, who lost the chips quickly. Here is the clip:

    What about all of the movie 21? Or do you expert players think it is too much hollywood?

      I liked the movie, Lisa, because of the accurate depiction of the adrenaline rush that the kid initially experienced. I’ve had the same thing happen to me many times, although with not as many zeroes in my winning numbers. What the movie didn’t show is all the meaningless hands that happen before and after the exciting card-counting bet sequences.
