Does poker movie hit the nuts?

Thursday, 17 March 2011

With the honourable exception of Rounders, good poker movies are pretty thin on the ground but a new independent comedy from across the pond could be worth a look.

Hitting The Nuts is a Christopher Guest style spoof centred on an illegal poker championship and according to the producers features “an outrageous group of blue-blooded American misfits who have spent a lot less time hitting than nuts in life. And a lot more time having life return the favor”.

“We made a ridiculous movie on purpose,” said actor and director Joe Boyd “The poker community has been burnt by a series of unpopular, terrible movies over the last five years. I think people like this movie so much because it takes nothing seriously. It’s a complete silly farce. It’s like the movie Airplane…if Airplane was a fake documentary about poker.”
