I have to say I really enjoyed this film. I saw it at Tribeca lastmonth and to be honest I didn't have high expectations. I personallydon't like most of the movies the writer/director (Zak Penn) haswritten of late (mostly big action comic book movies), but this is notthat kind of film.What honestly ...
Every once in a while a filmmaker is brave enough to try something alittle different. This is one of those occasions and it deservesbountiful praise for both bravery and laughs. The cast is excellent and weird while the story-lines are randomlyweaved together gems of the absurd and quirky. Further, ...
I just saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival. It was hard to geta ticket to the show and I waited in line for a while. I was lucky toget in because it was raining. But once I got inside, I forgot allabout being wet because I was laughing too hard.Now let me just say that I'm not a fan of Zack ...
It's hard to be a poker fan in the world of movies. Let's face it, howmany great poker movies can you think of? "Rounders" perhaps. Despite"Texas Hold'Em" growing extraordinarily popular over the last fewyears, Hollywood has really failed to capitalize on the trend. I'mhappy to report that the wait ...
Being a regular poker player myself, i was probably more interested inwatching this, than a non poker player, but you do not have to be anavid poker fan to enjoy this movie, though it would be slightly moreinteresting if you was.Although the main basis of the film is about 6 people who have made the...
Yes, its silly, but so was Spinal Tap, which The Grand owes a debt toin many ways.Gabe Kaplan is hilarious as the father of two poker pros and DennisFarina has the old time Vegas hood down pat. Phil Gordon, the best liveteacher in poker, has some great lines as the tournament commentator.You will sp...
So I managed to see The Grand a little while ago at the Puerto VallartaFilm Festival... I had no idea what to expect, as I am admittedly notparticularly familiar with the director's other work. I knew some ofthe actors, but I'm not intimately familiar with their work, either,except for Woody Harrels...
I don't find a lot of films very funny. The Grand made me laugh frombeginning to end. I had no idea what to expect going into the film, butI can tell you that I cannot wait to see it again and have recommendedit to everyone I know. The cast is outstanding. Woody Harrelson wascompletely in his elemen...
I'm not much interested in poker. Actually, I even don't play well. So,when I heard about this movie, I didn't pay much attention to it. Butone day, I even can't explain why, I had a wish to watch it, maybebecause a lot of really great actors play there. The main thing I wantto say about it, is that...
I really love this movie ... some of the set pieces are exquisitelytimed and are truly very funny, Woody Harrelson is very good throughoutand holds everything together well, Chris Parnell is at timeshilarious, Gale Kaplan and Werner Herzog put in two brilliant topdrawer comic cameos, and even Phil G...
a comedy-poker film immediately sounds like a flop but this deliversand has some genuinely funny moments. There's a great cast here andsome great cameos to boot, David cross and chris parnell, perhaps twoof the lesser-known "stars" had me in stitches at times. You can easilyenjoy the movie with no k...
The main reason I rented The Grand from the video store was because ofthe huge amount of stars in this movie. First you have Woody Harrelson,David Cross, Gabe Kaplan, Ray Romano, etc. This movie is packed with aton of stars that have made huge success in their own right. I thoughtthat the movie was ...
This movie was sublime. I love improvisation and it was so interestingto see this ensemble cast able to do this. I loved how the games thatthey were playing was in an actual tournament, which I had no idea ofwhilst watching the movie, only after reading this IMDb profile. It isalso interesting to no...
Very funny and hilarious movie showing the colorful and oddpersonalities in the poker world. Some real pro-poker players staringthis movie so their interaction with the actors is even more funny. Asabsurd and funny some scenes may seem as a guy who watch and play pokera lot it brings me so many memo...
Although this movie is no "Rounders" it does give a pretty good view ofpoker. The characters are interesting and the poker is pretty precise.There might have been some more about poker and less silly jokes. A fewscenes could have been cut out of the movie. Really, I found the pokervery interesting b...
I can see where this movie would polarize people.I think people will like this the most who - a) Have a dry sense ofhumor b) Like "quirky" movies c) Have played and more importantly,watched enough poker on TV to recognize some of the people beingparodiedIf you have only (a) and (b) going for you, yo...
There are so many nuggets of gold in this flick that every time I watchit I take away something new. Because I'm an avid poker player I catcha great many of the inside jokes and much of the subtext that those whodon't play are bound to miss; including the fact that several wellknown players are not ...
In many, many ways, this is highly reminiscent of the mockumentariesmade by Christopher Guest--especially "Best in Show". So, the ideaisn't super original--but it is rather enjoyable. One thing you shouldbe aware of, however, is that the movie is a bit crude--so you mightwant to think twice about ha...
The first three-quarters of Zak Penn's "The Grand" are hilarious,especially for avid fans of No Limit Texas Hold 'Em -- you know, thetypes of fans who understand whom the characters satirize: Lainie Schwartzman is Annie Duke, Larry Schwartzman is Phil Hellmuth(though the brother/sister storyline mir...
I don't know anything about poker, but I'm always fascinated byinteresting, unusual people. This film was a study of a group of uniquecharacters who all share an obsession for poker and have come to playin a very high stakes tournament in Las Vegas. In documentary style, weget to know each of the ch...
The writing is hilarious. David Crook is unbelievable. wish more movieswere this funny. so happy with it. if u like arrested development uwill like this. if u watch realty TV shows don't bother - you FOOL * Fears of rotation and correction after sector outperformance aredominating conversations. Les...
"The Grand Championship of Poker", held at the Golden Nugget Hotel inLas Vegas, furnishes the backdrop for this cleverly constructedmockumentary that will please aficionados of the card game, althoughviewers not conversant with the rules of poker will understandably bemore interested in the personal...
The Grand (2008)*** Zak Penn, writer of various superhero pictures, makes his return to thedirectors chair in this wildly uneven but nevertheless entertainingimprovisational comedy. The film chronicles various poker players asthey try to win big at The Grand Tournament in Las Vegas. Among theplayers...
If you like and have played Texas hold 'em, you will find this movieentertaining as s**t ;] and you will rate it 9/10.I like and have played Texas hold 'em......don't know why rated it 8/10.To kick few more lines for getting my review posted I also say thateven if you haven't played Texas Hold 'em, ...
I'd be hard-pressed to even classify this as a 'real' movie...It's moreof a display of Penn's attempt at 'riding on the edge' of anyconventional-type comedy film, meaning it's an(obviously)'improvisational comedy that centers around a cardgame ('TheGrand')...Fairly enough, it's taglined as 'an impro...
