Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • SPOILER: Although the film takes place during a fictitious World Series of Poker Tournament in 2003. Some of the events depicted and referenced in the movie's tournament are remarkably close to real life. In 2003, the World Series of Poker's Main Event had 839 players, like in the movie. It was eventually won by an amateur playing in his first live tournament, who qualified on-line, Chris Moneymaker in real life, Jason Keyes (Evan Jones) in the film. The eventual winner would go on to defeat veteran pro poker player to win the tournament, Sam Farha in real life, L.C. Cheever (Robert Duvall) in the film. And the tournament's winner would go on to win the top prize of $2.5 million. Farha's line, "This guy over there, he never played a live tournament in his life... and he beat me. I don't know if this makes me feel better or worse" could be a reference to his actual loss to Moneymaker, as well.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): At the beginning of the final scene in Dino's parking lot, the wide shot shows a car backing onto the street. In the next frame (narrow shot), the car has disappeared.
  • The portrait (actually an enlarged photograph) hung on the wall during the final WSOP match is that of Benny Binion, the original owner of the Horseshoe, taken at his ranch in Montana.
  • Was initially scheduled for a release date of September 8, 2006. It was then pushed back to March 16, 2007. It was pushed back once more, before finally being released on May 4, 2007. Several posters were already made up for the film that still had it's original release date of September 8, 2006 on it.
