The Cooler

Bernie Lootz (William H. Macy) has such terrible luck that a Vegas casino owner uses him as a "cooler": no sooner does Bernie join a crap game than anyone with a hot hand immediately begins to lose. But then Bernie falls in love with a young cocktail waitress, Natalie (Maria Bello), and his magic suddenly shifts: now everyone around him wins, which is big trouble for Bernie.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In the motel, when Shelly confronts Natalie, the camera and its operator are reflected in the upper right-hand corner of the mirror.
  • This film originally received an NC-17 rating and was re-cut to achieve an R. The details of the rating dispute are documented in the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated, which shows some of the deleted footage.
  • SPOILER: During the opening credits, when the camera pans over The Lady Luck, there is a shot of Maria Bello's face flashing over the exterior of the casino, as she eventually turns out to be his Lady Luck.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In a scene where Bernie is unlucky at the blackjack table, you see an empty table with the cigarette butts quickly accumulating in the ashtray. However, this would imply there were people at the table for a long period of time, which wouldn't have been the case if people weren't winning.
