A very good movie

A while back, Wayne Kramer made ‘Running Scared’, a movie barely seen when it was released but which eventually became a cult-classic and probably the only movie starring the recently deceased Paul Walker which actually received some decent reviews. Later on, Kramer would make the rather ambitious ‘Crossing Over’ with an impressive cast but it was eventually rather disappointing. Before al... read more
View all The Cooler reviews
The unluckiest man in Vegas - a guy whose bad luck is contagious - is used by the last of the old time mob run casinos to kill high rollers' action. That is, until he falls in love with a cocktail waitress and gets "lady luck," which throws the situation into reverse. Things turn nasty when the casino director tries to break up the romance.

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"29.1, DVD Mukava nähdä kasinoelokuva, joka on vaihteeksi jotain muutakin kuin pelkkää väkivaltaa. Sitä The Cooleristakin löytyy, mutta sopivissa määrin ja toimivana kontrastina humoristisille ja kevyemmille kohtauksille. Roolisuoritukset ovat hyviä ja tarina lämminhenkinen, mutta aina silloin tällöin elokuva irroittautuu todellisuudesta hölmöillä fantasiaelementeillä, jotka tuovat tähän ärsyttävää perhe-elokuvan tuntua. Kokonaisuus olisi toiminut paremmin, mikäli tapahtu"

35 From 3: My Favorite Films From 2003 (35 movies items)

"Covering ground that hasn't yet been covered in the myriad of other Las Vegas casino flicks that came previous to this one, The Cooler is a story that shows that no matter how good his "roll" in the game of gambling, even a sad sack loser can get lucky sometimes and win over the heart a hot babe. Starring an actor whom's body of work I really like, William H. Macy. For me, he's one of those actors that seems to make more right decisions than bad when it comes to choosing a part in a film. A"
