This review may contain spoilers.

Super slick, funny and entertaining as hell. Matt Damon and Edward Norton have dynamite chemistry and they’re doing some of their best work here, particularly Norton, although, I don’t understand why he just disappears in the last half hour. I would love to see a sequel to this some day to see if the two ever reunited. Damn, I really need to learn poker soon. Also, am I the only person who finds John Malkovich extremely annoying, especially with that fake Russian accent?
