Rounders (1998)

 Rated R for our X-rated mouths.

The 11th Scoring At The Movies episode lines up our checks and doesn’t splash the pot as we yak about the Damon/Norton poker picture. Those two are terrific together, but John Malkovich’s  infamous take on how a Russian mobster acts and talks robs the flick away from everyone else. His goofy work also allowed us to do a series of bad impressions of that wacky Malk accent. But there’s a lot more than that in this ep, so settle in for a long session. Chris is a bonafide card sharp, so he’s in his element with this movie. Deal!
