    Synopsis


    Lay the Favorite
    Director Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen) reunites with screenwriter D.V. DeVincentis to tell the seriocomic story of a kindhearted Florida stripper who becomes a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, but finds her luck running out after befriending a professional sports gambler with a jealous wife. Convinced that there's more to life than peeling off skimpy outfits for leering bar patrons, exotic dancer Beth Raymer (Rebecca Hall) opts to try her luck as a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, and quickly makes the acquaintance of Dink (Bruce Willis) -- a man with a talent for making quick cash on winning sports teams. When Dink hires Beth to place wagers at multiple casinos, they quickly discover she's got a knack for numbers, and form a lucrative partnership. But all good things must come to an end, and when Dink's jealous wife Tulip (Catherine Zeta-Jones) catches wind of the relationship she insists that her husband fire his new good-luck charm immediately. Dejected, Beth takes flight to New York, where her winning streak comes to a sudden end after she goes to work for a shady bookie. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Rebecca Hall does an excellent job as a naive bookie in Lay. The other actors, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Vince Vaughn are great in their supporting roles, but.... This movie was poorly written: the jokes fall flat, the script doesn't develop enough so that the audience can care about the characters, the gambling is explained only enough so that gamblers can understand what the actors are doing and there is very little plot action that's not inside an office looking at TV screens with sports games on them.
