Fun and adorable flick!

What a fun flick! In Lay the Favorite, Rebecca Hall shows off her acting chops by playing a character she never usually plays. From England, Rebecca usually plays a strong, self-sufficient woman, and in this comedy, she plays a gum-chewing, low-class bimbo from Florida who falls for a married gambler. She's never been prettier, and in my opinion, she's never been more likable.

With her curls bouncing as much as her personality, Rebecca finds herself lap-dancing in Las Vegas with dreams no higher than becoming a cocktail waitress. She meets for master gambler Bruce Willis and goes to work for him in his bookie joint. While she develops feelings for him, he's merely enamored with her work talents-after all, he is married to the beautiful and jealous Catherine Zeta-Jones!

Depending on how well you know your date-and whether or not he's married-this would be an adorable film to rent for a cute date night. It's funny, sassy, interesting, and Rebecca does a great job. I liked her so much in Lay the Favorite that I didn't realize it was the same actress I had seen in other, completely different roles! She and Bruce have a darling rapport together, and you'll find yourself rooting for them despite your better judgment.

Don't toss your 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' tapes yet

Even Bruce Willis couldn't save this masterpiece. The first half was pretty bad, but then something happened: it got worse. It was like a soft core 'Showgirls' but without the character development, tension, drama and humor. I was going to give it a 1, but I kept thinking about Laura Prepon sunning herself and I gave it a 2. Call me generous.

Wonderful film great casting and directing

This is a wonderful film, full of exuberance and with the kind of fast pace that is seldom seen outside of an Elroy Leonard movie. Rebecca Hall, who was so outstanding in Vicky Cristina Barcelona and in Parade's End is a Brit who is exceptionally versatile. She plays Beth in this film, based on the real Beth's memoir, and she played every minute perfectly. Willis was terrific and so were Zeta Jones and Joshua Jackson. Vince Vaughan plays a bookie who prefigures Donald Trump's conman patter.

This film is not to be missed.

I am surprised so many disliked the film. I suspect that some have an antipathy to gambling per se.
