An average kind of guy who has a slight problem with gambling goes to the track, and mystically, it seems as though he can't lose, no matter how he bets; and he has an incredible day.Written by
The real race track used for filming, Hialeah Park, is one of the oldest existing race tracks in the state of Florida. It once was known as "The Worlds Most Beautiful Horse Racing Park." It was registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1979. Every year the most important race it hosted was 'The Flamingo Stakes' an important stepping stone to qualifying for the Kentucky Derby. As of late 2001 the track is not hosting any further Thoroughbred Horse races. The filly Cheeky Miss is the last thoroughbred horse to win a race at Hialeah Park, running on May 22, 2001. See more »

This is one of the all time most underrated films....
This is one of the all time most underrated films. It is a little film , but rarely do you see so many wonderfully funny characters in a comedy. Along with "Breaking Away", and "Harold and Maude" it falls in a special category of films I like to watch when I'm feeling life sucks. Richard Dreyfus and Teri Garr give their best performances; and the supporting cast, especially Robbie Coltrane, is terrific. Don't miss this little gem.
