You like to win, right?

From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.

Review Text

Sandler inhabits this character fully and without vanity, working Howard's ready smile and desperate eyes and needling, never-ending sales pitch into a devastating portrait of a lesser shark, the kind who's always late for the kill.

Review Text

Sandler is so good, so committed and so watchable that, despite everything - Howard's irrationality, a rogue's gallery of unpleasant characters, the foreboding of a bad, bad end - you can't take your eyes off the screen, which Sandler seldom vacates.

Sandler proves he can act with the best of them, meeting every challenge the incendiary Safde brothers throw at him to give the audience the ride of its life.
