Turning off the highway, Riverboat heads to the local muni course to find Augie and convinces him to abandon his dreams of qualifying for the PGA Tour, and come play for him in high-stake gambling matches. Augie’s longtime girlfriend, Natalie, sassy, smart and take-no-prisoners is angered beyond tolerance as she watches Augie give up his dreams and compromise his integrity. Augie continues to win high stakes matches all across the state until they’re finally run out of Texas.

This movie will not win any awards but I really enjoyed this and it is the type of movie you can watch a few times.
“You win your dead, you lose your dead. How’s it feel to be caught in the squeeze?” Augie (Sumpter) is a local kid who has a passion and talent for golf. After winning a local tournament he is approached by a man named Riverboat (McDonald) with a life changing offer. What starts off as a fun and easy way to make money changes when he becomes involved in a bet where there is no way out. This is a movie that I thought could go either way, really good or slow and boring. Luckily it was the former. I really enjoyed this and have to say that the golfing was incredible. The actors, for the most part, did all the golfing themselves which really helped the believe- ability of what was happening. The movie really hugged the line of a gambling movie that has been done over and over and trying to remain new and fresh, for the most part it pulled it off. This movie will not win any awards but I really enjoyed this and it is the type of movie you can watch a few times. Overall, entertaining and enjoyable with enough new ideas to make it seem fresh. I give this a high B.
The color of money.
was a nice film. The Hustler was even better which makes you wonder.. What are the chances the writer/director of this film never saw either?? I mean honestly, i would have some difficulty putting my name under a story like that and i do wonder how this guy did. Now as for the rest..lets just say the guy is no Scorsese and mcDonald ain’t no Paul Newman either…
