Aside from some brief instances where the picture exhibited some compression-related artifacts, the picture quality was acceptable. Everything is very vibrant, which matches the showiness of Las Vegas and its casinos, making for a pleasing (and TV-friendly) image.
The sound was actually very good, which was surprising given the type of movie this was. Usually, not much effort is put into such productions, but there were many times when the surrounds provided a welcome ambience of the Las Vegas casinos and other settings. In the very beginning of the movie, I had some trouble making out some dialogue, but that was brief and didn't play a major factor. The soundtrack was pretty good, featuring songs from Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan.
I like to see the theatrical trailer included with movies, so I'm disappointed that they omitted one on this DVD. The deleted scenes don't add much to the experience, but you do get to see Debra Messing in a mermaid costume. The two extras features are nearly identical in their intent to make the viewer more fully appreciate the realism that the filmmakers wanted to bring to the movie by involving real professional poker players. This was effective to the point that it made the movie seem more legitimate, but since I'm not a big fan of poker, it doesn't do much for me. At least we were saved from seeing a blooper reel!
Don't just take our word for it, check out these resources for more reviews of the movie and of the DVD.
