Critic Reviews for Let It Ride

All Critics (11)

Tilly's ample bosom, heaving up and down while cheering for various races, seems to garner more screentime than most other supporting players.

Let It Ride limps to its conclusion, though it doesn't go down without a fight. Pytka struggles to keep the bottle rocket vibe of the movie engaged to the bitter end.

Low-key and forgettable...

quirky but fun comedy. Dreyfuss is charming as the compulsive gambler.

Only in the movies can you come across selfish bastards that you actually like. Of course it helps when your bastard is played by the likes of Richard Dreyfuss.
