Audience Reviews for Two Dollar Bettor


A tale of warning in the over-the-top obviousness of Reefer Madness (if somewhat more low key than that) that considers a pillar of the community, family man, father to two lovely girls, respected in business, blah, blah, blah, who falls sway to that ol' demon gambling. There's a sultry lady leading our witless hero to rack and ruin, but of course, but still he should've known better. You should know better, too. This is as slow and ponderous as watching grass wither.
