Howard Ratner (Sandler) is a jeweller and compulsive gambler who finds himself pursued by collection men. A surging, sometimes very funny 80s-infused thriller; Sandler is sensational as the disreputable Howard and the film captures the anxiety and pace of the big city. Stressful but engrossing.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
