Pull up a chair, have a seat at the table. This a Highly Suspect card game and here…the stakes are high! Seated across from you are Brian, Chris, Ashley, and J.C., but the one holding all the cards is The Gambler himself: Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg plays a college professor with an obsession for risking it all. He gets in way over his head and owes a lot of money to dangerous people. The shit of it is…he doesn’t seem to care?!

The Unusual Suspects are here to shuffle up their thoughts on the movie and let you know the deal. Whether you end up liking The Gambler or not, we’d wager you’ll still enjoy this review.

[Insert final gambling pun]
