Inspired by true events, very loosely it would seem: this mildly diverting if clichéd and rather flashy film, depicting the exploits of a group of talented maths students from MIT, who travel to Las Vegas each weekend to count cards, is fatally hampered by a number of sudden and illogical character developments.
