The Cooler

Wayne Kramer 2003

I liked the first forty minutes or so, and then it sort of dragged on a bit, and got too predictable. Maybe that’s part of the charm of a Las Vegas story. William H. Macy plays a “cooler” – a guy with chronic bad luck employed by the manager of the casino (a very good Alec Baldwin) to cool tables when they get too hot. Certain things were overdone: like all the little indications of the cooler’s luck changing (i.e. there’s no cream in the tin for his coffee, there is cream in the tin, there’s not cream in the tin, who cares?). And I’m so sick of this plot line that I’m going to spoil it: she’s a set up, they pay her to be with him, but she Really Does Love him now. Poo.
