All In ★ 2006 (R)

Alice “Ace” Anderson (Swain) has been raised by her poker-playing father (Madsen) in the world of backstreet gambling. With mounting debts from med school, Ace decides to recruit some fellow students to take on the best players and win at the World Series of Poker. Lame effort with some confusing and unnecessary subplots. ?m/C DVD .
