Lucky You

Lucky You ★★ 2007 (PG-13)

Huck Cheever (Bana) is a talented poker player who makes his living fleecing tourists in Las Vegas but dreams of making it big in the World Championship (Series) of Pok er. Unfortunately, his emotions usually get in the way, especially when it comes to dealing with his deadbeat father, L.C. (Du vall), who becomes his poker arch-nemesis. On his way to a showdown with Dad, Huck alternately romances and rips off struggling lounge singer Billie (Barry more). Hansen obviously loves his charac ters, poker, and the eccentrics that make up Las Vegas's underbelly, but it's not enough to help this movie's desperate identity crisis. Had it not sat on the shelf through the boom of the poker craze this would have been a better-than-standard poker movie; instead, it's a weak romantic drama with a cast and director who should have created something much better 123m/C DVD . US Eric Bana, Robert Duvall, Drew Barrymore, Debra Messing, Horatio Sanz, Jean Smart, Charles Martin Smith, Robert Downey Jr. Kelvin Han Yee, Evan Jones, Michael Shannon; D: Curtis Hanson; W: Curtis Hanson, Eric Roth; C: Peter Deming; M: Christopher Young.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
