Silly submitted by andreahubert on June 29, 2012, 10:43pm This movie is a bet between men essentially destroying one man's life while enriching another's. Kind of cruelly not so funny.

Missing the point submitted by kjmclark on August 7, 2013, 1:33pm The previous review misses the final point of the movie. Yes, the wealthy company head partners do make a bet and destroy one man's life while making the other a partner. However, in the end, the two young people figure out what happened, and work together to get their comeuppance on the two who started the whole thing. So the two who were manipulated turn the tables on the two original schemers.
