The trouble with movies about American sports is - American sports. The trouble with movies about gambling is - gambling. Both involve strange indecipherable codes about odds, moves, plays.
Combine American sports and gambling and, well, you can imagine the trouble for the layman who knows little or nothing about either. The only easy thing to understand is there are winners and losers. Riding a wave of winning, losing, winning, talented American college football quarterback Brandon Lang (Matthew McConaughey) finds his playing career prematurely ended courtesy of an horrific leg injury.
