The Cooler

William H. Macy (Fargo) stars in this quirky little indie comedy/drama about a guy so fantastically unlucky that he's employed by a Las Vegas casino to cool down the winning streaks of hot players. His luck changes one day, however, when he falls in love with a cute young waitress (Coyote Ugly's Maria Bello). Macy and Bello are great together, but the surprise show-stealer here is Alec Baldwin as an old-school mobster trying to run Vegas his own seedy way. The script isn't always smooth, but the film creates an appealing little world all its own. 101 minutes
