Inspired by the book Bringing Down the House, this fact-based (let's not go all the way to "true") story introduces us to hotshot young M.I.T. student Ben Campbell (Jim Sturgess, Across the Universe). Our boy Ben's a math wizard, but he's too poor to afford tuition. Enter evil genius professor Micky Rosa (Kevin Spacey), who recruits Ben and a group of other students to become professional blackjack cheats in Las Vegas. Together, they rake in millions of dollars before the inevitable greed tears down their plans like a house of ... something flimsy and paper-like in substance. 123 minutes PG-13.
