Scarcely anyone tries to make heart felt love stories featuring life?s losers anymore, which makes the achievement of The Cooler all the more appealing. This story about characters at the bottom of the Las Vegas food chain is sexy, funny and sweet while at the same time filled with the energy, flash and risk associated with the gambling capital. There are sterling performances by William H. Macy and Maria Bello as the long-shot lovers and Alec Baldwin (nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar) as the temperamental casino boss.
The Cooler? hits the jackpot. - Peter Travers, Rolling Stones
