Michael and I were able to see a movie this afternoon. We decided against Shrek as all of Atlanta would be there and chose another movie, a romantic little film (sort of) called Lucky You.
It stars Drew Barrymore and some attractive guy and it was pretty much about poker with a story behind it.
I liked the movie, I loved the fact that there was a father-son story line that was delivered nicely. I do not remember any bad words but it had me thinking about the game of poker and other card games.
I offer this to you. Do you think poker is bad? My husband plays but he plays at a restaurant that doesn't play with money but just chips and gift certificates as prizes. Gambling can be addictive just like other things. I have been to Vegas (with family) and I have played the slot machines on cruises (not the Disney Cruise as they don't have them)
Here is my view. Poker (which is just a card game) is only "bad" when it interferes with your lifestyle and/or becomes an obsession. If it takes the place of things you need to be doing, it can be bad. A lot people play for fun or as a way to relieve stress. I know many family members who play every Friday night for fun.
Watching this movie, (and I am not giving away anything), the main character played poker as a living. But I saw some qualities of this game that could be bad and or dangerous. I am not sure I have ever talked about it and wondered other peoples opinions. I know many people have different views regarding this, so please don't yell at me if you disagree with mine. I think sometimes I may not be open minded and just want to hear from other people..
