Gambling film of the year. (by benighted2005)
Netflix said I will give this a full score. Netflix was right. This is a film about a man who has no job and no prospects. He thinks he is a good gambler but he is not good at all. A friend/colleague is going to prison. The guy leaves the protagonist a bag and says in clear terms, don't open it. I'll take it back when I get out and give you $10k. Our protagonist agrees. But he can't help him self.What follows is a funny, entertaining and hilarious ride. I loved this. This is like an Indie Swingers. This is Jake Johnson's best film since drinking buddies which I really liked. <more>
Raw and edgy. Fans of Rounders + Swingers + Owning Mahowny may appreciate it. Whereas Louis Ck fans might wanna try it too. Why am I writing this review? The rating on IMDb is ridiculous and discouraging
Leaves you with a smile, Im an amature in terms of actor and crew recognition but i loved this movie. Thought the acting and story was solid. Jake johnson was great and Aislinn Derbez mirrored him as the female lead. Loved the growth and struggle of brothers Joe Truglio and jake johnson. If youre looking for an interesting movie then this is a must watch.
Win It All (by Argemaluco)
Drinking Buddies, the first collaboration between director Joe Swanberg and actor Jake Johnson, was one of my favorite films from 2013. In 2015, they worked together again in Digging for Fire, but in that case, the film was boring and disappointing. And now, in 2017, Swanberg and Johnson worked together once more in Win It All, quite an interesting film which evokes honest emotions with a deceptively simple screenplay and excellent performances. Johnson is best known for his work in the sitcom New Girl one of my favorite series, by the way , but he has gradually become a brilliant actor, <more>
maybe limited to the particular "likable loser" niche, but with a big talent to capture the humanity hidden behind the dysfunctions of his characters. In the case of Win It All, said dysfunction is the gambling addiction in every possible way. Then, the unexpected visit of an old "partner" presents a unique opportunity for Johnson's character, and the rest of the movie portrays his sincere struggle to overcome his vice and create a new life, while making catastrophic decisions which couldn't only ruin his efforts, but also cost his life. As I previously said, a simple premise, but capable of taking us all over the emotional spectrum in a matter of seconds, without losing the rhythm of the tale and without betraying the nature of the characters. And besides, we also have perfect performances from Joe LoTruglio best known for his work in Brooklyn Nine Nine, another one of my favorite sitcoms , Keegan Michael-Key, Aislinn Derbez, Nicky Excitement and José Antonio García in supporting roles. On the negative side, I found the ending of Win It All too abrupt, while trying to distract us from the main drama; I don't want to reveal too much, so I will leave that complaint ambiguous. Nevertheless, Win It All deserves a recommendation as a solid combination of comedy and drama in which things are exactly like they seem... and they are still able to keep us interested. In summary, I'm definitely interested in watching more collaborations between Swanberg and Johnson. Maybe a cinematographic "crossover" of Drinking Buddies and New Girl?
Overall, it is such a nice movie to watch, totally recommended and pretty good... But I felt like some emotions that were expressed by Eddie Jake Johnson , the main character, were a little fake and not original or life-like.And the main idea or story that the movie made was not clear until the very end where he "Won It All". can be a good or a bad thing But overall a must watch.
"Win It All" gives a reason to keep betting on Swanberg (by Movie_Muse_Reviews)
Chicago-centric writer/director Joe Swanberg has teamed up yet again with Netflix and his favorite everyman actor, Jake Johnson, for another straight-shooting comedic drama in "Win It All." Although Swanberg bets once more on his honest-to-goodness, real people living everyday life approach to storytelling, this film has a much stronger narrative focus, marking another step forward for the modern indie auteur.In these last couple Netflix collaborations, starting with the limited anthology series "Easy," Swanberg has improved upon his 2013 breakthrough "Drinking <more>
Buddies" by finding ways to up the stakes while staying true to the stories he wants to tell. Some audiences will crave more intriguing premises and manufactured melodrama and never quite get on board with him, but "Win It All" shows a willingness to compromise, if that's a fair way to put it.Johnson's Eddie is in many respects an ordinary, struggling blue- collar Chicagoan without a job trying to find his way, but the dimension of his gambling addiction puts a fat caveat on his "everyday" dealings. When a buddy going off to prison hands him a duffel bag with the promise that if Eddie simply returns it untouched when he gets back, he'll make $10,000, we're already aware of his risk-inclined personality and know this will not go well. Whereas Hollywood would take this plot and turn it into a heist film or crime drama, Swanberg is just interested in Eddie's roller coaster, and we're instantly curious as to which end Eddie will come out when the credits roll.It's not quite accurate to call "Win It All" a portrait of gambling addiction; the film is all about Eddie, but there's still a degree of distance between him and us – the objective is sympathy rather than empathy. Per Swanberg's M.O., the real interest is in Eddie's responses and choices, especially as it relates to the relationships in his life. His desire to change leads him to improve his relationship with his brother Joe Lo Truglio , who wants nothing but to get Eddie on his feet, and lands him a new romantic opportunity in Eva Aislinn Derbez from "Easy" episode "Controlada" .Eddie's ups and downs give a real pulse to this film that makes it a much more compelling watch than the casual attitude and mild conflict of "Drinking Buddies." Swanberg captures his characters in such an earnest light, like no one else telling stories today, but that down-to-earth tone can result in dull plots. "Win It All" does a lot to mitigate that problem. The intensity still grades out at mild, but there's a distinct hook.Given the moral question hanging above the entire movie, Swanberg finds a really thoughtful and interesting way of ending the film that reminds us that Eddie's journey is about a lot more than whether the film ends with him in the red or the black. It may come off a bit anti- climactic, but if you know Swanberg, you can't watch this film expecting anything different. "Win It All" suggests there's at least reason to keep betting on him going forward.~Steven CThanks for reading! Visit Movie Muse Reviews for more
