Honor.  Integrity.  Principles.  Everything is Negotiable.  On April 5, 2011, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released CASINO JACK on DVD and Blu-ray.  Kevin Spacey stars in the Critically Acclaimed CASINO JACK, which is based on a true story.  CASINO JACK is available for purchase in stores and online, retailing for $22.98 (DVD) and $29.99 (Blu-ray).

SYNOPSIS

Catch Kevin Spacey in his Golden Globe-nominated performance as a megalomanical lobbyist in CASINO JACK, which arrived on Blu-ray and DVD on April 5th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  The critically acclaimed film based on a true story tells the tale of one of DC’s most lucrative lobbyists, who used his power and influence to create an extravagant lifestyle that included private jets, exotic cars, and even an offshore gambling business.

Two-time Academy Award® Winner Kevin Spacey delivers a “bravura performance” (The New Yorker) in this “uproarious, riveting and wickedly hilarious” (Elle) film inspired by a true story. Spacey stars as Jack Abramoff, the real-life Washington power player who resorted to jaw-dropping levels of fraud and corruption. High-rolling excess and outrageous escapades are all in a day’s work for Abramoff, as he goes to outrageous lengths to promote the Indian gambling industry, earning him the nickname “Casino Jack.” But when Jack and his womanizing protégé Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper) enlist a dimwitted business partner (Jon Lovitz) for an illegal scheme, they find themselves ensnared in a web of greed and murder that explodes into a worldwide scandal.

CASINO JACK is a cautionary tale that showcases the best and worst of Capitol Hill intrigue, and also stars Barry Pepper (True Grit), Kelly Preston (Old Dogs, Death Sentence), and Jon Lovitz (Saturday Night Live, The Producers).

CASINO JACK is available on Blu-ray for the suggested retail price of $29.99, and on DVD for the suggested retail price of $22.98.

MY THOUGHTS

I really enjoy watching Kevin Spacey in the different roles he performs, so I was excited to see CASINO JACK on DVD.  It was a really good movie and I was eager to share it with family and friends.  Plus, what’s even better is that CASINO JACK is based on a true story!  Kevin Spacey, Barry Pepper, Kelly Preston, and Jon Lovitz did an excellent job acting together in this film.  A big thanks goes to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for this DVD review opportunity on The Mommy-Files.

I received a copy of “CASINO JACK” on DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
