Director Robert Luketic adapts Ben Mezrich's best-seller 'Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions' to tell the true-life tale of half a dozen underdog coeds who managed to beat the system at its own game through sheer cunning and frightening intelligence. Kevin Spacey co-stars as the eccentric maths professor who gathers his best and brightest to scam the casinos, and Laurence Fishburne is the hard-nosed security chief determined to figure out their angle. The film may play fast and loose with the facts, but it's entertaining none-the-less.
