I think we watched different trailers maybe ? This looks decidedly not fun.

Do you recall the "true story" ?

Yeah but it was a little different. There was a recumbent bike involved.

Movie looks interesting to me.

The trailer seems in no way, shape, or form similar to that story. I know that liberties are often taken when true stories come to film, and trailers can be misleading, but nothing about that seems to fit.

Van Patten claims it's about him:

"Recently, I wrote a film. I produced and starred in it. The film entitled Walk To Vegas is based on my true story, the rise and fall of my big poker game and the crazy bets we would make," noted Van Patten. "The film, which is a comedy, is centered around a bet of me walking from L.A. to Las Vegas in seven days. Overall, I'm very proud of the film, and we will be taking it to film festivals in the upcoming months, looking for the right distribution."

Funny, anyone ever hear about the Van Patten bet before as a real thing ? When did he do it ?

Re: New Gambling (Poker ?) Movie from Vince Van Patten looks Legit

So did Van Patten really walk to Vegas or not?

270 miles/7 days = 38 miles a day for a million dollars. I'm a 60 year old fat guy and would take that prop bet. Get rich or die trying.

Don't think I would go cross country. Stick to the asphalt, easier going, and travel at night.

Sleep /eat/drink/bang hookers/do coke during the hottest part of the day in my air conditioned support RV.

I don't either. No idea who "Dr. Lockinstin" is, or what you're in.

I sent a couple of tweets at Vince asking about Vegas showings and got zero response. I suspect his social media skills are about zero.

She has legit poker credentials and was a way bigger star than any Van Patten.
