Quick Review: The Poker Club (2008)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0488612/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
"Four friends discover and accidentally kill a burglar -- who may not be alone -- in the kitchen during their weekly poker night."
 
Yay, this is another one of those "Oh shit, someone died accidentally, but instead of calling the Cops, we should dump the body somewhere and pretend it never happened" flicks! This plot setup is just about as tired as the "A couple/group of friends head into the woods for a weekend vacation and encounter mongoloid locals/unspeakable evil/unspeakable mongoloid evil" bit. I can deal with either of those plot lines, if the movie is done well, which this one just isn't.
I'm pretty sure the script is printed on those cards.
Predictable, bland, and filled with wild twists that no one cares about, The Poker Club is Sci-Fi Channel material at best.

Wipe her chin all you want, it won't make her forget this movie.
Bad movie, beautiful girls.
