SOME RESTRAINT, PLEASE! Kevin Spacey plays Jack Abramoff in Casino Jack

Details Release Date: Dec 17, 2010; Rated: R; Length: 108 minutes; Genre: Comedy; With: Jon Lovitz, Barry Pepper and Kevin Spacey

In a swell match of actor and character, Kevin Spacey bites into the role of real-life ex-lobbyist and convicted felon Jack Abramoff in Casino Jack. This hyperactive dramatization (by the late director George Hickenlooper) of how Abramoff and his cronies played crooked money and power games for so long in Washington, D.C., is tonally scattershot and more than a little heavy-footed. But then, so were the real cons from which Abramoff profited while the flimflam worked. C+
