21 wins big at the box office!

Kate Bosworth and Jim Sturgess in 21

I finally saw the new movie 21, starring Jim Sturgess and Kate Bosworth, this weekend. The film is about a group of "mathletes" from M.I.T who start counting cards and figure out a way to beat the banks in Vegas.

While at times it's hard to take the film seriously because the plot seems too good to ever be true, I couldn't help but think back to my own high school "mathlete" days. Yes, I was on the math team — and a very good team at that. I don't think any of us ever hatched plots to take over Las Vegas casinos, but 21 almost makes me wish we had!

Come to think of it, I've never been that great at card games. Five-card stud poker has never made sense to me, mostly because I can never keep straight which hands are the best: does the full house win, or is it the royal flush? And then there's the whole "poker face" problem. If I picked up a good card, I'd definitely start giggling or smiling or do something to give it away. In all, I'm just not cut out for the game.

Have you seen the movie 21? What do you think?
