    I noticed on Netflix the 2004 Breaking Vegas. Is this worth getting? I don't think it streams.

    I'm not sure it's a "movie"... I thought it was a series on the History Channel or one of those. I liked it... there were a number of episodes.

    I thought it was entertaining. Different stories about gamblers from what I recall as well.

    The movie '21' was based on a book title Busting Vegas. Maybe you're thinking of that? Ben Mezhrich wrote that about the card counters from MIT. The book was a great read.

    "Breaking Vegas
    Inspired by Ben Mizrich's book detailing a scandal that shocked the "powers that be" at the biggest casinos in the nation, Breaking Vegas is a documentary that recounts how six college students attending prestigious MIT banded together for a massive cheat-fest. The intrepid troupe came up with the elaborate scheme themselves, using their collective genius to guzzle millions of dollars from Las Vegas gaming establishments.
    Cast: Edward F. Villaume, Michael Bou, Gary Lucy, more..."

    So a documentary, but with a cast.

    Takes place in a casino so always a good pre-vegas movie.
