This movie is based on the book Bringing Down The House, about team of students from MIT university who formed a card-counting team to make money at Black Jack. The book had a lot of fictional elements to it and the movie even more so - which made it more dramatic I imagine, and more interesting to first read, then watch.

What did impress me was how smart the students are (which highlighted how very poor my own math skills are) and what a genius scheme it was.

We had dinner at Alec's favourite Vietnamese place in Chatswood - Golden Bo. I had some kind of noodle and vege dish.

Alec's sauce for his noodles.

Vermicelli noodles and spring rolls. Delish!
