Don't expect an Oscar winner here, but the movie is still nicely made. The plot is pretty good and well balanced. It's a good movie to watch one time only but its worth watching

Do not listen or believe what the critics are saying. I was shocked to see so many negative reviews before coming to see this movie, and you know what, it was a great flick to watch on a Saturday afternoon. You have a man who needs to make money to make tuition for his college, and he will do what it takes to make it happen. He will meet up with a man who can make his dreams come true, but at the same time can destroy them as well. There will be twists and turns everywhere you go, and the ending was pretty good as well. Go see it, it is worth the price of admission. This will not win any awards, but I really liked it. GO SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!

I would definitely recommend this movie for it's entertainment value and star power alone. Unusual storyline and locale made it an interesting movie for me. Justin and Ben both did a fine job.

To use a sporting (soccer) analogy, this was like a friendly game. Everyone turned up and did what they are supposed to but there was no commitment to it. Made for a tedious and dull movie.

Boring, stupid, absurd plot, terrible acting. This dreadful film sucked the charm out of the normally charismatic Justine Timberlake and Ben Affleck, leaving them to flounder through a nonsensical screenplay. Other than blackmail, I cannot imagine what convinced them to act in this film. Not that they both haven't been in some terrible films, but this one makes "Friends with Benefits" look like "Citizen Kane". I can usually find at least one redeeming feature in a movie that keeps me minimally interested, but Runner Runner lacked even that. I stayed through to the end only because I had been bored into a mindless torpor leaving me unable to muster the energy to rise from my seat and exit the theater. Unless you enjoy watching people sweating through insipid scene after insipid scene, do not see "Runner Runner".
