Also, does Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels count? The whole premise was based on losing money from a card game...

I think this is one of those things where knowing the subject can shift your views. Rounders was a fun movie, but slightly less realistic than Iron Man. 21 was just a mediocre movie.

Knowing both film and the world of gambling, I can say with authority that the best gambling film is Altman's California Split.
