Abstract: The Cooler (2003, USA) by Wayne Kramer Main Cast: Alec Baldwin; William H. Macy; Company: Content Film The movie tells the story of Bernie Lootz, who is a ”cooler” in a casino. With his bad karma he calms the winning tables down. The casino boss, Shelly, wants to keep his valuable employee and hires the waitress Natalie to pretend to fall in love with Bernie. The “job” becomes real love and Bernie looses his bad karma: From now on every table he passes by wins. Scene: gambling mixed adults cards table games machines Transgressive 1:01:56-1:02:32: gambling Here Bernie is in the casino, just after the night Natalie told him, that she loves him. His curse of bad luck is broken and from now on every table he passes by wins. Consequently one can see in this scene a lot of happy gamblers winning and the old ladies at the slot machines even throw their won coins into the air. As there are so much happy people I can hardly imagine, that someone will call the behaviour addiction. Clip: 144
