When word first got out that a poker-themed movie featuring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake was in the works, poker fans were excited. Sadly, when Runner Runner was finally released in theatres – on this day in 2013 – it failed to deliver.

And while poker fans were very critical of the movie, the experts over at Rotten Tomatoes were even more brutal. The film received a 8% rating on the Tomatometer – ouch!
