Penn directed from a screenplay outline but let the actors improvise their own lines as they played poker in a fake international tournament called the Grand Championship of Poker.

The cast is made up of a long list of stars such as Ray Romano, Jason Alexander, David Cross, Superhero Movie Writer to Make Poker Movie
