Synopsis:

Beth Raymer (Rebecca Hall) is an intense, excited, beautiful girl with a huge heart who gives up stripping in Florida to realize her dream: to become a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas. When she doesn’t land a job, she lucks into meeting Dink (Bruce Willis), an idiosyncratic sports gambler who sees potential and ability under Beth’s bubbly exterior. Dink offers Beth a job placing wagers and working the phones, and his bet on Beth pays off -- she shows herself to be something of a gambling prodigy, and fast becomes Dink’s good-luck charm.

But something else seems to be happening between them, and it’s not so professional... Enter Tulip (Catherine Zeta-Jones), Dink’s understandably territorial ex-showgirl wife. Faced with no other choice but to fire Beth, Dink’s luck runs out when she heads to New York to work for a rival, a bookie named Rosie (Vince Vaughn). When she follows Rosie into an operation that lands her squarely on the wrong side of the law, Dink and Tulip have to rally to help Beth save herself and finally grow up.

With LAY THE FAVORITE, acclaimed director Stephen Frears nimbly displays his skill at creating a wicked weave of comedy and drama, creating a thrilling tale of gambling, romance, and improbable friendship found in the unlikeliest of places.

贝丝•雷默离开了她在佛罗里达做脱衣舞娘的工作,来到了拉斯维加斯,希望找一份女招待的工作。虽然这不是一个理想中的工作,但是贝丝自己却又是一个稀里糊涂的女孩子,也没有太多的工作可以挑选。这个时候,丁克出现了,他是一个职业赌徒,专门在各种体育比赛中赌博。他看透了贝丝的生活和现状,所以他就雇佣了这个漂亮的女人来为自己工作,在全城的各个赌场里进行投注,让他赚取一点小小的佣金。

丁克很快就发现了贝丝对数字的敏锐和天赋,并且利用她的这个特长开始在赌场里小试身手。很快,这个赌徒和这个女人结合成了珠联璧合的赚钱搭档,这点让丁克的那个漂亮的但是小气的老婆图利普大为光火。 无奈之下,丁克只好抄了贝丝的鱿鱼。贝丝走了之后,丁克的好运似乎到了头,他在赌博界一败涂地。而贝丝则来到了纽约,从事着更加违法的工作--看上去,她已经深陷其中无法自拔了……
