Looking for the name of a recently released movie. It has something to do with a man who was kind of cheated out of all his money in a poker game who then follows the men who took his money to the next town. It is somewhat of a comedy and if I recall correctly, it may be somewhat of a family film. I believe the man rides a horse. Thank you to anyone who can provide the title for me.

Could it be The Ballad of Buster Scrubbs?

Thanks for responding but no, the Scrubbs  movie is made up of 6 little stories from what I read on iMDB and it's review there makes no mention of a man being cheated during a poker game and then him following those who cheated him to the next town - I read that in the review of the movie on iMDB.  I do already have the movie downloaded onto my system along with literally thousands of others and just cannot find it as I don't know its title. The movie is a 2018 movie.

Scrubbs has 6 short stories and the first story is exactly as you describe. He rides in on a horse, gets swindled out of a poker game etc. Its even made in 2018. I’ve watched it and sheez it so sounds like this movie.
Good luck with your search. :)

THANK YOU  I will definitely check that movie out then and let you know. It's unusual that I would d/l a movie that consisted of several short stories as I generally do not care for that format but I do like westerns and may have missed the fact of several stories.  :)

Please accept my apology and I will give you no excuse for not adding a reply sooner than this.  I am going to agree with your assumption that "The Battle of Buster Scruggs -2018" is the film I was searching for even though it doesn't state 'Family' under Genre.  Thanks ever so much for continuing to search and checking back to post  :)

Don't know why it's not showing here but I also received a response from PeterD.  It was as follows...

"""If by any chance it was an online poker game, maybe RUNNER, RUNNER (2013)?? -- but he followed the guy to Costa Rica, not the next town:"""

Thanx for responding PeterD but the movie title I'm looking for is a new movie (2018) and was just out a couple months or so ago.  It was classified as a Western / comedy / family.and all I recall about it's description is the man was in a poker game, the others cheated him of his money, he followed them, riding on his horse, to the next town.  I guess I will never find out the title until I've watched a couple thousand movies that are on my system. It's very disheartening.

To get reheartened again, just learn how to use the advanced search. With this request, you are down to 58 titles, and maybe you can fine tune it further.

Thanks ever so much, Vincent.  I went through that list quickly, though reading each one, and found nothing that seemed similar to the description I had of the movie.  I will be double checking through the titles again to see which ones I already have downloaded because I know that I already did d/l  the movie.I'm searching for.  Thank you again for the list.

You are most welcome.
We are always dependent on the way data was qualified and entered in the database. Maybe your film was not tagged as "Western" AND "Comedy", maybe it was actually released in 2017... So I would advise to adjust some parameters or fine tune them. E.g. any actor/actress name?
