The basic premise sees Rebecca Hall as a lap dancer, who relocates to Las Vegas. There, she lands a job working for a professional gambler, played by Bruce Willis. Catherine Zeta Jones and Joshua Jackson aren’t far behind, and Lay The Favourite then gets down to the job of finding something compelling for everyone to do. Sadly, that’s where it fumbles things a little, as the characters and setting are far more interesting than the narrative itself. It makes it a slightly erratic, still entertaining movie, with Hall and Willis in particular on good form. You get a fair few giggles for your money, too.
There’s nothing of particular note about the disc release itself, save for the breezy main feature. But that alone is enough to warrant a spin. What's more, Lay The Favourite is a film that’s set to work just a little better in a more welcoming home environment, than on the big screen. --Jon Foster
