Four college students visiting Reno witness a failed casino robbery. As they leave, a cop tells them that there is no way to rob a casino. One of the students decides to prove the cop wrong as a goof, planning to return the money in the end. But another student, a war veteran with a head injury, has other ideas about what to do with the cash. Featuring a star-studded cast including Guy Madison (Till the End of Time), Kim Novak (Vertigo), Brian Keith (The Parent Trap) and William Conrad (TV's Jake and the Fatman), 5 AGAINST THE HOUSE is a compelling crime drama about people who are too smart for their own good.
