The celebrating kept going long after the premiere of 21 in NYC last night.

As weird as it sounds, some of my fondest memories of my high school senior year were spent playing cards. and towards the end of the year, I think we spent the greater parts of our class time playing cards (yes, our teachers knew, and sometimes even played with us since it was so close to graduation).

But it wasn't just about the game, it was such a bonding activity.

I ended up making friends outside my normal circle of friends in those final weeks of school, all over a silly deck of cards.

I guess in a weird way, it's something everyone could relate to and put us all on even playing ground.

Kate Bosworth (in Alessandro Dellaqua) arrives at the Sho West awards ceremony held at the Paris Las Vegas on Thursday.

Her husband is also foreign born but has achieved A+ list in his own country and probably A- list over here.

Needless to say, I've always had a slight obsession with card games.

And that's probably part of why I was so intrigued by last spring's hit movie 21 based on the inspired-by-true-events book, Bringing Down the House, about a group of MIT students who earned big bucks counting cards in Vegas.

Sure, Jim Sturgess made for great eye candy, Aaron Yoo's wacky ways provided the chuckles, and it was cool to see Kate Bosworth playing a brainiac, but most of all, there was just something so relateable about this random group of students who came together over card games (granted, I'm too much of a wimp to even bet a penny on anything! And now the film is available on DVD..some cool bonus features. The one called "21: The Advantage Player," where the cast reveals the techniques behind counting cards. Also on the DVD are two other videos, "Basic Strategy: A Complete Film Journal," which goes behind the scenes of the making of the film and "Money Plays: A Tour of the Good Life," which shows the high roller lifestyle the college kids lived once they hit Vegas. so trust me, it's totally worth betting on this DVD.

Sounds so easy, but every time I tried to follow, I was way off! (No wonder a cashier at Barnes & Noble once guessed I wasn't a math major the way I oh-so-slowly made change.
