Also starring Renee Russo and Jeremy Piven (TV's Entourage), Two For The Money sizzles with intense, non-stop thrills!

    The acting is great.

    It happens once, and then we never hear of it again, as if they (the movie makers) just wanted to show us this side of the issue.

    Format: DVD
    TWO FOR THE MONEY takes on the topic of Sports Gambling and makes a serious attempt to turn it into a movie. The story is apparently based on a true one (as per the opening screen statement) but it is from the pen of Dan Gilroy that the well-drawn characters are realized. DJ Caruso (Smallville, The Salton Sea, The Shield) knows his way around matters such as these and his pacing is fine, allowing for the isolated 'arias' in the film to work well. The problem, for this viewer, is the topic: how interesting can bilking chronic gamblers over football game wagers possibly be?

    The story is related by Brandon Long (Matthew McConaughey) who begins life as a sports hero and just at the moment when he is ready to break in to the Pro Football domain, he fractures his leg in a winning touchdown. Six years later, and still dreaming of making it as a player of football, finds him in the numbers game with a talent for picking winning teams and calling 900 numbers to urge gullible people t place bets according to his predictions. Enter Alter Abrams (Al Pacino), a recovering Gambler who is making it big in the sports gambling arena. He coerces Brandon to join him in New York, wines him, dines him with the aid of his smart and beautiful wife Toni (Rene Russo), and in no time Brandon Long takes on the persona of John Anthony and makes it big as a TV personality who successfully bilks willing gambling people out of their money. Long as Anthony takes on a life of his own and it is the conflagration between the creator Abrams and the protégé Anthony that fleshes out the film.

    Interesting to a point, the story loses steam in the last half and we soon lose interest in the outcome or the characters. And not that that is the fault of the actors!

    The general premise, man gets sucked into the world of sports gambling and then tries to find a way out of it. Thats the whole story in a nutshell.

    Really, the story is nothing new. Actually quite formulatic. I can't really say that there is anything new. But the thing about this movie is the acting.

    The acting is great. Matthew M. is suprisingly very good. I don't think he is a bad actor, but I don't see him as a breakout actor for his acting abilities. He is quite good in this movie though as the arrogant sports-to-go-to man for gambling tips. Jeremy Piven, though in a small role, is very similar to his character on Entourage, but you know, he's great as that character as he is in this one. Al Pacino is always good. Acutally, he's great in this movie. The only problem is that his character is very conventional Pacino. Always yelling, yelling, yelling, getting mad, being scary. But, Pacino is good at that. Though Pacino is presenting nothing new here, he is very good at presenting nothing new. My favorite though is Rene Russo. She really suprised me with her performance. Her struggles to keep her husband (Pacino) in check and keeping (McC) out of the business is well covered by her acting abilities. Though all three previous actors are great, I think Russo steals the movie.

    The great thing about this movie was the ending. The resolution is very powerful and is very well done.

    3 Things why is movie isn't great:

    1. Its a tad recycled

    2. McC transition from loser to big man is kind of abrupt

    3. The movie seemed lengthy & should've had some cuts

    But yeah, movie is pretty. Don't have the heart to give it a three, but not quite a 4. 3 1/2 out of 5.

    Format: DVD
    The fiercely competitive and beneficial world of sports betting gets the Hollywood treatment in this lukewarm drama, boasted by the performances of its talented cast. Al Pacino is fine as the head of a sports betting company that even has its own t.v. show to boost "sales." Matthew McConaughey plays well against Pacino as Brandon Lang, a former football sensation sidelined by a knee injury who has the "gift" to pick winners. Pacino picks him to join his team and it isn't long before Brandon (now known as John Anthony) becomes his golden boy and a surrogate son to boot. That's the basic plot and it just isn't charismatic enough to keep you interested, if it weren't for the top notch cast. Rene Russo offers strong support as Pacino's wife, a former addict who is trying to keep Pacino away from his addiction---gambling. Jeremy Piven is devilishly effective as Jerry, Lang's competitor and former golden boy who gets displaced. The movie falls apart midway and never really recaptured my interest, but I did appreciate the thespian efforts.

    Every time Al Pacino is on screen he teaches something about life.

    He creates art in any situation. His characters are larger than life so that we can see what we would otherwise miss.

    The insights in this film are amazing:

    Life presents chances to us; opportunities, gambles, risks, paths taken, whatever we want to call them. We sequence them into a fabric which becomes our lives; our histories. We want to be more than we are, and we can feel alive when we make choices. We share these with those around us, and when we are self-centered we sometimes do our greatest work, but we also risk our relationships and our future when we ignore our connectedness to others.

    The win-win is when we lift up all around us, and they in turn lift us. The win-lose is when we "get ours" at the expense of others. The lose-lose is when we drag everyone down with us.

    See the beauty of Al Pacino's gifts as an actor and teacher in this film. He lifts every actor in this film, and will raise your level of understanding of the human experience, and our perceptions of our short time here.
