Two for the Money

 

USA 2005, 122 minutes
Dir. D. J. Caruso
Rating: [M]
Genres: Suspense/Crime, Drama

Topics: Sport.

 

Aroview: Set in the world of gridiron betting, this steamy male melodrama has an injured quarterback (McConaughey) tempted into the field of 'sports advisories' (ie. phone tips) by a charismatic and wealthy New Yorker (Al Pacino) with plenty of hidden agendas up his sleeve.

Although successful at first, their mentor-protege partnership eventually disintegrates into a welter of lost bets, empty champagne bottles and recriminations. Powered chiefly by Pacino's usual screen antics - and here he is even more entertainingly verbose than ever - this has some trouble finding focus amid numerous competing subplots. Even so, a worthy stab at an unusual subject.
