Storyline Heading
The sports gambling phenom Brandon Lang, a self-assured (but washed-up) former college football player who is on the cusp of exploiting his true talents: his ability to consistently pick football winners. This uncanny knack attracts the hungry Walter into Brandon’s smalltime world. Brandon holds his own as an ingénue sports advisor, fighting for his piece of the turf against the paternal, yet ruthless, Walter.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - This is drama centered on the sports betting world is aimed at adults, particularly males. As it is about betting and not sports itself, there isn't much in the way of sports action than talk. Rene Russo fans may be disappointed with her fairly limited amount of screen time, but Matthew McConaughey and especially Al Pacino fans won't be disappointed here.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good 'Two for the Money' is not about the mechanics of this business, but about its emotions.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The movie has a lot of built-in flash and is thus mildly entertaining, though the running time grinds it down.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 151 moviegoer opinions. For a movie with this star power, these opinions are disappointing. They aren't terrible, but it's obvious about half of the moviegoers were not very impressed. With opinions this mixed it's difficult to recommend "Two For The Money" very strongly. If this were a movie without this star power these opinions would be pretty good. So, if you go in without heightened expectations then most of you will enjoy "Two For The Money." However, it's unlikely it will be a movie you will rave about to friends.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Brandon Lang (MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY) has nurtured a sports dream that's taken him from the pee-wee leagues all the way to college ball. It's the kind of vision that makes toiling away for years in a dreary, windowless cubicle of a Vegas 900-number racket almost bearable as he waits for the one acceptance letter that will change his life. Problem is, Brandon is no longer a bankable commodity as a football player. Crushing leg injuries sidelined his dreams of ever playing in any pro league. With the rejection letters piling up, his tenacity gets a shot in the arm. He has just received a letter from an unlikely scout.

For Walter Abraham (AL PACINO), kingpin of the biggest sports advisory service in the country, Brandon is far more than a washed up quarterback with a seeming knack for picking winners in every weekend's football match-ups. He is the key to selling nearly 100 percent certainty in one uncertain world: sports gambling.

In fact, Walter is so convinced of Brandon's untapped acumen that he is willing to bet his future on it. But first Walter must convince Brandon. Walter dangles a tantalizing opportunity for Brandon to declare his own paycheck, move to New York City and live a life he never imagined.
