D.J. Caruso's Two for the Money stars Matthew McConaughey as Brandon Lang, a former college quarterback whose life plans changed when he suffered a career-ending injury. Brandon turns out to have remarkable skill at picking winning football bets. Eventually, he comes to the attention of Walter Abrams (Al Pacino), a very successful business tycoon who runs a giant gambling operation. Walter brings Brandon to New York and introduces him to a glitzy, fast-paced, money-drenched lifestyle that Brandon eagerly soaks up. When Brandon's magic touch begins to falter, Walter starts to turn on his protégé. Soon the two men are attempting to outwit each other, with Walter's wife (Rene Russo) caught in the middle. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Great intensity and it gives a side by side viiew of the differnt worlds we live in!
Watch this movie once, view this movie on the second look, but play it again and participate in it. This will be discovery!
What a waste of time.....we turned it off a quarter of the way into this slow, and boring movie.....pointless script....McConaughey thinks acting is if he smiles and laughs.....really, really bad acting on his part.
