Two for the money

Two for the money is a movie that had all the key ingredients for me to want to watch it:

1. A good cast – I enjoy Al Pacino movies
2. An American sports theme
3. A gambling/spread betting theme
4. Rene Russo

I enjoyed the movie but I had a couple of reservations. The plot just lacked a littel cutting edge to it – it didn’t want to be an all out comedy or an all out thriller and consequently kind of missed being really good at any one thing. It had some aspects of the high pressure sales seen in Boiler Room and the comeback kid feeling of Jerry Maguire but ended up being wide of the mark of those two movies.

Overall – 6/10 – Not bad and an interesting premise that does not quite deliver
