His Best Pick Was With the Heart
In Vegas, after breaking the knee in a game, the former promising football player Brandon Lang (Matthew McConaughey) has to work in a phone service foreseeing the results of the games due to the lack of professional options. After many successful predictions, he is invited by Walter Abrams (Al Pacino) to move to Manhattan and work with him in his gambling advising business. Brandon changes his name and personality, becomes famous advising clients and close to Walter’s family, and a good friend of his wife, the owner of a hairdresser saloon Toni Morrow (Rene Russo). When the predictions of Brandon fail, he feels that it is time to return home.
“Two for the Money” is a good entertainment, mainly because it is based on a true story, inclusive in the DVD there is an interview of the screenplay writer with the real Brandon. The story partially discloses an illegal business that deals with billions of dollars, and keeps the interest until the end, without being exceptional or unforgettable. Al Pacino, Matthew McConaughey and Rene Russo make this film worth. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): “Tudo Por Dinheiro” (“All for Money”)
You Win Some, You Lose Some
Las Vegas body-builder Matthew McConaughey (as Brandon Lang) finds his promising football career sidelined by a bum knee. But, he stays close to the sport by becoming a “predictor” for those interested in gambling on games. Mr. McConaughey’s 80% success rate attracts the attention of professional gambling adviser Al Pacino (as Walter Abrams). Mr. Pacino admires McConaughey’s muscular frame, and builds him into his right hand man. Their relationship is more “father/son” than romantic, however; and, Pacino is married to skinny ex-junkie Rene Russo (as Toni).
In New York, McConaughey and Pacino proceed to handle the ups and downs in the business of football gambling advice. Jeremy Piven (as Jerry) is good, in a woefully underwritten role. The weirdest scene has wealthy Armand Assante (as Novian) straddling and urinating on McConaughey; you would think he would aim at Matthew’s face, but maybe he was saving something for a possible second encounter? Also watch for the very arousing blonde Jamie King (as Alexandria) to appear in a restaurant, peddling her wares; later topless, she has brief and darkly lighted boudoir scene.
