Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
In D.J. Caruso's Two for the Money, you can see Al Pacino doing something he's done a lot lately: Having a terrific time being an actor.
New York Daily News - Jack Mathews
Too long by about 20 minutes, and takes itself too seriously near the end. But if you're looking for a movie for a boys' night out, it's a winner.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
It says in the beginning of the film that Two for the Money is "inspired by a true story." Problem is, it's just not that inspired.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Sports betting is a great subject for a movie, but Two for the Money is short on the number-crunching nitty-gritty.
L.A. Weekly - Unnamed
Dramatic failings are only exacerbated by D.J. Caruso's direction: He composes every frame as if for television -- despite the fact that the film is shot in widescreen -- and his visual style is about as cinematic as sports talk radio.
