Two for the Money is a 2005 American sports-drama film starring Matthew McConaughey, Al Pacino, and Rene Russo. The movie revolves around the world of sports betting, following the story of Brandon Lang (Matthew McConaughey). Brandon Lang is a former college football star whose career was ended due to injury. Now working as a telemarketer, he receives a call from Walter Abrams (Al Pacino), a sports gambling tycoon who offers Brandon a job as a handicapper, predicting the outcome of football games.

After some hesitation, Brandon accepts the offer and quickly becomes a sensation due to his uncanny ability to predict the winners of football games. As he becomes more successful, Brandon is drawn into the high-stakes world of sports gambling, with Walter as his mentor and guide.

However, Brandon's success comes with a cost. He becomes addicted to the thrill of winning, and as his bets get larger, so do his risks. When he loses a key bet, he begins to spiral out of control, putting his job and his relationship with his girlfriend, Toni (Rene Russo), at risk.

The movie examines the world of sports betting from various angles, and how it affects the lives of those involved. It also delves into the psychology of gambling addiction, and how it can consume someone's life.

Matthew McConaughey delivers a strong performance as Brandon Lang, capturing the character's charisma, ambition, and ultimately, his vulnerability. Al Pacino, as Walter Abrams, brings his trademark intensity and charisma to the role of the charismatic gambling tycoon. Rene Russo shines as Toni, providing a grounding influence on Brandon's life.

The movie also features a strong supporting cast, including Jeremy Piven as Brandon's friend and colleague, and Armand Assante as a dangerous bookie who becomes a threat to Brandon's life.

The direction by D.J. Caruso is stylish and engaging, with fluid camera work and a strong sense of visual storytelling. The script, by Dan Gilroy, is well crafted and keeps the audience engaged throughout.
