Al Pacino fans should find themselves quite sated this month. Like a junkie shooting an eightball, Pacino-ites get to mainline the Oscar-winning actor by way of two films -- one new theaters, one new on DVD -- each of them involving addiction.
The not-so-engaging drama, Two For The Money, is in theaters now. It's about a hotshot former jock named Brandon Lang (Matthew McConaughey) who is hired away from his fly-by-night Vegas gig picking ballgames for a 900-service by bigshot New York sports betting king Walter Abrams (Pacino). He offers the boy fame and fortune and everything that goes with it. Shit gets effed up.
