It's sad that the drama outside of the story setup is deliberately kept in the background, making it very hard to care about some of the characters. As well as Wall Street which was mentioned by another reviewer, I also thought of Glengarry Glen Ross when looking at the office scenes of competing sports tipsters.
I enjoyed it and bought it as a present for someone else but it's a shame there wasn't just a little more character development of the supporting cast to complete the picture.
Pacino plays the same Ricky Roma character from Glengarry Glen Ross. It's his best role since Insomnia (albeit nothing as good as Don Corleone). And forget what the other reviews say- Matt is as good as he was in Contact- nothing amazing, but solid.
I am a sports gambler. I felt the emotions. I felt the tension. I felt the losses. If you are like me you will enjoy this movie. If you have never placed a bet, you'll wonder what the hell it's about. Which side are you on?
"Scent of a woman" is another business, definitely a great movie. It would deserve 4 stars.
