Movie Info

Two Bits was the price for a movie ticket during the Depression era. And two bits is what young Geraldo Barone doesn't have. Geraldo lives in South Philadelphia with his widowed, underemployed mother Mary Elizabeth Mastrantanio. Dominating the household is the boy's grandfather Al Pacino, who rambles on incessantly about his imminent demise. Producer Joseph Stefano (of Psycho and Outer Limits fame) is more concerned with character than story in this leisurely, autobiographical slice-of-life … More

If King of the Hill couldn't draw patrons despite appearing on tons of 10-best lists, what's a comparably themed small-change remembrance gonna do?

Al Pacino gives a touching performance as a dying old man in this sensitive little film.

Fantastica Daily

Bittersweet coming-of-age tale about sexuality, love, loss, and forgiveness.

It obviously has its moments, but most of the way this is pretty tepid stuff. We've seen it all before.

Audience Reviews for Two Bits

½

Although this movie gets off to a weak start and is fairly uneven throughout, it has enough heart and a strong enough plot that it won me over. Although subtly so, this is a relatively dark film that approaches the coming-of-age formula in a unique way. The acting is far from brilliant overall, but Pacino's supporting performance is the exception. His character portrait is so moving and vivid, I believe he deserved an Oscar nomination.

Slowly knocking off the last few Pacino movies I've not seen. This was a good movie, unlike most movies you think of with an actor like Pacino; doesn't mean he can't perform them though. In short the movie is about a boy and his dream, with his dying grandfather (Pacino) guiding him and telling him to always want and never give up. Pacino's character is pretty much the opposite of most of his, none of his patented deep pissed voice, not even a whole lot of camera time, he is more the supporting actor. But a small moving story that I enjoyed.
