Two for the Money runs hot and cold. While I did appreciate some elements of the film, it couldn't overcome a dreadful final act that sinks an otherwise amiable film.

Original screenwriting gives way to clichés, and the resolution, while offering closure, seems false -- too much a case of the filmmakers wanting to have their cake and eat it, too.
