Too long by about 20 minutes, and takes itself too seriously near the end. But if you're looking for a movie for a boys' night out, it's a winner.

A sloppy and ridiculous movie that Pacino makes oddly entertaining.

It's a compelling drama, if only a little hollow. For my money, Pacino's bark is ultimately better than Two For the Money's bite.

By Kirk Honeycutt
A muddled melodrama about the shady and questionable though not quite illegal world of "sports advisers."

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
It's as if a version of Oliver Stone's movie has been frozen in some fraternity house beer cooler since 1987 and thawed for the age of plasma screen TVs.
