Everyone has had a two dollar bill before, right? Most people believe they're out of print, good or bad luck, or a rare commodity. But in this comprehensive documentary, all aspects of the "deuce" are explored - from its history to the superstitions surrounding it; from its use by special interest groups to the way it's perceived by consumers and vendors. The film even looks at the bill's popularity at adult establishments and the subculture of users that cherish the bill. Written by John Bennardo

User Reviews

Informative and VERY entertaining - it hit all the marks.
21 December 2015 | by jrgandourSee all my reviews

I found the movie, well paced and very informative - being a fan of the documentary genre for years - I do admire how this film in particular worked on so MANY levels - with numerous anecdotes that would range from the technical, insightful and humorous. The narrator was a fine orator and kept you engaged with the narrative of the film. I also feel that the graphics were superb in helping to convey whatever points that were being stressed, it was done in a clean a concise manner. The movie was such a whirlwind of emotions - absorbing the many historical points of the film from numerous experts in the field, to the many humorous anecdotes that would help to lighten the mood - to the very touching family and personal anecdotes. One of the many reason that I admire all the Ken Burns films (and those of the similar types of directors) is that it is no small feat to handle such subject manner as in this film, and do the project in such a way that keeps the viewer engaged for the duration - this film excels on every level, I hope that it is a great success to all involved.
