Storyline

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

Why do you have one in your wallet?
21 December 2015 | by elubinSee all my reviews

The director takes us on a beautiful, personal, story about the $2 bill. My 12 year old son and I saw it together. It was fun to learn the history of the $2 bill. And the reasons that people keep them. You'll probably get to a point in the movie and think to yourself "That's Me!". Then pull a $2 bill out of your wallet or have a childhood flashback to your bubbe giving you one. :) You'll also walk away checking all of your serial numbers for that rare ladder. The documentary provided an good mix of expert interviews and individuals. The rare footage inside the mint is cool. We didn't know anything about the red stripe ones. Can't wait to see it again!
