Maddeningly frustrating...but you'll love it
18 April 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Percy, an ex-footballer, has his pocket picked, which is seen only by young Winnie (not Minnie) so when he goes to pay for his drink in a pub, finds he can't, and the bartender takes as insurance the one thing he does have of worth, a lottery ticket.

Naturally the ticket wins and for the next hour and a half, he and Winnie have to figure out how to raise the 5 and 6 from scratch to get the ticket back! She gets fired from her job when her boss catches her with her fingers in the till getting the money from there, but then Percy "accidentally" buys another man a drink in the pub with it anyway. They try busking but drop the money when the pickpocket is spotted - they chase after him and find he's put all of Percy's money on a winning greyhound, but he gets away before they can claim half. The movie will make you want to throw rocks at the TV out of sheer frustration, but in retrospect it's actually really good. The lead actors make a gorgeous couple, and their singing is very enjoyable. 9/10 - just don't lose your temper!
