The Ticket
29 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Starring: Shannen Doherty

I watched this movie because Grandma loves to watch anything with Shannen in it. We laughed all the way through because the plot was so predictable and evil Rita screaming at her husband (or partner) was definitely one of the more memorable scenes, in typical Western (woman) style she insists on dominating him throughout the movie and humiliates and badgers him into agreeing to help her kill for the lottery ticket. Yes, Rita's has her weak lover wrapped around her greedy little finger.

Seen better movies but this movie did entertain us on an otherwise quiet evening. Grandma nearly choked when she heard Rita screech at Hank - or whatever the poor chaps name is.

Shannen Doherty was fun to watch and looked so unreal as the mother of this near-teenager. However, her acting skills made up for the obviously ill-considered age gap. Shannen is a true actor and this movie as are her others - really show how talented this lady is. Having said that, if it wasn't for Shannen holding the plot together I may have fallen asleep. Apart from Doherty's pukka acting skills, I 'd give the movie a feeble 5 out of 10.
