Storyline

If you find your dad, what happens next? When she turns 18, unhappy Lidda Daniels leaves Southern California to look for Charlie, her father, a professional gambler who abandoned her years before. On her way to Vegas, she picks up Colonel, a video store clerk whom she finds attractive even though they've never spoken. He's is happy to go, in part because he sees himself as a great poker player. It takes Lidda time to track down Charlie, who's involved in his own tangles: he's freshly back in Vegas for high-stakes poker with Tony, an old nemesis. Tony is jealous of Charlie over a woman, plus Tony has a new habit of hiring a hit man to kill anyone who beats him. Can anyone win? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not a great movie but..
11 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Luckytown can be an entertaining flick to watch with a group of friends. Disregarding all of the goofy duologue, overused storyline, and some lazy character development, Luckytown could actually be a fun movie. Try not to take it too seriously, even though it tries too hard to be serious. The only real complaints I had was the acting of Vincent Kartheiser. His duologue was very cheesy at times and his acting didn't make it any better. I really liked Luis Guzman. I also liked James Caan and Kirsten Dunst. There are some decent action scenes and the relationship of Lidda and Colonial can be very interesting at times. I thought the director really tried to give a good effort, even though a lot of the film fails. To enjoy this Luckytown you have to go in with a sense of just wanting to see an entertaining film. Don't expect it to be amazing. But overall take Luckytown as a fun popcorn movie!
