Zany family adventure
3 January 2006 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Ted Hunter is a boring accountant. His wife Betsy feels the need to look for romance on the Internet. As 'Mysteria', she finds 'Valentino'. Teenage daughter Courtney has a boyfriend Razor, who is in a rock band. And son Shane likes to get his money the easy way, by schemes and gambling--his father does not approve, naturally, because he believes in prudent investments.

So what will happen if Shane buys a lottery ticket and it turns out to have the winning numbers (which Shane has chosen for logical reasons)? Ted can't pass up this chance, as much as he hates gambling. But of course you have to HAVE the winning ticket and show up at the lottery office with it. Easier said than done. This movie takes us on a wild and crazy adventure in the process of reaching the goal. On the way we meet a quirky BMW salesman and a greedy, scheming potential buyer for one of his cars.

This is just silly fun for kids, and very entertaining, though I don't recall any really good acting performances, except maybe the actor playing the car salesman, and Kaye Ballard as a crabby retirement home resident. Richard Thomas was better as John Boy Walton, though he does still have some of the personality here. Randy Travis is surprisingly good in a cameo, but I can't say why. It's better if you don't know.

This may have been edited slightly, because the v-chip rating when I watched it was TV-G. I believe this would be correct, though. Only three incidents might keep it from being family-friendly: some juicy talk between 'Mysteria' and 'Valentino', a certain valuable envelope getting stuck to the posterior of a gorgeous jogger's tight shorts, and a serial killer commenting on what he did. But these are all very minor.

It's good if you're looking for fun, not quality.
