Quotes

[first lines]
Tepper: [knocking on her door] Mrs. Darmsetter? Hey... You left your door open again.
Mrs. Darmsetter: Heaven sake, I wonder how did that happen.
Tepper: Yes well, how is everything?
Mrs. Darmsetter: Well, I'm worried about my mail. I think someone's stealing it. Because I haven't received any letters from my kids in a long time, and they always write.
Tepper: Well, are they taking all your mail or just the letters?
Mrs. Darmsetter: Just the letters. You'd think they'd take everything else, wouldn't you? They don't.

Thought it was Fun and Attention Getting
24 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was fun and interesting, the story is simple, but the modern setting and the idea of the lottery ticket made it attention getting.

For a movie with no great effects and sounds, i could not walk away while it was on....i did not want to miss the ending twist. Yes, the movie is predictable to the point that you new there would be a grab you ending, but I like expecting that and you never know who is at the door.

The characters all had their own querkyness about them that draws you, as we can all relate to one of them. I give this movie two thumbs up and suggest everyone sit down and enjoy a simple yet interesting movie.
