Lottery Ticket
14 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1995 Shad '(Lil)Bow Wow' Moss had an uncredited roll in Snoop Dogg's Murder Was the Case: The Movie straight-to-video short film. Since then Bow Wow has been in movies such as Like Mike (2002), Roll Bounce (2005), and Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006).

Bow Wow has never really established himself as an actor like some other rappers (ex. Will Smith), which is not to say he never will, but in this particular movie, he doesn't offer anything different than he does in his other movies. But in this movie he's good, he is exactly what his character needs to be.

Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder) is good, he has some funny lines.

But this movie isn't a Friday rip-off or anything like that. It's more about the choices Bow Wow makes after he realizes he wins the lottery. And the choices he makes are pretty interesting.

I recommend this movie for someone who doesn't mind turning off his brain and just watching a movie.
