Abominably unfunny, but when Bow Wow is your lead? That's not surprising…
8 September 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

(Plot) Kevin Carson (Bow Wow) lives in the projects. He must be able to survive a three day weekend after his sneaky neighbors find out he's holding a lottery ticket that is worth a ridiculous 370 million dollars.

The idea was actually quite amusing. It was the execution which bothered me immensely. None of these guys are likable what so ever, especially Bow Wow. I get it was supposed to be a comedy, but these guys annoyed me so much. Sadly, I'm gonna have to get used to Bow Wow being in movies, because I highly doubt he is gonna go away any time soon. I didn't laugh during this movie, not once. And I usually laugh at least a couple times during something. It was a really unfunny film that I don't wish upon anyone

Final Thoughts: Unless you're a huge Bow Wow fan, I would stay away from this movie. I love comedy, and there was nothing remotely unfunny about this train-wreck
