Trivia

Early in the film when Kevin and Benny are staring at the Nikki Swayze character, Benny does similar face motions involving his lips that mirror what Chris Tucker's character Smokey from the 1995 classic Friday did when him and Craig stare at Nia Long's character while she is jogging. Ice Cube, who plays Mr. Washington, starred as Craig in Friday and also wrote the film. Like Chris Tucker, Brandon T. Jackson improvised many of his lines for this movie. See more »

It had the right numbers, but not all the right ingredients...
18 November 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

While "Lottery Ticket" is a comedy movie, it wasn't all that funny. Don't get me wrong here, because the movie is still entertaining enough for what it turned out to be, but it just wasn't all that funny, and it lacked certain elements that would make it stand out from numerous other comedies in the genre.

The story in "Lottery Ticket" is about young Kevin who lives with his grandmother in a project housing. When he happens to win 370 million dollars in a lottery, things are about to change. And not everything changes for the better.

There were some good enough aspects to the movie, such as what happens to a person when winning a ridiculous amount such as 370 million dollars, and what happens to the people and everything and everyone in the nearby vicinity when finding out about such a winning. But it was just all hindered by the predictability of the movie.

"Lottery Ticket" is a very predictable movie. You know what will happen a long time before it does happen on the screen, and that predictability was a cumbersome anchor around the movie, slowing it down.

The acting in the movie was quite alright, and they had some good names to the cast list; which included Loretta Devine, Terry Crews, Keith David. I will also says that both Shad Moss and Brandon T. Jackson were actually doing quite alright in carrying the movie.

If you enjoy comedies, then there are far better and more amusing choices available in the comedy genre. "Lottery Ticket" is the type of movie that you will most likely watch once, then never return to it again, as it just doesn't have contents to support multiple viewings.

My rating of "Lottery Ticket" is a slightly less than mediocre four out of ten stars.
