Lottery Ticket (2010)
One of Summer 2010's best comedies!
This was a hilarious film. There were tons of comedians but the best humor comes from the likes of comedic actor Brandon T. Jackson (who has a dramatic turn in this film). Also rapper/actor Bow Wow was great especially in his expressions. The suspense of the movie-long chase of his character Kevin was fun and creepy. People call it "Friday" light. It's a little less profane but it's actually realistically heavy for the inner city life of some young adults trying to do better. It avoids pity-me clichés and actually offers audiences another look at project life. Kevin Carson has a job and his best female friend is a positive girl who is not hyper-sexual but instead college and career focused.
People forget that "Friday" was actually not well received by critics itself although it is heavily quoted and a favorite among many people. Although it's a cult favorite among African Americans it also went on to inspire the people behind "Pineapple Express" which was a better reviewed stoner film. "Lottery Ticket" is no stoner film. The whole family can see this and should. You will definitely laugh out loud.
The Perfect Holiday (2007)
It's not Oscar Worthy, but it's very enjoyable
It serves it's purpose as a cute and charming Holiday film. There is romance, laughs, and Christmas magic. Morris Chestnut and Gabrielle Union have never been so likable. The kids are adorable and the oldest son is quite funny throughout the film. It's no more predictable then higher grossing "This Christmas". People wary of this film might have been expecting too much from a family film. I've seen it with a family and their were laughs and great smiles for Charlie Murphy's rapping and Morris Chestnut's courting. Terrence Howard's appearance were always quite funny his Bah Humbug character was a nice unique add to the story. The supporting actors Faizon Love and Katt Williams guarantee a laugh for anyone willing to give this film a chance. No it's not as heartwarming as "It's a Wonderful Life" or musical as "White Christmas" , but it's found it's very own niche. The movie was like a Christmas story being read. It definitely put me in the holiday spirit.
