Storyline

Jenny, a clever script assistant, lives with Geoff, recently returned to Toronto from Hollywood to direct a televised lottery show. Jenny comes up with a scheme for beating the lottery, which involves the seduction of Byron, an accountant who was hired to keep the lottery honest after the previous accountant dropped dead during the show. As the scheme proceeds, difficulties arise. A cleaning man, originally from India, is suspicious when he sees the lottery - supposedly live - being pre-taped; and the person chosen to buy the winning ticket is pursued by a loan shark. As the scheme unwinds, more and more people in Toronto - and India - learn the winning numbers of the upcoming draw. Meanwhile, Jenny and the accountant start falling in love. Her determined efforts ultimately turn an imminent disaster into a financial and romantic success. Written by http://www.norflicks.com/ballsup/ballsup.htm

Crooks go for 24M dollar jackpot
22 February 2000 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

A man and woman who work for the Canadian lottery decide to scam it for the 24 million dollar pot. They figure they can pull it off with the aid of 3 other folks, but along the way more and more people got wind of the plot. First a loan shark, then an Indian cult find out something is afoot and scheme to get their hands on the loot. Plus, love and all it's emotions come into play to further complicate a rapidly deteriorating situation. Fun movie.
