Lottery Ticket

In addition to millions of dollars, when someone wins the lottery, they also win greedy relatives, continual litigation and multiple lightening strikes.

Fortunately, the lucky ticket-holder in this comedy only has to cope with a vindictive ex-con.

When word gets out that Kevin (Bow Wow) won the $370 million jackpot, his neighbourhood comes a-knocking.

Unable to collect his winnings for 3 days, Kevin must keep the winning ticket away from the perils of spontaneous prosperity, i.e. sexy sycophants, a loan shark (Keith David) and a local thug.

Fortunately, Kevin has an impoverished ex-boxer (Ice Cube) in his corner.

While it attempts to evoke nostalgia for old school neighbourhood-centric comedies, Lottery Ticket is a lousy torchbearer: the casting is second-rate, the characters are typecasts, and the jokes are tired.

And besides, regardless of who claims the winning ticket, in any lottery the manufacturer of the giant novelty cheque is always the winner. (Red Light)
