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 »

Don't waste your time
3 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

One thing comes to mind after watching this movie. Redbox! If you must see this movie, please don't spend $10 and 2 hours on this. Wait for the DVD release.

While I am happy that some folks are working and got a check for making this movie, this story is not worth full price. This is a story of what would happen if a young guy won the lottery in the ghetto. Word gets out about Kevin's (Bow Wow) winning, but because it is the 4th of July weekend he can't redeem the ticket until after the long weekend. So he has to try to hold on to the ticket and dodge gold-digging girls, thugs and drug dealers.

The storyline was predictable and the premise is weak. I guess I am supposed to care how a young man from the projects would spend his winnings, but I don't. There are some serious after school special undertones here. The writers are trying to tug the heart strings and the conscious. The heartstrings by highlighting the good girl/bad girl ideology will Kevin choose the good girl Stacie or the hot gold digger. Attempting to make the audience think, does money really solve all your problems? As was said earlier…don't care.

There are a lot of the stereotypical 'hood characters; the bible thumping grandmother, the local gangster, the hot hood rat, the good girl, the loyal best friend and the wise old person. None of the characters were interesting. If you miss The Lottery Ticket, you won't miss much.
