Lottery Ticket (2010)
Critic Consensus: There's a worthwhile message at the heart of Lottery Ticket, but it's buried under stale humor, tired stereotypes, and obvious clichés.
A kid from the projects scores the jackpot in the lottery and fights to protect his ticket over the course of a treacherous holiday weekend in this all-star comedy featuring Ice Cube, Charlie Murphy, Terry Crews, and Loretta Devine. With the Fourth of July fast approaching, Kevin Carson (Bow Wow) purchases a pair of lottery tickets and settles down in front of the television to catch the winning numbers. When Kevin realizes he's just won 370 million dollars, he knows his neighbors will all come knocking the moment word of his massive windfall gets out. And he's right, too; before long, the local thugs are looking to take the ticket by force, and the sexiest girls in the neighborhood are begging to bear his children. Unfortunately for Kevin and his grandma, the lottery-claims office doesn't open until Monday, and over the next 72 hours there are more than a million ways the winning ticket could fall into the wrong hands. … More

Critic Reviews for Lottery Ticket
No doubt the characters are stereotypes, but the performances are handled with a knowing wink and a great deal of fun.
It all comes off a bit like an extended episode of "Everybody Hates Chris" with really bad language.
Let's call it four out of six numbers, with no power bonus. Some payoff, but don't quit your job.
it has about 40 minutes of story and needs to be padded out to its 99-minute running time
A tasteless and obnoxious "comedy," "Lottery Ticket" is easily one of the year's worst films.
Audience Reviews for Lottery Ticket
Very predictable, and pretty generic. But the movie has a few very funny one-liners, and a pretty good performance by Bow Wow. Not the best out there, but I've seen comedies that are a lot worse than this for sure.
A very unfunny and boring movie. It was an interesting concept but a bad execution. I only laughed 3 times the whole movie. D
Moral: "Money Doesn't Change You, It Changes the People Around You!"
It was entertaining and fun, not alot of comedy involved but it was a good movie.
Kevin Carson is a young man living in the projects who has to survive a three-day weekend after his opportunistic neighbors find out he's holding a winning lottery ticket worth $350 million.
