Lucky Numbers" builds from a shaky first act and actually gets funnier as the tone gets darker.

does manage to possess an enjoyable tone, but often loses its focus and wonders off in so many directions, it's hard to keep up

In a brazen gamble that mixes a risky brew of raw indie humor with Hollywood feelgood fluff, Lucky Numbers plays a game with the expectations of both of these audiences.

There's something refreshing about the way it invites us to splash around in its little wading pool of amorality.

If Lisa Kudrow were in every movie, the cineplex would be a happier place.

All of the main characters in this movie are despicable. This is why they are fun.

Director Nora Ephron doesn't quite roll a seven here, but she still leaves the table a winner in this amusing tale of lottery players gone bad.

Looks like your basic formulaic undertaking, but it's got a lovely subversive edge to it.

Filled with enough laughs (there's an amazing visual gag involving a semi-truck) and good performances that it's probably worth a look.

A solid, entertaining flick that benefits from a superb cast that transcends the formula of the script by Adam Resnick.

Travolta and Kudrow make a winning combination, and the result is mindless, instantly forgettable comic fluff that will engage you, given half a chance.

Kudrow is the film's true manic engine, and her ability to carry off perky amorality propels the preposterous plot forward.
