There's a worthwhile message at the heart of Lottery Ticket, but it's buried under stale humor, tired stereotypes, and obvious clichés. Read critic reviews

    Lottery Ticket tries to be funny, but ends up failing.

    "Money don't change you...it changes the people around you." Lottery Ticket stars Bow Wow as Kevin Carson, an eighteen-year-old high school graduate who lives in the hood and works at Foot Locker, but dreams of becoming a shoe designer. Things become complicated when he wins a lottery jackpot of $370 million. In spite of trying to keep his good fortune a secret, soon the neighborhood flocks to his home seeking a piece of the pie. People who had previously ignored him now shower him with attention. But for Kevin the real trick will be making it through the Fourth of July holiday weekend when he can go to the Lottery office and turn in his ticket that could potentially change his and his grandma's life forever. All he has to do now is avoid a thug out for his blood, figure out who his real friends are, and make nice with the local kingpin.

    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
