Nearly every step the movie makes feels completely random, with no payoff.

Thank your lucky stars I had to see Gil Cates Jr.'s darkly comic misfire early enough to warn you against wasting your own time and money.

Mr. Hanks performs with customary blankness and a woeful lack of chemistry with his hardworking co-star.

Nothing is bleaker than failed black comedy, which this is.
July 14, 2011
Can a serial killer and a gold-digger find happiness as lottery winners? That's the thin premise of this comedy misfire.

It's meant to be deadpan but Lucky is just dead, period. Only Graynor manages to inject any life into it. But she might as well be shooting electricity through a corpse
July 13, 2011
The concept, perilously high, is further overloaded by performances that are perilously broad, particularly from Graynor and an ill-used Ann-Margret as Ben's mother.

A dark, deeply deranged comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
July 13, 2011
It gets bogged down in slo-mo indie quirk when it should be faster, more in our face.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 12, 2011
Drama cannot live on wobbly metaphors alone, and the untenable roles are played without charisma.
July 11, 2011
Lucky, unfortunately, is terrible: overbearing, obnoxious, and boring.

Colin Hanks perfects his enigmatic poker face veneer and knack for scary fun, as an Iowa bottom feeder working stiff. Still stuck in perpetual boyhood and living at home with his clinging when not nagging mom Pauline, a wickedly eccentric Ann-Margret.
