Critic Reviews for Jackpot
This is a comedy but the laughter it prompts is dark and parched.
Because there is no real chance Sunny will triumph -- Rocky this isn't -- we await the end with the same polite, mildly bemused vacancy with which we await the end of a serious karaoke performance, only without the benefit of alcohol.
Ends up a lot like Sunny's singing: pointless and more than a little flat.
There's a sense in which we're always waiting for it to kick in.
Gries and Morris play this luckless, clueless pair with such understanding and presence that they make Sunny and Lester come alive in every scene.
Writer-directors Michael and Mark Polish ... are going for something grittier in their follow-up, Jackpot. Unfortunately, this entails mixing country-kitsch cliches and excessive vulgarity with their narrative flourishes.
