Not a great movie, and definitely not for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 14, 2007
With this dud of a dark comedy, it's clear that director Nora Ephron's unluckiest number is that of John Travolta.

The ping-pong ball trick was funny...but that was all.

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

a black comedy that would have been much funnier and edgier if it hadn't been softened up to accomodate a star of Travolta's magnitude.

About as lucky as a broken mirror.

The colorful cast saves Travolta's hide this time around.

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.

Es una verdadera pena que una directora capaz como Ephron se haya prestado para esta cinta que ni llega a ser comedia ni thriller en su totalidad

...a movie with a strong premise nailed down firmly, but no decent characters, inspiration, mild humor or even stable plot structure to top off the package.

Instead of becoming involved in the convoluted plot, we stand on the outside looking in, not laughing enough to make it all worthwhile.

Tells too much story at not enough energy. It should have been cut back and cranked up.

All of the main characters in this movie are despicable. This is why they are fun.
January 1, 2000
A roundelay of frenzied action that racks up deal after extortionate deal and body after body while hit after retro hit plays on the soundtrack; sound and fury, pretty much about nothing.

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.

would make a fine watch on TV if there were nothing else to do.
