A dark comedy in the muckraking mode that starts out murderously well but then begins to unravel -- just like Russ' misbegotten schemes.

The characters are generally too repulsive even for our toleration, much less our affection, and the comedy is too mild to transcend that lack of involvement.

Now I like dumb comedy as much as the next dimwit, but not when the filmmakers condescend to their characters in order to make the audience feel superior.

Ephron ... delivers characters and situations that are lame and oddly condescending.

Not a great movie, and definitely not for kids.

With this dud of a dark comedy, it's clear that director Nora Ephron's unluckiest number is that of John Travolta.

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
