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

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

Not a great movie, and definitely not for kids.

Gags hit with sledgehammer heaviness and most of them mock the movie's own characters so relentlessly -- and mirthlessly -- that one winces rather than laughs.

Just too tame.

Leave it to director Nora Ephron to declaw a black comedy like Lucky Numbers, turning it into something docile and almost sweet.

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

The laughs are few in this inert, ungenerous comedy.

January 1, 2000
A dark comedy in the muckraking mode that starts out murderously well but then begins to unravel -- just like Russ' misbegotten schemes.
January 1, 2000
A movie that drips with condescension.

A black comedy really works only if everybody is equally heartless... But Travolta seems determined to play a hero, and the movie gets knocked off balance.
January 1, 2000
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.
January 1, 2000
It's the easiest kind of comedy, comedy of derision. No joke about the rubes is left alone. And no obvious plot twist is, either.
