Lottery Ticket

Bow Wow stars as Kevin Carson who wins the Lottery but needs to keep it hidden from the neighborhood until he can cash in his ticket after the Lottery offices re-open after the long July 4th weekend while avoiding the local thug who wants to beat him up. Black comedy ensemble regulars abound like Ice Cube, Loretta Devine, Charlie Murphy, Terry Crews, and Mike Epps with a little help from new stars Naturi Naughton and Brendon T. Jackson. The movie follows the formula set out by movies like Friday and Barbershop but it is still a fun ride. The best part of these films are the neighborhood characters and how they help each other and pull together as a community behind the local hero. A good movie that does not break any new ground but is a fun way to kill an afternoon at the movies.
