Lottery Ticket Movie Review

Lottery Ticket Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 20, 2010
( Rating: 2 Star Rating)

Bow Wow plays a teen living in the projects who wins $370 million in the lottery. Too bad his crazy neighbors want to claim the prize for themselves! Find out if he Kevin survives the crazies in Kidzworld’s movie review of The Lottery Ticket!

Nobody paid Kevin Carson (Bow Wow) much attention in his Atlanta hood. He and his friend Benny (Brandon T. Jackson) were pretty much left alone until Kevin had the dumb luck to win the $370 million Mondo Millions Jackpot. Suddenly no one will leave them alone!


Weekend Warriors

Kevin is thrilled about his win until he realizes the lottery office is closed for the Fourth of July long weekend. Waiting a few days to cash a huge ticket wouldn’t be a big deal to most people, but when everyone around you suddenly wants a piece of you, three days can seem like an awful long time.


Nasty Neighbors

Suddenly Kevin and Benny are the talk of the town—and everyone wants a piece of them. Sweet Tee, the mob godfather wants Kevin to work for him. Nikki Swayze, the hottest girl in town, wants to date him. And local bad guy Lorenzo just straight up wants the ticket!


Star Power

Auto-tune mixmaster T-Pain plays a small role as the convenience store cashier who sells Kevin the winning ticket. Ice Cube plays Mr. Washington, an old man who never leaves his apartment—and the only person in town who doesn’t want a piece of Kevin’s win.


The Bottom Line

While it’s nice to see Bow Wow in a starring role, Lottery Ticket is as formulaic as it gets. If you’ve seen any of Ice Cube’s other movies, you’ve seen the same characters—there’s always the hot girl, the thug and the likable nice guy—this time played by Bow Wow. But luckily, Bow Wow is likable so you’ll laugh and cringe along with him as he dodges the desperate people in his neighborhood.

If I had to make simple choice, I'd prefer to live in It's Kind of a Funny Story simply for the people who were held in it. Despite the location setting for the story, I feel as if I could very easily fall for the characters all over again, especially in an even more personal matter. But, of course, if I was  going with a straight up fantasy like everyone seems to be, I'd most likely go with a world like Dorthy Must Die series or Alice in Wonderland. Both being these magical worlds filled with quirky creatures and people, so how could you get bored? Oh, and of course let us not forget the plenty of harrowing fight scenes for freedom from the evil queens and her many brainless followers.

I would live in The Outsiders because it's a classic book. I would love to go on adventures with the gang and read books and watch movies with Ponyboy. (Because I too always believed I was the only one who enjoyed them.) I would love to open up to Johnny because he is such a kind hearted soul.
