A movie that really should not be a comedy but just couldn't help laughing.

Hitting The Jackpot--When The Dream Becomes Real, There's A Dark Side Too 17 April 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Do you think winning the lottery would be the solution to all of life's little annoyances? Me too. But in the intriguing new documentary "Lucky," we see that the golden goose can still be a bit of a beast! Made by Jeffrey Blitz, the man who made spelling bees riveting in the crowd pleasing "Spellbound," this examination of past lottery winners hits the jackpot. The film provides quite a few facts about the lottery and I had no idea it had such a historical presence. The film explores the myth and the fantasy that have compelled Americans to make participating in the lottery the number one paid entertainment in the country. There are brief interviews with ordinary folks hoping to strike it rich as well as an extended sequence with a women obsessed with the game. But, first and foremost, this is a film about the winners--the toll it takes and the changes they make.

The five winners profiled provide a diverse cross section of America. There is a Vietnamese immigrant trying to build a better life, a content middle class couple, a destitute loner, a successful academician, and (this one is hard to describe, but I'll be nice) a working class guy who made good as a local hero. Each story has its highs and lows. Most approached the windfall with a fair amount of caution as they were thrust into the national spotlight--this group represents winning at $5.5 million, $16 million, two $22 millions, and $110 million. The film juxtaposes the winners shortly after taking home the jackpot with footage from a year later, and it's interesting to see the differences! Many helped altruistic causes with part of their money. But some of the more dramatic consequences include an alienation of friendships, divorce, a barrage of investment seekers, and even an assassination plot or two!

The film does a nice job balancing different viewpoints. One blew through his fortune, one maintains an empire, one lives as if he doesn't have money at all, and some retained relatively modest lifestyles (considering). The film is sharp and entertaining. If you've ever wondered what happened to these winners you've seen on the news, "Lucky" provides a chance to look behind the scenes and beyond the fantasy. It doesn't discourage the dream, by any means, but it showcases a dark cloud that many have never had to think about as well. Check it out before your next quick pick! KGHarris, 4/11.

Lucky entertains 27 April 2011
By M. Hoppe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Jeffrey Blitz is one of those rare directors who operates easily in the world of feature film(Rocket Science), documentary(Spellbound), and episodic television(The Office). No matter the venue he never fails to entertain and Lucky is no exception. This documentary which originally appeared at the 2010 Sundance film festival follows the lives of 5 lottery winners and their adjustment to their good/mis fortune. The film is not really much about the lottery as such though there is much to be learned about it through Bill Barminski's animated segments. What the film is really about are the personal journeys of the characters and our own perceptions and expectations about sudden wealth, transformation and dumb luck. Music is ably provided by indie musician Eef Barzelay (Clem Snide). I highly recommend this spunky and entertaining documentary.

A movie that is hurt by the trailer. I expected this to be much funnier. Not a bad movie though, just not what I thought. B- 10 Oct. 2011
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
"I think you won the lottery." Shy and Goofy Ben (Hanks) has had a crush on the receptionist Lucy (Graynor) at his office for a long time. She doesn't know he exists. When Ben comes home and finds that he has won the 36 million dollar lottery Lucy finally talks to him. When secrets come out their relationship, and morals are challenged. This is a hard movie to review. While it wasn't a bad movie and did have some funny parts, the trailer is misleading and this wasn't what I was expecting. The trailer made it look like more of a comedy then it was. Hanks does a good job playing this type of character, but the movie overall felt a little flat and boring. Like so many other movies recently it feels like there is something missing to make this better. It also felt like with this idea they could have done so much more. All that being said this movie is not terrible and if you go in expecting less of a comedy then the trailer shows you will probably enjoy this. Overall, not a bad movie, but nothing like I was expecting. Because of my expectations I didn't like it as much as I thought. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - Most likely no.

When being lucky is not what it seems 6 Aug. 2012
By Helena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is one of those low key movies one does not see big marketing campaigns about. There are some big names in it: Ann Margaret, for example. Story is set in the small town in Iowa. Two young people, who have known each other since childhood, work together in a small accounting firm. They have known each other forever. Both in some way are social misfits: he still lives in a same home with his mother; she is an orphan who likes to talk to her pet bird.

Their circumstances change when he wins lottery. Except that the lottery ticket in question is not really his... Before long, the two are married, only to realize that each one of them has a secret that may destroy their marriage. This is interesting black comedy with very unusual ending. It is a story of obsessive love, bond of loyalty and sometimes unusual ways some people can attain their happines...

More than just about the lottery 10 Aug. 2012
By Steve Kohn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was going to post an enthusiastic 5-star review, but after reading the others, especially the one by Harris, find there's little to add.

This was a superb documentary, I thought. Perfect "casting," great editing, no moralizing. It improves the longer in we get, and the last 30 minutes close the circle.

Virtually none of us will win the lottery. I'd be happy to never try, except that my dear wife is convinced that she will win one day because she's a good person and will use the money to help others. Ah, if only it worked like that.

But all of us use money, or have money use us. That's what this wonderful film is really about. That, and people. If you find people interesting, you'll find this film fascinating.

The film I watched came from the public library. I'm buying my own copy from Amazon right after I post this review.
