    Like Kevin's lucky fortune cookie, Lottery Ticket is a sweet treat with a substantive message. show more

    It's easy to see the potential in Lottery Ticket, which boasts an entertaining idea and a game cast. But you only win big if every number hits. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    No one on the creative side has his eyes on the characters, so they flounder in a sea of misguided energy. show more

    More helpful is Ice Cube's endearing performance as an aged sparring partner of Leon Spinks and Muhammad Ali who provides cover and advice for Kevin as he tries to hold onto both his wits and the ticket. show more

    The Lottery Ticket doesn't hit the comedy jackpot, but it doesn't roll snake eyes, either. In my book, that's a winner. show more

    Tom Russo Boston Globe

    There are some amusing looks at the elation - and panic - that come with winning big, from the praise-Jesus swooning of Kevin's grandma (underutilized Loretta Devine). show more

    Jennie Punter The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Entertaining, if highly predictable, escapist ensemble comedy. show more

    I feel that my beautiful Nubian (black) people really need to step their movie game up. The movies produce by Africans in American are always about something foolish, hood, drama, or the "thank you lord gospel junk". I wonder is this by design; or will there ever be a change in our creativity, concepts and subject. Deep within, I hope to see Nubians to create films that will express our greatness in science,battle and unity.For once I would love to see us in space within the cosmos; OUR TRUE ORIGIN. May the world love each other.
