Kind of interesting money how $6 Millon can change things. I really liked James Earl Jones in this one.

Interesting movie. While the acting might not be top box office and it all takes place in one apartment. I thought the plot had it's funny points and very interesting character interaction. I think the writing was much better than most movies out there and the ending was not what was expected. If you are tired of the same old movies then this is worth watching.

A truly horrible, nonsensical movie...

"I won't give away the end of this movie, but, if you are unfortunate enough to watch it, at the end ask yourself: "How could this be; how is it possible that things have happened this way?" That may not make much sense now, but suffice it to say that, unlike what a previous reviewer wrote, this movie is undone more by its last 20 seconds than its last 20 minutes (though that reviewer makes valid points). And that is only true if you can stomach all of the contrived plot twists that are forced down your throat to that point!The story ends up making no sense of all, unless you are supposed to see this as some sort of supernatural happening. And if it is that, it is really weak. Jeff Probst (the writer/director) should make watching this movie one of the challenges on his show Survivor.Perhaps the funniest part of this horrible viewing experience was when I turned to Jeff Probst's commentary track on the DVD for an explanation of the ridiculous plot. Turn that track on and he immediately tells you that it won't contain any discussion of the plot. Instead, he explains, his commentary will focus on how to make a movie, which is kind of like Madonna offering acting lessons."
A very poor effort by a novice movie maker....

"It's amazing that this much acting talent could be shoe-horned into such a bad movie. I don't see how it could have yielded six 5-star reviews (The Godfather it ain't).

Using its better scenes, you could put together a trailer for this movie that would make you want to see it. And you may be entertained through much of the movie. But when the story becomes quite nonsensical in the final minutes of the movie, you will feal cheated and wish that you had watched something else. At least that's how everyone in my family felt when we watched it."

"The story starts out with a young man finding a wallet on the street while considering marriage to the lady he loves. He calls the only number he can find in the wallet that is the supposed to be the brother of the owner. But then he finds a lottery ticket in it and hears the numbers for the winning ticket. The ticket in the wallet. So what would you do if you found a wallet on the street and it had a lottery ticket worth six million dollars in it? Then his three friends join him for an evening of poker. When a man, played by James Earl Jones, rings the bell and says he is the owner of the wallet, the finder decides to swap the ticket for his losing ticket. The wallet recoverer is invited to play cards by his friends and the the police arrive searching the building and forbiding anyone to leave.

The young man starts to panic wondering if the wallet owner knows he swapped tickets. Finally one of his friends realizes what he has done and takes action against the man that came to recover the wallet. An action that may lead to a life or death result. When a cop arrives at the scene he is given the lottery ticket to make sure the right thing is done. But then at the end we see another ticket given to the man recovering the wallet. The twists and turns in the story make it rather interesting and I enjoyed it. Good quality DVD with decent replayability. If you enjoyed this be sure to catch "Millions (2005)" and "It Could Happen to You (1994)". - C. Luster"
