Kevin Carson (Bow Wow) a young man living in the projects, is just an ordinary
guy…until he wins $370 million in the Mondo Millions Lottery. That’s the good news.
The bad news is, the lottery claim office is closed for the long Fourth of July
weekend, so, before he can collect his prize, Kevin is going to have to figure out how to
keep a lid on his good fortune and survive the next three days.
As news of his windfall spreads through the community like a grass fire, Kevin
quickly discovers the good, the bad and the ugly in his closest friends and neighbors.
Girls who could never be bothered before start chasing him down. Everyone wants a
piece of him—including the reverend, the local loan shark and one very threatening
recent parolee won’t take no for an answer. On edge and on the run, he even begins to
question the intentions of his best friend, Benny (Brandon T. Jackson).
He also starts to realize the power he holds in his hands and what this lottery
ticket could really mean to him, his future, and the community.
It’s funny what people will do when money is involved.
Ever wonder what your friends, family and neighbors would do if you won the lottery? Well, this urban pic paints a rather bleak but funny look at a worst case scenario. Unfortunately, this film is so full of near nudity and foul language that the fun was quickly turned to pain for this reviewer. It is a shame that many films today must still delve into depravity in order to try to invoke laughs from their audiences. This is not a family film.
