John Travolta and Lisa Kudrow make a high-energy comedy team in the side-splitting funny comedy inspired by a real-life scam to win the Pennsylvania lottery.
Travolta is truly irresistible as Russ Richards, a weatherman in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Russ is a local celebrity, but when an unusually mild winter causes his snowmobile dealership to take a plunge, Russ needs a get-rich scheme and fast. With his greedy girlfriend (Lisa Kudrow) the TV stations lotto-ball girl and a criminally minded buddy (Tim Roth), Russ hatches a plan to fix the lottery. Russ numbers come up right, but then everything goes completely wrong, throwing Russ and his co-conspirators into comic chaos.
Directed by Nora Ephron and co-starring Ed ONeill, Michael Rapaport and Bill Pullman, Lucky Numbers is a comedy jackpot for film fans.
