Gig, his seedy pal, advises him to run an insurance scam; when it goes awry, Russ is out another $10,000 and in trouble with Dale, a bat-wielding thug. Gig convinces Russ to rig the state lottery with the help of Crystal, a gold-digging ditz with a heart of tin. They have to find a beard to buy the ticket, and then they have to cash it. Soon, murder and various double-crosses add to Russ’s nightmare. A lazy cop zeroes in. Jail is closer than riches. Will Russ have to choose between his money and his life?

A definition of good comedy
I’ve just watched it again and I only reconfirmed that this gem deserves a place at the top of your lists. This is class. A light, entertaining, very well shot film. And what a cast. This is the second best cast I’ve ever seen in any movie after Glengarry Glen Ross! I mean Ed O’Neill! Tim Roth! Michael Moore! How can you fail a comedy starring these guys? And on top of that John Travolta, Bill Pullman and Lisa Kudrow deliver hilarious performances and prove how great actors they are. The scenario is witty but this is mainly an actors’ movie. Moreover, it’s obvious they had great fun making this. If I had to choose the best part it would be the grimaces of Bill Pullman. Respect to the man for making me fall out of the couch laughing! Unbelievable that such a fine movie has an overall rating of 5, while complete flops get a 7 or an 8. Makes me wonder of the standards of voters here. What did you want guys? More gratuitous sex and gore? More tasteless jokes? Well you’d better reconsider your priorities because this IS a good movie.
Watch it for Lisa Kudrow and Bill Pullman !
John Travolta is embarrassing. He is NOT funny. Unfortunately the story is about his character Russ Richards. This Russ Richards annoys everyone in the movie and the audience. Travolta’s last good movie was 1997’s SHE’S SO LOVELY.
Lisa Kudrow does her best, but can’t save the movie. Her character ranges between being stupid and being ruthless. Some of the better moments AND laughs come from her.
Bill Pullman steals the show as a cop who doesn’t want to work. Unfortunately he only appears at the end of the movie when you are so bored that you are not longer interested in what is happening next.
Good cast (except Travolta), poor story, nothing special. 4 out of 10
