Overview
John Travolta and Lisa Kudrow make a "high-energy comedy team"* in this side-splittingly 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 station's lotto-ball girl – and a criminally minded buddy (Tim Roth), Russ hatches a plan to fix the lottery. Russ's numbers come up right, but then everything goes completely wrong, throwing Russ and his co-conspirators into comic chaos.

Directed by Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail) and co-starring Ed O'Neill, Michael Rapaport and Bill Pullman, Lucky Numbers is a comedy jackpot for film fans.
