"Two Turkeys in one year? John, fire your agent!"
1 stars

Oh Travolta, oh Travolta, oh Travolta. This isn't you year. First of all, your pet project Battlefield Earth was one of the biggest turkey's of the year, and now you follow that up with another bad movie. Travolta got a second chance at movie stardom after making a comeback in "Pulp Fiction" - but for some reason things are just going downhill again. This film is as unfunny and as unentertaining as you could get, at times my eyes felt heavy and were ready to go into a deep sleep.zzzzz

Travolta is a cheesy weatherman named Russ Richards who has
gone in over his head with an unprofitable snowmobile business.
What he decides is to hatch up a plan with a club owner pal
(Roth) and a lotto number girl (Kudrow) to rig the lottery
and keep the money. Of course, nothing goes to plan.
Travolta's character is just one of the unlikable characters
of the tale. Lisa Kudrow's trashy, foul-mouthed vixen is
probably more annoying. Why would she think her fans would
want to see her in this?
It's just such a pity all this talent has been wasted. Tim
Roth, who co-starred with Travolta in "Pulp Fiction" almost
looks bored here, and not even a slightly dorky turn from
Bill Pullman can save the film.
The film meddles uneasily between comedy, black comedy and
drama and it's as if they are just making it up as they
go. I couldn't help but wonder when this film was going to
Travolta beetter take a look at his lucky numbers before
deciding on his next film project.

for my closing statement I'd just like to....zzzzzzz
