Midway through Lottery Ticket, a teen-comedy-cum-wish-fulfillment fantasy, the movie's hero, Kevin Carson, goes on a spending spree. The holder of a $370 million lottery ticket that he can't cash in until after the July 4 holiday, Kevin accepts a $100,000 loan from a local gangster and proceeds to spend it all in one night. He and his buddies ditch their Atlanta project and hit electronics stores, jewelry shops, and fancy restaurants. They buy out the Foot Locker from which Kevin was recently dismissed. And Kevin gets a striptease from the hottest girl he knows.
