Details Limited Release: Jul 15, 2011; Rated: R; Length: 103 Minutes; Genre: Comedy; With: Ari Graynor and Colin Hanks

Ben (Colin Hanks), a mild-
mannered Midwestern millionaire lottery winner who happens to be a serial killer, marries the girl next door of his dreams 
 (Ari Graynor), who happens to be a gold digger. Comedy high jinks ensue in Lucky, as the lady considers just how much she's willing to overlook in the name of bling. The concept, perilously high, is further overloaded by performances that are perilously broad, particularly from Graynor and an ill-used Ann-Margret as Ben's mother. It is fun, though, 
 to see the younger Hanks play a murderer — it's like seeing Justin Bieber work blue. B–
