Plot outline: Winter, 1988: Harrisburg PA's celebrity weatherman, Russ Richards, is broke: he's borrowed heavily to open a snowmobile dealership, and it's still unseasonably warm. 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?

Comment: No one in this movie is a good guy, all of them have flaws not all of them are good people and just desserts don't come to the bad guys. The movie works for it's somewhat original plot and the good script. The movie works for me because of John Travolta's very good performance as a crazy weatherman that dreams of being a game show host? The movie also works so well because of the time period and looking at the aspects of the 80's, and they picked a completely random place to set it, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania? It makes it that much more interesting. For Documentary fans watch for Michael Moore in a small part. Fun to watch. What upset me about this movie was the release date was moved around so much and promotion for it was zilch. It was very good though. The problem I think was it was too offbeat for the execs to appreciate. When I saw the movie I was the only person watching it.
