  1. Filled with bleak, beautiful Hopperesque tableaus and strange characters whose lives intersect.
  2. Gries and Morris act up a storm as the optimistically named Sunny Holiday and his long-suffering manager.
  3. The filmmakers throw in an extended flatulence routine and enough graphic references to female anatomy to make "The Vagina Monologues" blush.
  4. Jackpot has much that is sweet and funny, but it is not overly original--and it is overly long and not as coherent as it might be.
  5. 40
    The movie is smart in small ways, yet an underachiever in big ones -- but it will probably play very well on television. On the big screen, it's distended and diffuse.
  6. 30
    Nobody hits the jackpot here, certainly not filmmakers Michael and Mark Polish, whose audacious, empathic first film, "Twin Falls Idaho," showed such promise.
