Ricky B stars as Isaac, a down-on-his-luck janitor that works for an advertising agency. Along with his best friend Mike, they are broke, busted and disgusted. But Isaac’s life does a complete 180 degrees when he strikes it rich from hitting the lottery. He then ends up purchasing the company he used to work for and decides that it’s payback time – sticking it to all those who walked over him while he was just a “lowly janitor.” The movie has a great message that deals with the dangers of greed and revenge.
Dove "Family-Approved" - Recommended for ages 12 and over.
This is a terrific DVD with a wonderful story. The character of Isaac (Ricky B.) is an easy-going custodian who has his eyes on a nice girl named Sheila. When the COO of his company, a man named Henry, takes over for Isaac's departing friend, Henry wants to save the company money by hiring a cleaning service. He comes down hard on Isaac to try to get him to quit. Soon after a rude lady at the gas station misunderstands Isaac's comment about the lottery and shoves a ticket at him and then demands to be paid. He tries to explain he didn't want to purchase a ticket but finally does so to avoid further arguments. He actually wins 25 million dollars and soon learns how quickly life can change, both for the better and for the worse. He gets back at Henry by giving him nasty jobs to perform and he pursues Sheila with expensive gifts. He doesn't have the business sense that Henry does, however, and soon finds himself actually needing Henry's help to keep the company afloat. Can this millionaire swallow his pride and make amends? This film contains an interesting story with solid acting and we are happy to award it our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. The biblical idea of contentment being great gain is clearly revealed in this movie.
