‘The Lost Lotteries’ (2022) – Netflix Movie – Review: Overt Silliness that Will Make You Laugh

The Lost Lotteries is a comedy movie written and directed by Prueksa Amaruji, starring Wongravee Nateeton, Phantira Pipityakorn, Napapa Tantrakul, Padung Songsang and Somjit Jongjohor.

A comedy with an colorful ensemble of characters who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances, and tells their story with comedic distance, jokes aplenty, and silly gags. But always with kind irony.

Premise

Five strangers team up to recover their winning lottery tickets from the mob boss who stole them from them. Together they must scheme and carry out their first heist ever.

Movie Review

A comedy full of slapstick, silly gags and a lot of movement and action. It is a light feature that entertains in its exaggeration and self-irony.

By no means is it a high-brow comedy, as it borders clownish humor. But its tempo is good, it is incessant, and mocking of the self pity the characters are going through.

The story takes a good turn when the group of “unfortunates” have to confront the mafia kingpin. With a premise that is so unlikely only a comedy can be made out of it. The stories of these five strangers might come across as simple, but in fact they are made good use of in this feature, in this comedy of errors, and embarrassing moments.

The photography is good, full of color, further enlivening the story. As for the performances, they are histrionic with a comedic purpose. The theatrics are very befitting to this sort of humor.

In Conclusion

It is a funny, strangely cheerful and dark movie that relies on exaggeration and kind mockery, making it a light viewing experience.

It is certainly not devoid of humor.
