Threat advisory: Low - Low risk of entertaining activities
If you thought you could get away with it, would you cash a $6 million lottery ticket that you knew belonged to someone else?
Struggling street artist, Adam comes across a wallet in the street and discovers it has a winning lottery ticket in it worth $6 million. The pressure is raised with Adam and his buddies become trapped inside his sweltering New York apartment with Avery Phillips (James Earl Jones), the rightful owner of the wallet.
Throughout the night trapped in the apartment, Adam's actions become increasingly desperate and violent, until he realises that stealing the ticket from the old man is wrong.
He must now reverse the mess he has created and return the winning ticket to its rightful owner. The only problem - someone else in the room knows the ticket is a winner...

James Earl Jones must be desperate. Or damned near bankrupt. There is nothing about Finder's fee that I liked, which would explain why it took me seven times to try and watch it.
The mighty threat advisory is because James Earl Jones is in it. Pray that he is never so foolish to take another part like this one again.
