About the Movie
Based on the hit Off-Broadway musical. A young, down-and-out British shoe salesman (Dominic Marsh) learns that he’s inherited $6 million from an American uncle. However, in order to get the money he must take his uncle‘s corpse on a wild, parties-and-gambling fueled trip to Monte Carlo or lose it all to a Brooklyn dog shelter. While there he’s pursued by a desperate, put-upon optometrist (Jason Alexander) and his controlling, trigger-happy sister (Pamela Shaw), an avaricious French chanteuse (Kate Shindle), a mysterious Italian playboy (Dennis Farina), as well as a young woman from Brooklyn (Nikki M. James) dead set on getting that money for the dogs. Disguises go on, guns go off, romance blossoms and champagne corks pop in this zany, frothy, colorful and fast-paced musical farce!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: With songs about shoes and dogs, "Lucky Stiff" couldn't be sillier, but Mr. Marsh and especially Ms. James make it an enjoyable curiosity for fans of musical theater.
Rotten: Equal parts diverting and strained, most likely to please the same niche audiences who have given the material a modest stage shelf life for the last quarter-century.
Rotten: Lucky Stiff shoots for "zany" and lands at "attention deficit disorder," but the songs aren't bad.
Jason Alexander is great in "Lucky Stiff." Such a fun musical, wether or not you've seen the play!
So funny…great cast!
Great musical and can’t get enough of Jason Alexander!
