Movie Info

This film tells the story of Frank Pesce, the blue-collar worker who won $6,000,000 in New York's first state lottery. Rather than concentrate on Pesce after his windfall, the film takes place on the night of the lottery drawing, with the protagonist reflecting on his past experiences.

Critic Reviews for 29th Street

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

29th Street is a movie of considerable energy and good humor, with the expansive Aiello, the uninhibited Kazan and the screwy LaPaglia having a lot of fun with the material.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Despite itself, 29th Street proves a surprising winner.

June 6, 2018 | Full Review…

...peppered with sequences that are either overlong or entirely superfluous.

July 6, 2005 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Hardly a winner!

June 22, 2004 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Offers some interesting new twists on the well-worn theme of father-son conflicts.

July 18, 2003 | Full Review…

Shoots for Capraesque and falls well short ... but still worth watching on cable one boring night.

July 26, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5
