The Synopsis for Masterminds (2016) 1080p

David Ghantt discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams. He is an uncomplicated man stuck in a monotonous life. Day in and day out he drives an armored vehicle, transporting millions of other people's money with no escape in sight. The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work crush Kelly Campbell who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime. Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with $17 million in cash...only problem is he foolishly hands the money over to this wild group of double crossers and has been set up to take the fall. With the bandits blowing the millions on lavish and ridiculous luxuries, they leave behind a glaring trail of evidence. Now on the lam and in over his head, David must dodge the authorities, evade a hilarious hit man, Mike McKinney, and try to turn the tables on the ones he trusted most.

Despite having comedy juggernauts like Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudekis andLeslie Jones (The people who made me laugh other than...), ZachGalifianakis was the powerhouse genius that made this movie flow. Whenhe was not on the screen, it did not flow like when he was on, and hewas always on. He played stupid so brilliantly that he will have youbusting a gut uncontrollably. The more dimwitted the funner it got.

Proving the It's so funny it's true statement is correct, Galifianakisleads an ensemble cast in a story based on true events about a securityguard leading a boring life about to marry the only woman who wouldhave him (Played hilariously by Kate Mckinnon) until his co-worker(Kristen Wiig) used her lady charm to convince him to help her friend(Played Owen Wilson, but not in his best role) rob their employer. Nowhe's on the run from The FBI (Played by the Hilarious, Leslie Jones),and a hit man hired to keep him from talking (Played by also HilariousJason Sudekis).

It's a pretty well laid out heist movie, but I got to say, it has somany comic masterminds in it you'd expect that I would laugh so hard, Idie of it, but the only real worthy laughs come from Zach Galifinakis,who took the simplistic and turned it into comic gold. It's good enoughjust to see him do that.

Welp, it looks like the dunderheads at the now bankrupt RelativityMedia LLC. Are hell-bent in giving us yet another doozy before theyear's end. What kind of rightfully shelved prattle do they have for usto mull over and regret buying a $10 ticket for this week? A ZachGalifianakis helmed caper comedy about a love-struck loser turnedarmored truck robber co-starring Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and OwenWilson? That doesn't seem so bad.

Well it gets bad folks, real bad. The kind of bad that gives even themost forgiving audience the urge to check their messages beforesneaking into Storks (2016) to "check on the kids." Masterminds is anunholy mix of good ideas and concepts made painfully unfunny due badediting, sloppy storytelling and an over-reliance on the same- old uglyAmerican jokes not funny since Bush was in the White House.

The bang adorned Galifianakis plays David Ghantt, a trailer park doofuswhose job as an armored car driver fills his head with notions of tenseMexican standoffs and Lee Marvin inspired bravado. His regular partnerKelly (Wiig) passively encourages his flights of fancy, joining him atthe shooting range for target practice and openly discussing what she'ddo if she was Phillip Johnson; a Loomis Fargo employee that tried torun off with $18 million. Convinced by Kelly's womanly charms and aheist plan masterminded by Kelly's friend Steve Chambers (Wilson),Ghantt decides to follow directives to steal the cash from the LoomisFargo vault and run off to Mexico for a lovers' rendezvous.

On paper, Masterminds has a decent amount going for it. The movie'sstory attracted quite a few members of SNL's (1975-present) presentstar lineup including Kate McKinnon as Ghantt's awkward wife, LeslieJones as the fussy lead FBI investigator and Jason Sudeikis as afrightfully obtuse hit-man. The film is directed by Jared Hess the manresponsible for bringing deadpan anti-humor into the mainstream withNapoleon Dynamite (2004)…so clap if you're into that. Mix inGalifianakis's personal brand of cringe-antics and Owen Wilson'sinference to his character in Bottle Rocket (1996) and you got yourselfquite a lot to root for.

Unfortunately, this film is much like a foul smelling casserole madewith biscuits, Funions and eight-year-old Velvetta; individually eachcomponent sounds appetizing enough but clumping all these thingstogether creates a slurry of colon clogging flotsam. The stranger thanfiction tale of the Loomis Fargo robbery could have been, should havebeen a movie about class dispossession. Lacking that, it could havescored some points simply by dialing up the wacky. Yet Hess's inabilityto graduate his images from weird to laugh-inducing, mutes the goodstuff from hitting its frequency. Nowhere is this more clear than whenGalifianakis dons bad disguise after bad disguise in order to blend in.

Everyone in this film shamelessly acts out their best Joe Dirt (2001)impression, likely enjoying each other's company to the detriment ofthe audience. In so doing, they come up no funny lines or endeavor tomake their characters anything more than poorly defined caricatures.The film then pads the narrative's plot-points to the brink; insuringwhatever tiny morsels manage to get a giggle remain few and farbetween. By the time the robbery takes place (a mire half-hour into thefilm), all humor has ceased and all opportunities for humor have longchoked on the lack of oxygen,

In a confounding moment of stupidity, Ghantt fumbles into the back ofhis armored truck and locks himself in, just as he's getting ready toleave. Seeing Ghantt panic and struggle to breathe at that moment is inmany ways the perfect metaphor for this film. Clustered, confused,angry with himself and shambling to find the gears in the nextcompartment, Ghantt, like the audience feels stuck in a situation thatshould have never happened. This movie should have never happened.

Stories about stupid criminals are funny. And when those stories aretrue, besides laughing, we find ourselves shaking our heads in mockingdisbelief. Just think about how many times you've read such stories inan Email or heard them on the radio or on TV and how amused you werepicturing what was being described. Well, "Masterminds" (PG-13, 1:34)brings us a true story of stupid criminals in vivid detail – helpedalong by some of the funniest actors in movies today – including a few"Saturday Night Live" veterans. This ensemble comedically dramatizesthe true story of a 1997 North Carolina Loomis Fargo robbery, whichremains one of the biggest heists in U.S. history. Although the scriptby Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer and Emily Spivey, along with thedirection of Jared Hess ("Napoleon Dynamite", "Nacho Libre") and thecomic stylings of the talented cast, adds a significant amount of humorto the action, the film's story and many of its details stick veryclose to the facts of the case.

David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) is a clumsy and socially awkward, butbasically honest and well-meaning armored car driver in Charlotte,North Carolina. He is engaged to the even more awkward andself-centered trailer park dwelling Jandice (played with a sort ofcatatonic glee by SNL's Kate McKinnon), but David has fallen for hisfellow driver, Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig). Kelly lives (also in amobile home) with an old friend named Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson) andhis wife, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Ellis). When Steve hears on the newsabout a recent Loomis Fargo robbery, he hatches a scheme to use Kelly'sconnection to David to get him to rob Charlotte's Loomis Fargo. Kellyis reluctant to play on David's affections, but she'd love to get ashare of that money and David is tempted by the promise of a new lifewith Kelly down in Mexico. After Kelly "trains" David for the thingsthat he'll have to do to commit the robbery (and how to possibly "liveoff the land" until it's "safe" for Kelly to join him in Mexico), andwith the help of a few other down-on-their-luck (and none-too-bright)co-conspirators, the plan is all set.

Let the comedic missteps begin! David is a trusted employee with keysto a Loomis Fargo vault, which he accesses after hours. In spite of hisnatural clumsiness and lack of logical thinking, David somehow managesto load a van with a fortune in bundled bills and gets the vehicle tohis fellow criminals waiting outside. They stash the cash, giving Davida few thousand dollars (stuffed into his underwear) for his flight toMexico, where he thinks that he'll soon be reunited with Kelly. Back inNorth Carolina, an FBI agent (played by SNL's Leslie Jones) knows thatDavid did the deed and she's working hard to piece together the rest ofthe puzzle. Steve gets nervous and decides to take out a contract onDavid, hiring an old friend turned hit man, Mike McKinney (JasonSudeikis) for the job. Mike turns out to be a pretty unhinged hit manand his trip to Mexico in search of David ends up being a comedy oferrors. David eventually figures out that he's the patsy and does hisbest to turn the tables on his partners in crime.

"Masterminds" is a hilarious send-up of that real-life heist from thelate 90s. And not all comedies that depict real-life stupid criminalsdo the job this well. (See 2013's unfunny "Pain & Gain". And by "see",I mean as an example. Don't actually watch the movie.) This script'senhancements to the true story make for good plotting and make greatuse of the cast's significant and diverse comedic talents. The humorcomes from a combination of the colorful characters' personalitytraits, Galifianakis' talent for slapstick, some gross-out humor and alot of good old fashioned stupid criminal mistakes. The movie neveroversells its characters or its humor, even actually keeping somemoments too low-key. Not all the jokes work, but there are plenty ofgreat sight gags and other laugh-out-loud moments that make this movieexactly what such cinematic experiences are supposed to be – fun. "A-"
