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.

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-"

There's an unwritten rule when it comes to bratpack comedies – Don'texpect much wit. Masterminds has none and that's not even the biggestdownside given the combined comic talent in this film.

With a lineup comprising of Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and JasonSudeikis, it's hard not to recall bratpack comedies like Hall Pass orThe Hangover. Those films were not very witty either but they weresetup to be outrageously funny and they delivered with laugh-out-loudgags. On the other hand, Masterminds has been in production hell for along time and was supposed to be released over a year ago. While thisdoesn't say much about the overall production and budget, it explainswhy there are as many as six writers for the screenplay. That's never agood sign and it shows – jokes are not only a misfire but the repeateduse of toilet humour is a definite indication of lazy writing and poortaste.

It is still interesting to note that this film is based on a real liferobbery. Details of the heist are almost identical including actualnames of the perpetrators, and set in the 90s, this film could haveeven worked as a Martin Scorsese crime caper. Instead, Galifianakis isin the lead as real criminal David Ghantt but resembling Jim Carreyfrom Dumb and Dumber. And as expected, his character is as bright as aflickering lightbulb. Orchestrated by Steve (Wilson as the titularperp), the plan is to con Ghantt into stealing money from the armoredtruck company he works for and have him eliminated in Mexico after thejob. Dubbed the 'Loomis Fargo Bank Robbery' by the FBI, the realincident turned out to be one of the largest cash hauls in the UnitedStates. What happens in the film is a struggle between staying true tothe facts and letting Galifianakis loose.

While most of the film barely serves any real laughs (when not beingcringe worthy awkward), the only reason to recommend Masterminds wouldhave to be cameos from Sudeikis as a psychotic hit-man and KateMcKinnon as Ghantt's psychotic fiancé. Both are show stealers and withthe inclusion of Leslie Jones as a tongue-lashing FBI agent, perhapsthe only saving grace in a crime film disguised as a comedy. Andspeaking of disguise, this film is second to none in imagining what awanted thief must do to evade airport security. Watch and laugh. Orweep.

I am readily able to check my brain at the door for most movies of thisilk. This required a lobotomy that I was not willing to subject myselfto. I watched it for about 20 minutes before I shut it down. I rememberthis story from back in the day. I knew the crooks were stupid but theextent portrayed in this sham was ridiculous! I am Okay with a littleembellishment but I cannot believe these people were THAT stupid. Theidiotic pratfalls and dialogue were beyond stupid. Who would laugh atthese attempts? I would not recommend paying for this, You can streamit but it is still not worth the time. I lost 20 minutes and amthankful I am sick and it wasn't that much of a waste of time!
