The story line has great potential but it is not executed very well.Filming was well done but the acting is overdone. Location is variedbut even in Mexico they depict all the actors as bubbling idiots Thefilm depicts everyone as of low intelligence, the bad guys the FBI etc.Humour is stupid, more slapstick and in poor sexual taste than funny.Watching this film I felt that it was an insult to my intelligence.Zach Galifianakis's makeup was not realistic and with his southernaccent it came across as very false. I'm not sure why southerners haveto be depicted all the time as dumb. Owen Wilson was his usual boringself, same role he plays in all movies. If this had been produced withthe some class it could have been very interest

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.

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!
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.
