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.

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.
