Plot: A guard at an armored car company in the Southern U.S. organizes one of the biggest bank heists in American history. Based on the October 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery. Runtime: 95 mins Release Date: 30 Sep 2016
I have watched 1000s of movies in recent years. I have not reviewed a single one. I had to review this title. I was shocked that this movie generated a 5.7 average. I have not laughed so hard in ages. It is not a super-smart type of humor, but gets the job done. If you're not super uptight you will love this movie. Truly a gem in the comedy genre as I have stopped watching comedies due to the stupidity of the humor. Here, it's not overdone. While sometimes childish, still executed with taste. Being based on a true story is what initially sold the movie; however, I believe the real <more>
heist was just an inspiration for the movie. Therefore, do not expect a true story feel to this movie, just a laugh out loud comedy.
Yeah there's not much to say about this movie, its just funny and thats it, but for review sake, we have to address 10 lines of comments, so ill guess i will just say that the comedy from this movie has a really good edge, some time you make fun of some type of person in a movie, or make many jokes about different subjects or things, but in this movie, but this film is another concept i have never seen before, and i don't know how to name it, but its seems to me that is one big gigantic joke the movie about white folk, and is different from any other film because is really specific, <more>
and that is pretty cool, its very entertaining and nice to watch, i laughed a couple of times and i usually don't laugh that easy, so i have to say, it was a good movie. byee yall.
Trademark Hess humor is there... (by frank-437-318947)
Often referenced as "the director of Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre" with no mention of the under-appreciated "Gentlemen Broncos" and "Don Verdean" , Jared Hess never fails to entertain.Even more exciting about "Masterminds" was the notice of Hubbel Palmer Actor, "Sasquatch Gang" & actor/director, "Humble Pie" as co-writer.The subtle southern colloquialisms stuck out the most to me. A few of these characters would have been folks I grew up around in the south.Characters were all well-acted. I was a little apprehensive about <more>
the big-name lineup, but everyone delivered. Zach Galifianakis played a highly-likable and hilariously-caricatured David Ghantt. The folks in our viewing party agreed Jason Sudeikis' hit-man character was a stand-out, and we certainly could've seen more of Kate McKinnon.As far as objectionable content, there is more profanity than normal for a Hess film, BUT it's mild by comparison to most any other PG-13 film. Handful of h*lls, d*mns, a**, etc. The jokes may not be crude enough or otherwise too dry / understated for standard audience members to really appreciate. But hopefully it receives enough support to keep Jared Hess and Co. churning out these kinds of films. Sidenote: Check out "Austenland" by Jerusha Hess. Also excellent.
Funny movie, Worth the Matinée Ticket price. (by KATO-SUBZERO)
15 October 2016: Masterminds is a good funny movie, once again proving that a comedy movie can be funny without all the hard core profanity cursing in a movie. Greek American actor, Zack Galifianakis is great with all the Abbott & Costello gags. Actress, Kristen Wiig is funny, talented, sexy and cute. Owen Wilson always stands out and does a good comedy performance. The rest of the cast is ho hum boring.This movie is on the comedy movie lines of "Airplane", "Naked Gun", "Paul Blart". All of them are great movies, funny and proof is Not a lot of unnecessary <more>
cursing is needed to be a successful movie.For good clean fun that little kids can also watch, I recommend seeing this movie for a good laugh.
I saw the list of cast members and knew this was one I was going to see. Then I read a negative review in a publication and had second thoughts. How often a crew of gifted performers goes to waste with a bad tale. In the end, given the cast, I went. Glad I followed my instincts. The movie is based on an actual event too. If you don't know these people then maybe you'll won't relate to this script. However, these characters are the kind of screw-ups that do exist and their quirks and foibles are perfectly captured in Masterminds. In a time where there is so much to bring us down, a <more>
good laugh is golden. Shortly into this one I laughed out loud and was not alone. This is truly an ensemble cast that knows when to be subtle and when to pull out the stops. I think of the photos of customers from a certain discount store that circle the web and can picture them shopping there. And more internet photos come to mind when two of these characters pose for the hokiest of engagement shots. Truth is stranger than fiction and funnier too. A simple, hapless guy with a low paying job, is letting life roll along without any effort to consciously redirect it. Suddenly the prospect of romance, an adventure, and a life changing scheme come along. The scheme is cooked up by a greedy, manipulative stranger who sees a chance for some easy money. How this plot unravels is an enjoyable roller coaster ride to the end. I hope this cast will do another comedy, and soon!
A hysterical movie, that is way better than the critics say it is. (by Anurag-Shetty)
Masterminds is a biopic about David Ghantt Zach Galifianakis . It talks about how Ghantt being a guard at Loomis Fargo, robbed the company of 17 million dollars. To execute this robbery, Ghantt takes the help of Kelly Kristen Wiig , Steve Owen Wilson , Runny Devin Ratray & Eric Ross Kimball . This movie chronicles all the events that take place before, during & after one of the most famous bank heists in American history. Masterminds is a film, that will make you laugh-out-loud constantly. Director Jared Hess has masterfully brought this true story, to the big screen. It's <more>
amazing, that this outrageously funny story, happened in real life. Obviously, the makers of the movie, would have exaggerated certain details. One thing I didn't like about the film, is the use of potty humor in some instances. The highlight of the movie, is the cast. This film has some of the best comedic talent in Hollywood. Zach Galifianakis is outstanding as David Ghantt. Galifianakis brings his trademark humor to his character but, also shows the subtle & vulnerable side of Ghantt. Kristen Wiig is brilliant as Kelly. Owen Wilson is great as Steve. Jason Sudeikis is awesome as Mike McKinney. Kate McKinnon is fantastic as Jandice. Leslie Jones is excellent as the Detective. Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Ken Marino, Devin Ratray, Jon Daly & Ross Kimball are good as Michelle, Doug, Runny, the other Detective & Eric, respectively. Masterminds is a must watch, for all Zach Galifianakis fans. Go, laugh until your sides hurt!
I loved it! I haven't laughed this much since Due Date with Robert Downey Jr; in fact I laughed even more during this. I read some very negative reviews on here about this and all I can say is that if you don't have a sense of humour for slapstick comedy then don't leave a negative review because of it.An innocent guy working as a security van driver gets talked into robbing the company he works for by an attractive ex-employee that he has a real crush on. He thinks they're going to be living together, happily-ever-after, once all the heat has settled, but things don't <more>
quite go to his plan.There are so many hilarious moments in this film and the rest is all pretty humorous, as well. It's comedically brilliant, fast paced, intelligently written and an all-round good film. Not a dull moment. Give it a go and DO NOT listen to any "meh, so-so" reviews with less than five stars. One reviewer said it's the same kind of humour as Airplane and Naked Gun. It's not!
more enjoyable than most critics give it credit for (by dave-mcclain)
Stories about stupid criminals are funny. And when those stories are true, besides laughing, we find ourselves shaking our heads in mocking disbelief. Just think about how many times you've read such stories in an Email or heard them on the radio or on TV and how amused you were picturing what was being described. Well, "Masterminds" PG-13, 1:34 brings us a true story of stupid criminals in vivid detail – helped along by some of the funniest actors in movies today – including a few "Saturday Night Live" veterans. This ensemble comedically dramatizes the true <more>
story of a 1997 North Carolina Loomis Fargo robbery, which remains one of the biggest heists in U.S. history. Although the script by Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer and Emily Spivey, along with the direction of Jared Hess "Napoleon Dynamite", "Nacho Libre" and the comic stylings of the talented cast, adds a significant amount of humor to the action, the film's story and many of its details stick very close to the facts of the case.David Ghantt Zach Galifianakis is a clumsy and socially awkward, but basically honest and well-meaning armored car driver in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is engaged to the even more awkward and self-centered trailer park dwelling Jandice played with a sort of catatonic glee by SNL's Kate McKinnon , but David has fallen for his fellow driver, Kelly Campbell Kristen Wiig . Kelly lives also in a mobile home with an old friend named Steve Chambers Owen Wilson and his wife, Michelle Mary Elizabeth Ellis . When Steve hears on the news about a recent Loomis Fargo robbery, he hatches a scheme to use Kelly's connection to David to get him to rob Charlotte's Loomis Fargo. Kelly is reluctant to play on David's affections, but she'd love to get a share of that money and David is tempted by the promise of a new life with Kelly down in Mexico. After Kelly "trains" David for the things that he'll have to do to commit the robbery and how to possibly "live off the land" until it's "safe" for Kelly to join him in Mexico , and with 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 keys to a Loomis Fargo vault, which he accesses after hours. In spite of his natural clumsiness and lack of logical thinking, David somehow manages to load a van with a fortune in bundled bills and gets the vehicle to his fellow criminals waiting outside. They stash the cash, giving David a few thousand dollars stuffed into his underwear for his flight to Mexico, where he thinks that he'll soon be reunited with Kelly. Back in North Carolina, an FBI agent played by SNL's Leslie Jones knows that David did the deed and she's working hard to piece together the rest of the puzzle. Steve gets nervous and decides to take out a contract on David, hiring an old friend turned hit man, Mike McKinney Jason Sudeikis for the job. Mike turns out to be a pretty unhinged hit man and his trip to Mexico in search of David ends up being a comedy of errors. David eventually figures out that he's the patsy and does his best to turn the tables on his partners in crime."Masterminds" is a hilarious send-up of that real-life heist from the late 90s. And not all comedies that depict real-life stupid criminals do 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's enhancements to the true story make for good plotting and make great use of the cast's significant and diverse comedic talents. The humor comes from a combination of the colorful characters' personality traits, Galifianakis' talent for slapstick, some gross-out humor and a lot of good old fashioned stupid criminal mistakes. The movie never oversells its characters or its humor, even actually keeping some moments too low-key. Not all the jokes work, but there are plenty of great sight gags and other laugh-out-loud moments that make this movie exactly what such cinematic experiences are supposed to be – fun. "A-"
Jared Hess's "Masterminds" is the sort of movie that you'll appreciate if you accept low humor. I do. It might be a surprise to learn that the movie is based on a true story the October 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery . I'm sure that a lot of what the movie shows is added for comic relief, and to let the cast members do their stuff. Even so, they lay everything out quite well, as the scheme's main man sets up the armored car driver as a patsy.While Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Kristen Wiig are the top-billed stars, some of the best lines come from Leslie Jones if <more>
she's in a movie, you know that it's gonna be good . As expected, Kate McKinnon and Jason Sudeikis also turn in good performances. Basically, the combination of the heist, the snappy dialogue, and the occasional gross-out humor makes for one funny movie. Betcha never thought that an Enya song would get used this way! It's also gotten noted that three of the four modern Ghostbusters star in this movie. 2016's "Ghostbusters" is a criminally underrated movie. It's hard to believe that there are people who call it one of the worst movies ever while still regarding as masterpieces the obnoxious "Everyone Says I Love You", the vacuous "Eyes Wide Shut", and the pointless "Man on the Moon".
