What did you think of the movie?
Probably the best part of the movie is that the preview doesn't ruin all the great jokes that the movie has. Nowadays many big films give away the whole plot in the preview, so you aren't even curious to see the movie. The worst offender was the fat movie that told the best parts in the commercial and then fell flat in the actual movie. This movie delivers the humor beyond the clips in the commercial below.
ISo what is the premise of the movie?
Basically this guy that has a boring life as a armored truck driver gets convinced to rob his own company. The motive is strong as he is living this really boring life and getting married to this deadly boring fiance played by Kate McKinnon. Her performance really describes why he decides to elope with the girl Kelly on the heist.
What does Kelly bring to the movie?
Her character is why David, played by Zach Galifianakis, decided to pull the heist. She offers excitement of new love and excitement vs. his boring life with his current fiance. She also is seduced by the heist Mastermind Steve, played by Owen Wilson.
Were there surprise elements?
The surprise is that they actually pull off the heist successfully without getting caught initially, which leaves us with how did they get caught. Basically, David is convinced to lay low in Mexico and is duped out of the money by Steve. One surprise is that David escapes getting killed by the assassin played by Jason Sudeikis. He adds some charm to the film. All in all its for a good, fun film with a host of charming characters that bring this event to life. Another surprise was that JJim Carrey was scheduled to be the lead villain and Zach took over.
