Napoleon Dynamite (which was his first film). Now let’s see what this movie which has an ensemble cast, has in store for us.


Zach Galifianakis is a driver of armored trucks and he keeps money in them. This he does to safeguard the money. And the movie progresses with Galifianakis on the verge of getting hitched to McKinnon who doesn’t believe in marriage but relents to marry the former since nobody else would prefer him. And then Wig and Wilson enters her life and makes use of her to involve Galifianakis in a heist. Well, Galifianakis do lot more stealing and is in the constant watch of an FBI agent Jones and Jason Sudeikis. Sudeikis is a hitman. Watch the movie to know how it unravels the twists and turns.

Star Performances

As the man who wants something exciting in life Galifianakis performs quite well. He is seen in rumpled beard. Kristen Wiig does a wonderful job and expresses well. Kate McKinnon has done a neat job.


Though the movie has a good cast and had come with quite a lot of expectations it doesn’t have the sufficient charm to attract us. The movie seems to have drawn inspiration from a real crime happening: the Loomis Fargo robbery of 1997. During that juncture it was one of the biggest cash robberies done in US.

What’s there?

The characters are dressed up in weird costumes and this reflects the innocent humour streak of the director.

What’s not there?

  • Some of the scenes make us wonder whether the guys are really masterminds; their acts have some clues leaving behind.
  • Sometimes we get confused as to what genre the movie belongs; a farce comedy or an engrossing crime thriller.


You can watch this movie if you have nothing much to do in the weekend.
