      Audience Member Enjoyable but too messy to consider anything that good 2.7 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/03/23 Full Review colin m Not interesting enough. Lacked reality. Flawed in multiple ways. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review victor o I have seen this movie around whenever I am on the internet looking for something to watch. In this case, I saw it for Seann William Scott and Monet Mazur. Two fun talents that I have seen around, and I wanted to check this out. It is about a young man named Ben wanting to pull a job robbing a bank that just happens to be next door to the club he works. Seann William Scott plays this role with a strange combination of comedy as well as drama as this role as well as this movie feels like Oceans 11 but with a raucous club scene. Although things do not go smoothly as Ben deals with problems with his bosses, the one who owns the club and the crime lord that contracted the job. This as well as his crew having these problems and the antics of the club. I did not expect it to be this good, I spent half the time roaring with laughter. But the drama is also particularly good when it is revealed the robbery is a cover for something else. This was a nice surprise and one that I am glad I watched. I just wish it were better how they treated Monet Mazur, basically her character was wasted. Seann William Scott can deliver a good performance, and this was a fine example. Good movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Great film, great cast, as addictive as the fast and the furious. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Spoiler filled review Bank Robbers come in many different shapes and sizes. Attitudes, Personalities and even Seann William Scott styles. Keep this in mind. The beginning scene had me into this movie from the get go. I mean, anyone that flips off a wild-eyed lion to his face has the respect of me to give them my attention for at least 30 minutes. This movie is what would happen to Ferris Bueller if he had gone down the wrong path and became a bank Robber. There are any similarities between the two movies. Obviously Ben (Seann William Scott) would be playing Ferris. The man with all the answers. Constantly talking to the audience in a fashion that made me want to smack the remote out of his hand and yell out â??Stop pausing the movie! And stop talkingâ??!!â??. Playing the part of Cameron is no other than the lousy sidekick Ricky (Timm Sharp). Loser-ville is where he resides but in great fashion comes through one time in an awesome speech that reveals a â??Title Drop!â?? Who was Ferrisâ??s arch nemesis? Principal Rooney. Played by the part by Gregory (Lou Diamond Phillips). Always into Benâ??s business and never trusting what he is saying. Yeah, itâ??s a stretch but hey Iâ??m trying to make a connection here! Wait, go back to Gregory. Oh, Lou Diamond Phillips why did you agree to this part? I thought he looked ridiculous and I never bought the fact he was a bad guy. Was he supposed to be asian? It just came off crummy. I think it was the white wig of intimidation. With any bank robber movie you gotta have good crew. Kinda like The Movie Crew â?¢ but with less drugs, Epilepsy, and Asian-ness. The introduction to these characters drove me crazy. Again with the Remote Ben! Give it! I thought they all fit together pretty chaotically well. I was trying to figure out what the nerdy Jeffrey (Patrick Breen) had to bring to the table and I was rightâ?¦ Not much. I swear this guy could play the part of the Taxi-Robot from the original Total Recall movie. â??Next Stop, Straight to DVD!â??. Jake reminded of someone who would show up In a Kevin Smith movie. I donâ??t know if it was the acting or the weed but that was my impression. Betty was a Margaret Cho character that didnâ??t have the â??funnyâ?? of you guessed it, Margaret Cho. Put them together with a dash of Chinese Delivery Guy and you got a pretty decent group. Even though real life would have eaten their lunch, weâ??re talking movies here. Most of everything I took with a grain of salt. Everything except for 2 FBI agents taking down 2 crime gangs that were having a stand down. It just didnâ??t seem believable. Maybe because the old â??Kids In The Hallâ?? star Dave Foley was acting like an FBI agent? Or maybe it was just me. I didnâ??t buy it. The movie ends with a style that heavily reminded me of â??Risky Businessâ?? for some reason. I think it was the whole Narration over the stylized music and the relieving feeling of â??everythingâ??s gonna be all rightâ??. But mostly it had to be the music. Speaking of the soundtrackâ?¦ Iâ??m not a fan of club music but in this movie the music played a part in the storyline making the music play an important role. When the movie is finished it all comes down to whether I liked it or not. There wasnâ??t anything special about this movie. I never laughed out loud but I did chuckle to myself a couple of times. There were some funny moments but they were subtle and I really donâ??t know if it was on purpose. It had Nothing great, and nothing horrible. Although It had an ending Iâ??m fine with, I couldnâ??t help but feel that it was thrown together or rushed to a finish. It wouldnâ??t be a bad thing to watch this if it was given to youâ?¦ or watched it streaming on Netflix like I did. Comic Book Movie Bonus: Patrick Breen: Men In Black. Not much of a bonus but hey you get what you get! Nudity Bonus: Natassia Malthe - Stacie (17:00)(A) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Personally loved the movie. I thought it was clever and unique. for a movie most have never heard of it is a good watch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
