In this action comedy inspired by true events, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite; Nacho Libre), David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) 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 (Kristen Wiig) who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime. Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson) 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 (Jason Sudeikis), and try to turn the tables on the ones he trusted most.



  • Just don't do it 👎

    Terribly bad and the real joke is if you rent or buy it. Sorry but imho it stunk. 😶
  • Hilarious, ignore Rotten Tomatoes

    By Pawtucket Patriots
    I usually agree with Rotten Tomatoes reviews, but they were way too harsh on this movie. If you liked the Hangover, you'll like Masterminds. Give it a chance. You'll be glad you did. I laughed so hard, I cried. I'm a big fan of Kristin Wiig and Zach G. Great comedy
  • Dumb

    By Oksanayoga
    Too dumb to be funny. Not worth the rental fee. Would not watch it again even if it was free.
  • Mastermind

    By Vinstermom
    Waste of time and money.
  • Watch it for the photoshoot alone!

    By WickedChicklette
    Pretty funny movie- the engagement photoshoot was the best thing I've seen in a long time!
  • Mind numbing

    By drinkmehandsome
    I don't write reviews for anything hardly ever. This was right up there with a (recent) Adam Sandler film: An absolute waste of time with actors relying on their names and past successes to sell you this drivel. I'm actually dumber after watching this. MERICA!
  • Ugh

    Was expecting this to be super funny and it was just ok. Wish I would have rented at redbox and not bought it.
  • Blah

    Funny at first then by the end it was really stupid.
  • I'll never trust rotten tomatoes again

    This movie was hilarious. We laughed out loud the whole time. Would definitely buy this movie. It was excellent!
  • Just a funny, silly movie

    By Epptrain
    Once again, don't listen to RT reviews. This movie made me LOL at a few points. Galifinakis and Sudekis steal the show! Owen Wilson and Kristen Wiig have been funnier in other movies. Kate McKinnon is just funny as hell in whatever she does. I was entertained by this movie and don't forget that this is TRUE STORY. This actually happened in 1997 and that to me makes it funnier.
