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.

    I cannot in good conscience recommend watching Masterminds. Likewise I can’t not recommend watching Masterminds.
  • No, just no

    The names made me rent it, but it truly was a waste of time.
  • Poor Reviews, Still Really Funny

    By Code Red1980
    Contrary to people and Rotten Tomatoes reviews, this movie got plenty of laughs from me. Critics, for whatever reason, pick apart these comedies because they are looking for something fresh. It doesn't mean it's not funny! This was a very typical Galifinakis movie. Great charachter for him to play. I wouldn't put this as funnier than Hangover, but funnier than Hangover 2 & 3. It's worth a watch. I rented it twice in 2 months because there are some hilarious parts in it. Sorry to those who hated this movie but i needed a laugh and I got one from this.
  • Fun time for the family

    By JimmyMonkeyBrains
    I'm always looking for a goofy movie for the family pizza night, and usually they're way over the top taking themselves too seriously, or pushing some agenda. So it was just fun to sit and have a laugh.
  • Just don't do it 👎

    By Gamer holdem
    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
