David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis), about to marry Jandice (Kate McKinnon), is the driver of an armored car who has a crush on Kelly (Kristen Wiig), a co-worker. Incited by a local criminal, Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson), David empties a Charlotte vault and flees to Mexico after delivering some of the money to Chambers. Shortly after, the latter tasks thug Mike McKinney (Jason Sudeikis) with his murder in Mexico. Feeling the object of a betrayal, David seeks revenge by returning to the United States.
The director of the curious “Napoleon Dynamite”, Jared Hess, turned a true story of robbery, betrayal and revenge into a farce and caricature with clumsy antihero geek, femme fatale and ordinary citizen in extraordinary situations.
My life is a routine, a sad monotony, and I want adventures, fantasize about a robbery while I work, be like Agent Flint / James Coburn, acrobatic kicks like Jean-Claude Van Damme … Well take adventures. As in “Napoleon Dynamite”, Hess places us in a setting of timeless aesthetics, a colorful mix between the 70s and 80s, bringing together a singular supposedly funny couple who end up in criminal trouble.
The film, like “caper comedy” with messages of redemption and guilt, has very little grace, both in its pretensions of absurdity and in the use of slapstick or thick adolescent humor, subordinating its poor plot to the “sympathetic” exploitation of its characterizations. Well… at least it’s dynamic, and it doesn’t take too long.
