Not worth your time

Author: anaroth1616 from United States

This movie is not worth the time and aggravation that comes with watching it. Jimmy Fallon's considerable talents are not enough to overcome this weak script and poor direction. It is painful to watch, worse that the worst SNL skits you've ever seen. This obviously wasn't a theater movie and it's not one to watch on video or DVD either. The commentary at the end is the only real joke, Duncan Foster is an unknown for good reason. I have to wonder if Jimmy was wanting for cash when he said yes to this flop. That said, if you are an ultimate Fallon fan you may be able to find something entertaining, but I can not begin to guess where. Some movies are so bad that they are good, but this is not one of them. If there was anything to this story it seems to have been destroyed in the editing process.

I am a huge Jimmy Fallon fan and had no idea this movie even existed until I went to rent a movie yesterday. After watching it I know why. "The Scheme" is without a doubt the worst film I have ever scene. (Sorry "Dr. T. and the Women," you've been replaced.)

The premise is excellent, the problem is no one really ran with it. It feels like a quarter of the way through the movie someone gave up. The characters are barely developed, which in comedy is sometimes okay so long as they are funny. Not the case here.

All actors are entitled to a bad movie now and again, right?...Anyone?

God Awful

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my whole entire life. I have seen some pretty bad movies, but this takes the cake. Just watching the first five minutes of this movie I wanted to shoot myself in the head, and remove my eyeballs. I mean the guy drops a baby doll to steal some mail. After that he goes on to saying "What we did back there didn't make any sense" Damn right that didn't make sense, the whole movie doesn't make sense. The worst movie EVER! Worse than GIGLI! There I said it.

OK, that was really stupid!

This film is a complete crap that hasn't a single thing in favor. OK, maybe just one: It's Andie Tecec! I'm talking about the woman, not the actress. She's hot but as an actress she's as lame as any other thing in this movie!

It's a completely ridiculous movie: tremendous stupid plot, bad characters, bad actors, hilariously bad screenplay and totally unfunny "supposed to be funny" moments.

Now that I have finished watching it I just wonder why I didn't have looked at this movie's IMDb rate… I guess it would have saved me one hour and half of a bad cinematic experience!

Well, it's a complete 0 out of 10, but I've to score it 1/10, right??!!

Scheme didnt have much steam

This movie overall was not all that great, it did however have some high points. Some funny bits, and lines throughout it, moderate acting. Although in the end you felt empty and depleted, would not rent this one on my own nickle, but if someone else was paying I might watch it again.

Well... This movie is definitely far from good, but it still isn't all that bad either. OK, I lied... it really is. But even though it's still pretty bad, it's still amusing to watch some how. Maybe it's because you're able to forgive it because Jimmy Fallon is in it, who knows. I still kept on watching it for some reason. About half way through I was going to turn it off because it wasn't really going anywhere, but then it took a turn for the better. It started getting sexy. It's the only thing that kept me watching. Those very lovely sexy scenes of either Jimmy kissing, or Jimmy shagging. Hell, my opinion... It should have just been a porno.

I know, alot of people think this movie sucked. But I liked it. And not just because I got too see my hero in a towel! It's a movie, and it entertained me! That's all there is to it! I'm not expecting some Oscar worthy stuff (which by the way, the things that win Oscar's these days suck), just some good laughs, which it did deliver. I love this movie! It's great to see Jimmy Fallon as the lead. And the cast chemistry was fabulous! I wish they would get together and film another flick together.
