Quotes

Betty Shin: Who goes? Jeffrey's fucked.
Ben McGewen: One of us.
Jake Nealson: I'll go. I know the explosives.
Betty Shin: Guess again. You're too heavy. Jeffrey only had that cord set for 350 pounds.
Jake Nealson: Well, you go, then.
Betty Shin: Someone's got to track the alarms. I stay with my laptop, pal.
Scott: I can do it.
Ben McGewen: No offense, but when this makes the books as the most fucked-up bank job in history for all the mistakes that I did make, I don't want to be credited with sending the Chow-Wang food guy in to blow the safe.

Stark Raving Awesome!!!!
7 April 2007 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I literally just finished watching this film and to say that I was impressed is an understatement. This film is good, really good. It obviously has its flaws and some of the plot lines contained in the film are a little strange but overall the film works. The film follows Ben McGewen (Scott) and his band of thieves as they try to break into a bank vault through the wall of a night club where McGewen works. Over the course of the film, villains, the police and many other funny incidents are introduced to the audience and they all provide comedy and substance to the movie. There are several things in this film which must be applauded. First, Scott's performance is spot on and shows he can do characters outside of the Stifmeister. The supporting cast are also very good. However, what is truly great about this film, apart from the editing and direction, is the plot. Drew Daywalt and David Schneider (writers and directors) manage to create an environment where the audience are sitting on the edge of their seat waiting for the next bizarre occurrence to get in the way of the job. Sure, the conclusion is done well, but its the actually story that makes this film worth watching. Im surprised this film went straight to video and I hope that more people see it, if not for the immortal lines: Scott: So what are you doing now? Jeffrey Jay: I rob banks. Scott: What you doing here then? Jeffrey Jay: Robbing a bank. Brilliantly acted, directed and with a very suitable musical score I give this film an easy 8 out of 10.
