Storyline

In Los Angeles, the gambler Paul Weston is a loser, and owes a lot of money to the dangerous mobster Freddie. When he is brutally beaten and the life of his former wife is threatened by the Freddie, his acquaintance bartender Vinnie sends him to Dr. Charlie Brooks first and then he convinces him to participate of a heist in the jewelry district with the professional thief Gene to raise the necessary money to pay his debt. Meanwhile, the stock market broker Roger Hargitay finds that the company where he works embezzled US$ 5,000,000.00 from their clients and he will be arrested in a couple of days. His boss Ed Koster convinces Roger and two co-workers to participate in an easy robbery of a jewelry planned by an inside man. On Saturday morning, both gangs arrive in the same jewelry for the same heist at the same time. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

The display case in Charlie's office supposedly contains the military awards of her father, who was apparently a U.S. Marine as denoted by the large Marine Corps emblem at the top of the display. However, the case contains two Navy marksmanship medals and a Navy Good Conduct Medal ribbon. These awards are not given to Marines, since the Marine Corps has its own unique marksmanship badges and Good Conduct Medal. See more »

The Bored Fast (2006)
23 February 2016 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

A pretty awful Tarrantino try-hard wannabe flick with poor characterisations and a plot that is supposed to be exciting I suppose that just gets dull due to well pretty much any factor.

The acting is below average, most of the actors are decent usually (with exception of Jessica Simpson's ex-husband Nick Lachey who was equally bad in 'RISE (2007)').

Vera Farmiga is usually one of my favourite actresses but I have no idea why she did this movie, granted she wasn't a household name when the movie was made, which spent years on the shelves before being released straight to DVD in the US (unsurprising I'm sure to those that have seen it) and she can't carry this turd up no matter how hard she tries (even though she doesn't).

It starts with the main players robbing a bank then it goes back into time for the next hour of how this robbery came to be and it is truly a unfascinating story of the same old same old with no true struggles that could be able to gain interest with the viewers.

The movie also flows very badly, the editing is terrible, occasionally fast cut and occasionally few and long single shots in a scene there is no real rhyme or reason to it either, feels very amateurish.

And throw in a bunch of f-bombs that screams of desperation to keep the edge and coolness of the movie, but it fails, as does the movie on all accounts.
