While procrastinating for their mid-terms, three friends, attending college in New Orleans, haphazardly plan an inside robbery of the business where Daphne works, a gourmet cheese shop. Daphne, who outwardly appears the sweet girl-next-door, is certainly far from it. Daphne is entrusted with the nightly closing the Cheese Shop, and occasionally, during idle time at work, she fantasizes about robbing the place. When she inadvertently presents her fantasy to her guy friends, (Alex, who has an open crush on Daphne, and Vance, who once consummated a crush with Daphne), they rush aboard. That night, they decide to 'case' the Cheese Shop. After some brainstorming, they construct a foolproof plan. Alex and Vance will stop by the Cheese Shop, while Daphne closes the shop solo. Then, they will over-power and lock her in the bathroom. The money set aside for the night's deposits will be taken, and Daphne will appear to be a victim of armed robbers. They think it's genius. Once alone with Alex, ... Written by Sean Gerowin

Monterey, Cheddar, or Swiss, this is a movie you don't want to miss!
25 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Written and directed by New Orleans filmmaker Sean Gerowin, "Let's Rob the Cheese Shop" is the story of three college students and their foolproof plan to take mad cheddar from a local muenster merchant.

Along the way, however, things don't go exactly as planned.

The movie starts by introducing us to college buddies Alex and Vance. Alex is the square, buttoned-up nice guy and Vance is the outgoing, slackerific ladies man, albeit with a bit of a drug problem. To be honest, Vance reminded me of a cross between Jay from the Kevin Smith movies and Jim Morrison of The Doors. He also reminded me of a few friends I've had through the years – minus the coke habit.

Like most college students, Alex, Vance, and their friend Daphne are broke. Apparently between the three of them, they have just enough money to buy Bonnaroo tickets. Unfortunately, only one of them has a job. So, again like most college students, they start brainstorming on how to make some quick cash. Although they first consider robbing a bank, the idea is quickly tossed aside for a more practical notion: to rob Daphne's workplace – the local cheese shop.

With everyone finally on board, the three friends begin to calculate and contemplate, hypothesize and strategize, and dream and scheme how to make the plan a success. Of course, they don't consider what would happen if they got busted, or if Daphne lost her job (which she is shown to be not very good at, by the way), but such is the innocence of youth.

Speaking of innocence (or lack thereof), while the friends are contriving their nefarious plot, we learn that Vance and Daphne used to be lovers and now Alex has a crush on Daphne. This sets off a continuous backstory of love, lust, and why girls don't like "nice guys".

Slowly but surely the scheme starts to disintegrate. Some people get cold feet, some people start thinking with their heart instead of their brain, and still others choke down handfuls of random pills, making them completely useless as a potential accomplice.

Before the plan goes completely up in smoke, however, Vance meets the woman of his dreams. And she is not the kind of woman to keep him on the straight and narrow either. Quite the opposite. She is the cowgirl from Hades and just the inspiration Vance needs to dust off the friends' scheme and attempt to be Clyde to his new love's Bonnie.

Will he succeed? Will the cheese shop be robbed? Will Alex get lucky? For the answer, you have to see the movie.

Overall, I really enjoyed "Let's Rob the Cheese Shop". It's a fun movie that definitely brought back memories of wild and crazy college days. There is no doubt "Let's Rob the Cheese Shop" lives up to its claim of containing "a fair amount of Sex, Drugs, & Cheese". It was definitely funny, although some of the humor was very subtle – like when Alex attempts to get close to Daphne and she repeatedly slides away. Finally, as the movie was filmed in New Orleans, there is plenty of good music and, of course, lots of drinking.
