The Three Stooges in an Awful, Unrealistic, Moronic and illogical Movie
After a party in the company, David Hargrove (Brian Geraghty) gives a ride home to his colleagues Emily Brandt (Alice Eve) and Corey Thompson (Josh Peck). Corey decides to have dinner and they go to an isolated ATM to withdraw cash. Soon they are threatened by an unknown man (Mike O'Brian) and they become trapped in the ATM trying to survive.
"ATM" is among the worst movies that I have seen with an awful, unrealistic, moronic and illogical plot, characters and plot point. The stupidity begins with David that has a crush on Emily, but he is shy. When he finally has the chance to drive her home, the douchebag Corey asks him to take him home instead of taking a taxi. Therefore, the douche is not a real friend of David, messing up David's flirtation with his dream girl, and David is a sucker, losing the chance to stay alone with Emily. Corey decides to eat a pizza in a location in the United States of America that does not accept credit card. I do not live in this country but I have never had trouble in using credit card in this country. Then they see a stranger menacing them. In my country, ATMs have a hot line direct to the central of the bank to report problems, but I do not know how it works in the United States of America if client has a problem. The trio never runs at the same time, each one to one different direction, instead of doing what they do. When David and Emily finally run out of the ATM, they bring the wounded Corey back to the insecure ATM chamber. The stupid situations go on along 90 minutes running time. But the plot point, with David becoming the prime suspect of the murders, is laughable. My vote is two.
Title (Brazil): "Armadilha" ("Trap")
