Bi-polar mall security guard Ronnie Barnhardt is called into action to stop a flasher from turning shopper's paradise into his personal peep show. But when Barnhardt can't bring the culprit to justice, a surly police detective is recruited to close the case.
The not so smart Dwayne intends to open a massage parlor with his partner Travis, but he does not have money for the investment. He decides to hire a hit-man to kill his father, The Major, who won a large amount of money in the lottery years ago, but the killer demands US$ 100,000 for the job. Dwayne and Travis kidnap the pizza delivery boy Nick and they dress Nick in a vest with a timer and several bombs. Then Dwayne tells Nick that he has ten hours to rob US$ 100,000 from a bank. Once he does, he would give Nick the code to release the vest. Nick summons his best friend Chet to help him in the heist but the scheme does not work the way Dwayne has plotted. Written by

(At about twenty-four minutes) Dwayne (Danny McBride) references the tagline from Alien (1979), "In space, no one can hear you scream!" McBride is co-starring in Alien: Covenant (2017). See more »
When Nick and Chet are being chased in the Datsun, Nick shifts gears, indicating he is driving a manual transmission car. However, after he shifts and is performing his 180-stunt, a close-up shot shows his feet and there is no clutch. In a manual transmission car, the pedals are close together, and the brake pedal is smaller due to the clutch next to it. See more »
Maybe I should just become a bank robber. I'm pretty good at it. Teachers don't make shit. Bank robbers make bank.

a below average film that seems to not have any effort involved
This film is one of many films that are very similar these days and that just explains why there is hardly any effort put into this film at all. The story sees this average guy Nick who is down on his luck until he is kidnapped by a couple of psychos and forced to commit a crime or else they will blow him up. Now Jesse eisenberg did a decent job here, I do believe there was possibly better people for the role but he did an alright job in the role just don't expect this to be the role where you understand why he is now lex luthor. The supporting cast has its good and bad, Danny McBride plays one of the psychos and he does a good job like he is good at always doing in films like this. Eisenberg's best friend is also good with the duo having good chemistry that carries this film. Other then that though I mean McBride's partner and eisenberg's romance are totally underused and suffer from being ultimately insignificant. The story in this film is just bad, the first 20 mins are terrible with the film being choppy and not deciding where it wanted to go, also plot lines were not detailed enough for you to care at all. The scripts alright with the dialogue being sometimes good but their are other times where it totally sucks and you wonder why you are bothering. The style is so copy and paste with other films like this that it frustrates me, however, there is once scene that is really funny but does not make up for the overall picture. Overall this film is not necessary to see and just stick to a Seth rogen comedy instead.
