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

When Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is talking to Kate (Dilshad Vadsaria) for the first time, it is mentioned that he doesn't have a Facebook account. Nick states that he is "off the grid". Eisenberg also played Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, in The Social Network (2010). See more »

Why did that engine explode?
Remember that bomb I was telling you about? I kind of typed in the code, reactivated it and put in the back of that guy's van.
What? That's some John McClane shit! Yes!
How did you remember the code?
It doesn't matter. We are alive, and we are rich.

The trailer preview seemed much better than the movie itself. I was rather disappointed. It started off really slow until towards the middle, when things started to pick up. The different camera angles and shots were amazing during the driving scenes; they fit perfectly. Even though I like most of the cast, the casting was still poorly put together for this movie. It was almost mediocre acting. The ending was great, with some last minute laughs, and fun for the imagination. Well accomplished, excluding loose ends, makes this movie better than it would seem. Some scenes I felt were unnecessary, and the entire movie is filled with sex references and poor language. It made me realize how this movie pegged the common language, actions, as well as mannerisms, perfectly for this day and age. It's sad really.
