Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not What I Expected
29 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

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.
