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 »
When he gets in the car the driver starts a clock for 30 minutes (the pizza is cooked). The 30 minutes should start when the order is placed otherwise the driver could just lie about the time. See more »
Okay, climb through the window.
You climb through the window!
No, I'm holding the bag.
I'm holding the bomb!

This could have been a fun movie...there is a plot, the casting is good...but once again, we have a prime case of screen writers who really aren't. It's as if, in half the movies these days, and this is a perfect example of one, the writers have no clue as to how to write dialogue, so they decide to talk dirty for an hour and a half and call it good. It isn't. It's awful. If this is still the remains of trying for shock value in movies, it doesn't work anymore. It's boring. It's dull. It's repetitive. Viewers don't want shock value. We want entertainment. Somewhere out there in Hollywood land, there have to be writers who can actually write - who have imagination - who have creativity. But, unfortunately, none were hired for this movie. Blah!
