When an old-school bar owner and his unruly daughter get caught up in a cat-and-mouse game of corporate espionage, it will take brains, brawn and help from the lesser of two evils to make it out alive.
A story about the illusion of being someone else, about acting but also putting up an act, the masks we sometime wear in front of others - and about the rare moments when the masks fall off, leaving space for honesty and true feelings.
Raph and Max only kill bad guys, and only after their boss Sam, a high-powered attorney, has cashed a nice paycheck for getting her sleazy clients off the hook. When Sam sends our heroes on a routine hit, they find themselves caught up in a conspiracy they never imagined. But whatever trouble they've gotten themselves into is nothing compared to the wrath of Raph's wife if he doesn't make it home in time for his son's birthday party. Being a good hit man is tough; being a good dad is killer!Written by
Even now a few hours later, I'm still not sure what to give this movie. I went into it expecting it only to be stupid and ridiculous, because what else is a movie starring one-third of Head Cheese (Head counts as as third!) going to be? But it was far more ridiculous than even I expected.
But in a stupidly, goofy, surprisingly entertaining way.
Don't get me wrong; this isn't a "good" movie. The acting is . . . well, it stars Al Snow. The dialogue, man, the dialogue. It's something. Something that you can easily imagine the two writers being high as heck and laughing their butts off as they write it (though I give credit; there are some very clever lines scattered about). The IMDb estimate for the budget is $5,000 (yes, thousand). And that shows.
But damn if Al doesn't do his damnedest to bring his domestic yet shadily employed character to life, and John Wells and his engaging smile delivers some of the cheesiest, stupidest freaking jokes and inappropriate laughter with a sociopath's sincerity and charm that's hard to resist
You know those movies that people say "You just have to turn your brain off for a little while" about? The kind of B-movie that's so bad, it's ultimately good? *This* is exactly that kind of movie. Just sit back and let the only slightly above "Beavis and Butthead" humor wash over you like a (insert favorite metaphor here).
Okay, since I rate movies not based on their quality, but on how much I enjoyed them, then I guess I've got to give "Overtime" a 7/10. Because stupid as it is, I laughed my ass off through the entire thing. Sometimes at that stuff they wanted me to laugh at, sometimes not, but it was all good. In fact, of all the B-movies I've watched over the last year, this is either the best, or at least tied with (I can't believe I'm saying this) "Sharknado" (yes, I laughed my ass off through that one).
Give it a shot. If you're inclined to drink or indulge in some of the Reefer Madness, you might do that before and during the film.
