Storyline

David Ghantt discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams. He is an uncomplicated man stuck in a monotonous life. Day in and day out he drives an armored vehicle, transporting millions of other people's money with no escape in sight. The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work crush Kelly Campbell who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime. Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with $17 million in cash...only problem is he foolishly hands the money over to this wild group of double crossers and has been set up to take the fall. With the bandits blowing the millions on lavish and ridiculous luxuries, they leave behind a glaring trail of evidence. Now on the lam and in over his head, David must dodge the authorities, evade a hilarious hit man, Mike McKinney, and try to turn the tables on the ones he trusted most. Written by Relativity

Not that bad. Made me laugh enough to make it worth watching.
8 January 2017 | by spmactSee all my reviews

If you look at just the cast you'll expect more, but it's still not as bad as many make it out to be. It's a good movie for when you just need a good laugh and you don't need the movie to be sophisticated or deep. Did I think it was a particularly good movie? No. Did it make me laugh out loud? Yes, plenty of times. There are a couple gross out humour moments, but not that many. It's mostly just silly jokes.

I wouldn't go to the theatre to see this, but it's a good one to catch on Netflix or something. I don't regret watching it, because I got what I expected out of it: A forgettable movie with a bunch of laughs.

The fact that it was based on a true story (though I'm sure they changed a bunch of details) only makes it more interesting.
