A comedic adventure that re-imagines Mark Twain's iconic literary characters of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer as grown men in current day. Petty criminal Huck Finn hopes to leave his criminal life behind when he is released from a stint in prison, but his lifelong friend, and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans. Not ready to give up on his childhood fantasies of wealth and adventure, Tom forms the "Band of Robbers," recruiting their misfit friends Joe Harper and Ben Rogers, to join them for an elaborate plan to find a fabled treasure. But the plan soon unravels, thrusting the guys on a wild journey with dangerous consequences...
Matthew Gray Gubler is one of the stars of Criminal Minds, and also sometimes directs episodes. Two of the actors he's directed on the show are his Band of Robbers co-stars Kyle Gallner and Beth Grant. See more »
Sorry to interrupt. My name is Joe. What's your name?
That's pretty interesting man. We got the same name, we're in the same car... that's life I guess, three meals a day and funny moments like these.
You're... you're Injun Joe.
Some people call me that.
Why do they call you that if you're not even native american?
I guess I just identify with the culture and the aesthetic.
Isn't that kind of racist?
How is it racist to want to be more like another race?

Hilarious. Heart felt. Exciting! I love this film because it is not like anything I've watched before! But also the way it is able to make you feel like you are part of the "band". It is a must see in my opinion. Just hilarious, very witty, thrilling! Great directing and great cast! Keeps you on the end of your seat throughout the whole movie! Also has great one liners that will stick with you. I cannot stop raving about this film! It has unexpected twists and turns! I love it love it love it! You can relate to the characters and makes it feel timeless. I cannot wait till it is on DVD to watch it again! I feel like I am just going on about this but if you get the chance to watch it please do! It is original and a gem just like the treasure they are on the hunt for.
