What a waste of time.
15 August 2018 | by See all my reviews

There is absolutely nothing interesting, special, cool, artsy etc. about this film. These are 4 of the dumbest people on the planet. A movie about 4 truly idiotic spoiled brats planning a heist, totally botching it and then getting caught?! WOW!! Groundbreaking I tell ya!! Hey, I know, lets commit the crime without disguises and use our parents car... THEN, take our stolen goods, not wear disguises again, drive our own vehicles again, use our actual phone numbers and the same email addresses, get an actual appraisal in a room full of cameras and we're golden! On and on and on... one dumb thing after the next. This sort of crime happens on a daily basis. And only 7 years in federal prison?!!!! Please... What a waste of time and money. NEXT.
