Don't expect to laugh.
As usual, don't pay attention to the trailer or the fact that this is listed as comedy before drama. This movie was not what I expected at all... in a very good way. This isn't a film about two wise cracking con artists out to get the evil rich guy just because they can. This is a story of a man who lost his daughter and goes on a mission to find God, presumably to get him to explain why she was taken from him. At the same time, twin brother and sister career criminals owe a very bad man a lot of money, and are given the opportunity to con the grieving man and rob him of his fortune. This is all told to you in the first 10 minutes of the movie, which is why I am not marking this as containing spoilers. The unlikely result of this story is a well written, well acted, deep, and at times heart wrenching series of events. Alan Tudyk's performance in particular stands out above the rest for me. I could legitimately feel his pain in every scene. Please understand that I very rarely mark anything above an 8 out of 10, so do not take my rating of 7 to mean this to be mediocre by any means. Just go into this knowing that it's a lot more serious than what you may expect. I had no idea this was even being released; didn't even hear the title or read the description until yesterday, but I'm glad I watched it. Give it a chance, I think you will be too.
