David Ghantt finds no enjoyment in what he does: he takes other people's money from place to place, day after day, with no end in sight. The only thing that keeps his life buoyant is his work crush Kelly Campbell. One day, Campbell offers him a world of excitement when she tells him of a scheme of a lifetime. Ghantt and a bunch of half-whit criminals are led by Steve Chambers on a horribly hatched plan. Ghantt somehow pulls off the heist and scores $17 million dollars. And then hands it over to the idiot criminals who double cross him. The group leaves a trail of money as they blow the cash left and right. With hitman Mike McKinney on his tail, and the cops not far behind, he has to find a way to get the money back.

about the movie

Masterminds was released in 2016. This American comedy film was directed by Jared Hess. The script was written by Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer, and Emily Spivey. The film was based on actual events of October 1997 Loomis Fargo Robbery in North Carolina. The film features the acting talent of Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Jason Sudeikis. The film was released by Relativity Media. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a mere 4.6/10 and has said 'Mastermind's great cast and stranger-than-fiction true story are largely wasted on a scattershot comedy with a handful of funny moments and far too much wackiness.' With a budget of $25 million, the film brought in a mere $30 million.
