QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: An armored car driver learns he's been double-crossed by those who convinced him to pull off a multi-million dollar heist.
PLOT:
David Ghantt (ZACH GALIFIANAKIS) is an armored car driver who's always dreamed of excitement in his life, such as being a hero during some sort of heist. Instead, he just does the same job day in and day out, all while being dominated by his hyper-intense fiancée, Jandice (KATE McKINNON). He secretly dreams of a romance with his co-worker, Kelly Campbell (KRISTEN WIIG), but when she quits he's heartbroken. That is, until she calls him a few weeks later with the proposition that if he robs the armored car company of millions of dollars, she'll move to Mexico with him.

Of course, she has no intention of doing so, what with being in cahoots with her childhood friend, Steve Chambers (OWEN WILSON), who hatched the idea and is looking to enjoy the spoils of the heist with his wife, Michelle (MARY ELIZABETH ELLIS), all while leaving David high and dry.

When David eventually learns he's been double-crossed, he threatens to turn everyone in, forcing Steve to hire hitman Mike McKinney (JASON SUDEIKIS) to take care of the problem. While that assassin travels across the border to do the job and FBI agent Scanlon (LESLIE JONES) also tries to find the thief, David still holds out hope that Kelly, who's having second thoughts about how they've treated him, will change her mind and join him.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For crude and sexual humor, some language, and violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
