Owen Wilson

Plot:

A guard at an armored car company in the Southern U.S. organizes one of the biggest bank heists in American history. Based on the October 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery.

Review:

Hilarious! Oh my this is what I was hoping for when I watched Keeping Up with the Joneses, and while every scene with Zach Galifianakis in it was funny the other moments in that movie weren’t as much. Not so with Masterminds. Zach’s hair alone in this thing was a ton of laughs.

Great movie, very funny, highly recommend.

Rebel Wilson

Plot:

Larry spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.

Review:

Movie ended on a sad note and not just because watching it I remembered how much I miss Robin Williams. What if I don’t want Larry, Ben Stiller, to move on with his life? What if I want him to be a night security guard for the rest of his days? Sure, I guess, they could do another with Rebel Wilson, but, no offense to her, it would not be the same.

Not sure why I reacted to the ending like I did because I’ve never been a huge fan of the movies. They’re cute and a nice little way to spend some time, which is all you need sometimes.

Anyway, the story was fine, a little contrived, they jumped forward on some things quickly. Mainly the relationship between Larry and his son, but it was a lot to cram into one movie. Lancelot actually made a joke about that and how it’s not how quests are done.

I liked the movie and if you’re looking for something on in the background it would be a good choice.

3/5
