Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig star in ‘Masterminds’.

David Ghantt is stuck in the monotony of driving an armoured truck day in and day out, so when his work crush lures him into the heist of a lifetime, David's all in. Despite a pack of hare-brained bandits and an absurdly flawed plan, David manages to steal $17 million, and promptly hands it over to the gang, who just as promptly double-cross him. Forced to go on the lam, David must dodge the authorities and a hit man, and try to turn the tables on his untrustworthy comrades.

Masterminds is an American crime comedy based on the 1997 Loomis Fargo Robbery in North Carolina. Directed by Jared Hess, the film stars Zach Galifianakis, Academy Award nominees Owen Wilson and Kristen Wiig, and Jason Sudeikis.
