Jazzy & I couldn't make it past the first 30 minutes of the film.
I saw the cast and I thought, "Wow this is a pretty decent lineup of actors & actress. This oughta be pretty funny." That's when the first red flag popped up in my head: "With such a good cast, I wonder why I've never heard of this?" And then, I discovered why.
After the first 30-minutes of the film "Masterminds", I looked right at my wife and she looked at me. Without saying a word, we both knew we were thinking the same thing: "Let's turn off this horrible excuse for a comedy and salvage what's left of our evening." With Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig & Owen Wilson, I thought for sure it would be funny...even if it was dumb, that's okay because you need to watch a mindless flick every now and again. But when you recognize the parts of a comedy that are "supposed to be" funny but you aren't laughing and haven't so much smirked during the first 30 minutes of the film, it's time to move on to something else. Now is 30 minutes enough time to properly judge a movie? Probably not but that wasn't a risk I was willing to take. If you make it through the whole film, maybe you can let me know if it's worth another try. -montez
