MASTERMINDS unites a wealth of US comedy royalty, pairing Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover 1,2 & 3, Due Date, The Campaign) withKristen Wiig
(Bridesmaids, Anchorman 2 and the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot) for the first time. Outstanding support comes from comedy king Owen Wilson (Wedding
Crashers, Zoolander), stalwart Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses 1&2, We’re the Millers) and introducing the hilarious newcomer Kate McKinnon (Saturday
Night Live). Jared Hess directs (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) alongside legendary producer Lorne Michaels, who has steered Saturday Night Live
successfully for 40 years.
The film tells the hilarious true story of David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) a half-brained driver at an armoured car company who is led astray by his
flirtatious work crush Kelly (Kristen Wiig). Kelly and her buddy Steve (Owen Wilson) convince David to do an inside job, and to everyone’s surprise he
manages to pull off one of the biggest bank heists in US History! With Steve conspicuously flashing the cash and the FBI closing in on them the plan starts
to go south, then further south. Meanwhile Ghantt is hiding out in Mexico awaiting the money and Kelly, but an unexpected guest arrives in her place. With
everyone out for themselves, things quickly start to fall, stumble and slip apart…
They’re so dumb, it’s criminal.
