You know there's something wrong with a comedy when you'd rather see the main characters killed off than live happily ever after.

It's a mess from start to finish, but there's still fun to be had in Rob Minkoff's caper comedy.

Minkoff doesn't bring a whole lot of originality to the picture, which could use a shot of surprise considering the snoozy bank heist conventions it employs. Still, what he lacks in freshness he makes up for in velocity.

Strictly amateur hour, despite the number of recognizable names in the cast. Not sure what they were trying to do, but the premise is so lame that the whole… More

Two sets of bank robbers, one very sticky heist. Good decent movie. This was a nice comedic bank robbery movie. It's a mix between films like Clue and The… More

Unfunny, badly written, poorly acted, and undeniably pointless, Flypaper is a disaster of a movie. It was trying to be an offbeat witty comedy, but it manages… More
