Zach Galifianakis succeeds in making an already ridiculous crime even funnier in this caper comedy from the director of 'Napoleon Dynamite.'

Hess dives deeply into the ass crack of suburban North Carolina, finding lowbrow caricature courtesy [sic] his two wonderfully shameless lead actors, Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig.

The full-on goofiness is not reliably buoyant; this is an intermittently enjoyable but often choppy comic ride.

A tooth extraction without painkillers would have been far more enjoyable.

The movie has been on ice awaiting release for over a year, owing to the bankruptcy of its studio. But some of the jokes were moldy long before that happened. Masterminds owes us our two hours back.
