Set in present day Burbank, California and the surrounding San Fernando Valley area, BANK ROLL is a quirky drama that focuses on offbeat characters who team up for one daring crime. BENNY BIG-TIME (The BBT) learns his brother has been arrested on suspicion of a few recent bank robberies. With every bit of the life savings he’s socked away over the years, The BBT hatches a plan to help out this older brother escape the repercussions of his fate by complicating his own with the assistance of five close friends — ERIK, DEREK, JAMIE, K.C. and KYLE. The gang have only four days to create a ‘red herring’ that will throw off the officials and clear The BBT’s brother’s name by actually robbing a small bank. If all goes to plan, this is enough ‘reasonable doubt’ in the brother’s case to clear his name.

  1. Again a movie that shows off Laurels that it does not deserve, that were given by some theater in Hollywood just because the movie was made locally. This movie is crap unless it is a student film that is still waiting for a grade. I would fail it, but at least it would not be pretending that it was a real full movie that is worth watching. This mess of genre mix-ups is so bad, I just need to point out why. The cast are all acting for, and to themselves, they are rarely if ever actually interacting with each other, or truly reacting to one another between lines. Each actor is in their own little bubble, and seem to be reading off different scripts some times as well. The dynamic of the group as a whole just feels faked, and unrehearsed. The "Al Pacino" inner monologue is sad at best, and not funny, then it gets worse. There is a need by the director to over play every scene, from filming angles to locations there is just too much unnecessary clutter, and not enough actual quality to make up for it. Well I did not Enjoy this, and I am pretty sure it's a safe bet you won't either.

  2. You know all those scenes from Tarantino movies where characters talk about random stuff to each other? Tarantino does them right. Whoever did this movie does not.

    That would not be much of a problem if there was more to this movie, however that is ALL that this movie is. No action, just those rambling stories.

    I liked few jokes in scene in a car between guy with dreads and guy with glasses, but that was just about only barely OK part of entire movie.

    As I marked this 'spoiler' here's a big one … there is no bank robbery. The entire thing is basically just bunch of guys talking about how they are going to do it, and then just nothing.

    It left me feeling disappointed. In a bad way. Like being young in back of the car with girl, but her going 'this is as far as I go' and going home with blue balls. Not cool.
