From the writers of The Hangover, Patrick Dempsey (Valentine’s Day, Enchanted) and Ashley Judd (Tooth Fairy) star in this all out action heist comedy caper. A man caught in the middle of two simultaneous robberies at the same bank desperately tries to protect the teller with whom he's secretly in love.
Tripp Kennedy (Patrick Dempsey) ambles into a bank near closing time, just as two different gangs unwittingly converge to rob it. A shoot-out erupts, and Tripp tackles the smart, pretty teller (Ashley Judd), to protect her. The gangs—one clearly made up of pros and the other a couple of buffoons named Peanut Butter (Tim Blake Nelson) and Jelly (Pruitt Taylor Vince) - have deadlocked themselves in a Mexican standoff. The bank’s security system starts the end of day lockdown and seals everyone into the building. As the night evolves, a hilarious game of cat and mouse ensues as Tripp and Kaitlin try to save the day, escape being killed, and avoid falling in love... almost.

A little about the premise; the two teams of bank robbers - one the stereotypical redneck couple of brothers with barely a brain cell between them named Peanut Butter & Jelly ("We wanted something that went well together but Milk & Cookies was taken") note-perfectly played by Tim Blake Nelson (Minority Report) & Pruitt Taylor Vince (Constantine) The second team are the professionals; equipped with blue-prints, safe hacking equipment and heavily armed, led by Darrien (Mekhi Phifer - Dawn Of The Dead), planned by Weinstein (John Ventimiglia - The Sopranos) and armed by the psychologically unstable Gates (Matt Ryan). The volatile interactions between the professionals and amateurs is brokered by Tripp to seemingly everyone's satisfaction - including allowing Tripp to get closer to the lovely bank-teller Kaitlin (Ashley Judd - Double Jeopardy).
Flypaper is a well filmed heist movie, the tensions are kept in place throughout the movie by the The Usual Suspects-style conspiracy elements but it is rather easy to see where the story is headed. Dempsey plays an obsessive man well, bringing a lot to the table with his performance whilst the other actors have so little individual screen-time they all come across as bit-parts. However, everyone's acting when on screen is commendable, I was genuinely interested in a lot of the characters and PB&J's brainless hijinks were disarmingly lovable.
All in all, I honestly wonder why it only had a limited theatrical release of just two cinemas; this is an excellent heist-gone-wrong movie with notable actors filling all of the roles. Definitely worth a watch!
After shots are fired, Tripp (who is off his medication) acts as a mediator between the two gangs to work out a compromise. There are things about this robbery that don't add up in Tripp's mind and he wants to know why. Tripp has a mental condition which aids him to figure things out. He plays "Clue" as things turn into "10 Little Indians." The robbers are a good quirky bunch as are the hostages. Excellent use of characters. Funny. Fast paced. Kudos to Rob Minkoff.
Excessive F-bombs. No sex or nudity.
During the initial Bank heist kerfuffle one of the customers is killed though, which seems to facinate Tripp, who after not getting his meds for his OCD like behaviour, then goes on to become what can only be described as a cross between t.v Detectives Columbo & Monk. As he starts to slowly deduce that something very sinister is going on, that only he believes & has to prove to the others, but will they listen ?!
In conclusion I thought this film was a good laugh in places & I really enjoyed the twist in the story as it moved along. The films cast is made up of a lot of well known faces, that you will recognize from this or that film/t.v show over the decades. with the likes of Jeffrey Tambor(does he not age ?!- The Hangover), Oscar Winner Octavia Spencer(The Help)& Curtis Armstrong (Moonlighting) etc.. I found it enjoyable, nothing exceptional, but I would still recommend watching it if you get the chance too, it's story is certainly different. Recommended.
