Short Film The Heist Spoofs Putting Together Heist Teams in Movies

There’s always a kicker. The Heist is something that you might expect as a Superbowl commercial that’s main aim is to sell something like beer, soda, or something equally as silly but still desired.  The whole Ocean’s Eleven motif is nice and all but it gets a little nuts when they start describing who they’re going to get for the job. Even the real movies didn’t get this crazy with it.

Let’s take a look at who they’re getting:

The wheelman: Davey Hayes

He’s good, that’s about the extent of his resume. Seems plausible. Moving on.

Demolitions Expert-Jimmy BangBang

Even for being Croatian that’s kind of an odd name. Plus, he seems to like using extreme heat and what looks like fire around explosive materials. That might be an issue.

Tiny Korean

Stereotypical, yet needed for heist jobs that have to do with hard to reach spaces and crevices that no one else can fit into.

Black guy with Cockney accent

Because what team doesn’t need a guy with a Cockney accent?

Tough guy

Somehow there’s always a need for a tough guy that can take a lot of abuse.

Take no prisoners cop

Whoa, back up. A cop on a heist? Eh, maybe he can come in handy if he’s a crooked cop.

The white struggling coach

You know, because the crew might need a really good, heartfelt, emotional pep talk at some point.

The crusty anti-party dean

I’m seriously at a loss with this one. She might be more of a hindrance really.

The father and son that switch bodies

Okay, now they’re just making things up as they go.

Two guys holding guns on each other under a table

What happens when one of them has to go to the bathroom? Do they call a time out and then go back to it?

Victorian street urchin

Note the fingerless gloves, not important at all but they should be given some attention.

Two misfits that are also ghosts

Ah, but they didn’t KNOW they were ghosts. Eh? Eh? Eh.

1st time attorney and his client

Maybe they could run a scam on Featherstone as a distraction if the attorney can postpone his vampire hunting duties for a while.

A guy looking in the mirror

Um. What?

A girl from a post-apocalyptic world with a hacker boyfriend

Finally, someone that might come in handy even if their catch phrases are tired and horrible.

A successful white guy returning home for a wake up call

That wake up call might be that he’s not really successful and needs to join in the heist. Yes? Any takers?

Two good-looking con men pitching their scheme to a rich individual.

So at this point they’re taking themselves out of the heist it seems like and choreographing it in a way that makes it even more convoluted. I totally get it now! But not really.

It seems like a lot of spoof films, even shorts, tend to go over the top as a rule these days rather than as  real attempt at satire.
