There may be spoilers the rest of the review

Verdict: Slow Moving

Story: A Bad Idea Gone Wrong starts when two burglars Marlon (Jones) and Leo (Rogers) plan to rob a big house, they have planned to get in and what to steal, but things soon start going wrong when they meet the house sitter Darcy (Pienta) who believes they can find the goods they are after.

As the night unfolds the truths are revealed and the night ends up going from bad to worst for the two thieves and their hostage as they find themselves locked in the house.

Thoughts on A Bad Idea Gone Wrong

Characters – Marlon is one of the thieves, he comes up with the ideas to make things happen after Leo does the leg work, he will try the crazier ideas through the night. He isn’t happy with certain decisions that Leo makes. Leo is the partner in crime, he has picked the house for a certain reason which will only make complication through the night. Darcy is the house sitter or, so the thieves think as the dramas between the two in the mix.

PerformancesThe performances between the leads are solid, we follow Matt Jones, Will Rogers, Eleanore Pienta do have good chemistry and handle the material well without becoming the fully stand out performance between the three.

StoryThe story here follows two hapless thieves as they try to break into a house which only ends up with them becoming trapped in the house with a stranger, trying to plan a way out before the owners return. This in an interesting concept, even if not everything comes off well, certain moments come off overly long and drawn out without really going anywhere. This could have created bigger moments to fill the gaps in the story which falls flat.

ComedyThe comedy does work in places without giving us a true laugh out loud moment until the end.

SettingsThe film takes place in one location, the house that is being broken into which does help with how the film unfolds.

Scene of the Movie –
The alarm goes off.

That Moment That Annoyed Me There are moments in film that fill like filler.

Final ThoughtsThis is a slow moving comedy that does have a good idea, but doesn’t play enough into the comedy to get the laughs it could do.

Overall: Comedy that doesn’t have enough about it.
