Right after some gawky training in grounding of the robbery, the squad has David gone into Loomis’ vault and then loaded the total money supply in the company car. Before he left, David brings out three CCTV videos, but missed one.

When the time that David regains his consciousness, McKinney was about to murder him, but think twice before glancing at McKinney’s birth records. Imagining that David was born out under similar circumstances; they became buddies.

The Writers’ View:

Despite having comic juggernauts just like Kristen Wiig with the rest of the cast, Zach Galifianakis was the main powerhouse and the genius one that made the film flow. When he wasn’t on display, it did not run the same when he was on it. He played brilliant stupidity that he may have you broken a gut uncontrollably. The more foolish it is, the funnier it gets. Proving that the movie was really funny being a true statement, because Galifianakis heads an ensemble cast list in the story based on real events regarding a security guard that is living a boring life and is about to wed to the woman that would have him not until his co-employee applied her lady charm in order to convince him in assisting her friend to rob their employer. The movie is an adorable, laid out heist film, but the movie has so many comical masterminds in it.
