Masterminds movie quotes bring the laughs to the comedy movie about an unlikely pawn who pulls off one of the biggest cash heists ever. Based on the true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery, the film was directed by Jared Hess and written by Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer and Emily Spivey. Pushed back from a 2015 release date, Masterminds opened in theaters on September 30, 2016.

In Masterminds, David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) is a mild-mannered night guard for the armored car company Loomis. Though he's dreamed of an adventurous life, he settled for a boring life with few moments of excitement. But this all changes when David meets the beautiful blonde Kelly (Kristen Wiig), who, along with Steve (Owen Wilson), convinces David to steal $17 million from Loomis.

As David is living his dreams as a millionaire, albeit one on the run from the law for the robbery, it doesn't take long for Steve to cross David. Steve bails with the money, leaves David to take the fall and even hires slightly unstable hit man Mike (Jason Sudeikis) to kill off David. This doesn't please David, who must embrace that adventurous spirit to see vengeance against Steve.

Masterminds movie quotes also feature lines from other costars, including Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. If these quotes don't make you laugh, check out quotes from other September 2016 films such as Deepwater Horizon, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Goat, and The Dressmaker.
