Small time crooks, poster children for the disenfranchised, they've been swept to the periphery of the American Dream and left to pick up it's crumbs. They push back against the system, refusing to be lumped in with the masses in the heartland, adopting the mantra 'Quit your day job'. They seek a better way. Problem is, they're idiots. All they've got is a car, a dream, and a very dumb idea: let someone else rob the bank, and then rob the robbers. Theirs is a quest to plunge headlong into the Pantheon of Poor Choices. 'The only thing we have to fear is fear itself'. Some Presidents offer quotes for the ages; others, not so much. These lowered standards have become the lyrics of a troubled era. It's the soundtrack of the misguided, and the music of choice of Tom and Grant. Just as Bruce Springsteen's lyrics for 'Born in the USA' were never anthemic, Tom and Grant's, 'When You Are a Star', was never intended to inspire... Tom Cavanagh and Grant Gustin, arch rivals on the television show 'The Flash', team up to play the titular small time crooks. Their brotherhood is the fuel that drives this caper, offering dissections of the movie stakeout archetype, musings on freedom, and a truly unfortunate misinterpretation of the term 'jazz hands'. Written and directed by Cavanagh, he marries the current politic of hearing only what we want to hear with the easy camaraderie of the buddy pic. See less
