Far from a bad idea gone wrong, this low-key, low-budget indie comedy starring Matt Jones is an unexpected gem.

The misconceived notion of the title is the prospective heist cooked up by slacker friends Jones and Will Rogers – robbing a large house in a gated community.

Unfortunately, the bungling would-be criminals manage to trap themselves inside by accidentally arming the home’s alarm system.

Making matters even worse, the robbery turns into a hostage situation when they stumble upon an unexpected housesitter (Eleanore Pienta).

To say any more would be to spoil the fun. All you need to know is that first-time writer-director Jason Headley delivers twists and turns and gags galore, while the excellent performances add a note of surprising sweetness.
