Bi-polar mall security guard Ronnie Barnhardt is called into action to stop a flasher from turning shopper's paradise into his personal peep show. But when Barnhardt can't bring the culprit to justice, a surly police detective, is recruited to close the case.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
The not so smart Dwayne intends to open a massage parlor with his partner Travis, but he does not have money for the investment. He decides to hire a hit-man to kill his father, The Major, who won a large amount of money in the lottery years ago, but the killer demands US$ 100,000 for the job. Dwayne and Travis kidnap the pizza delivery boy Nick and they dress Nick in a vest with a timer and several bombs. Then Dwayne tells Nick that he has ten hours to rob US$ 100,000 from a bank. Once he does, he would give Nick the code to release the vest. Nick summons his best friend Chet to help him in the heist but the scheme does not work the way Dwayne has plotted. Written by

When Chet is painting the gun, smudges on the car door can be seen. In the shots where the car is stopped, the smudges are gone, also the painted paper is turned.
Later in the end of the movie when the van drives next to them, the paint smudges are also not on the door. See more »
You're a cold son of a bitch, dad.
That's what it takes, boy. In the Corps, pussies like you wore dresses to keep us entertained.
That's really fuckin' disturbing.

Two friends must work together to steal enough money demanded to be delivered to two sociopath partners-in-crime that hire an assassin to murder their boss. Already you can see how complex this plot is, but even with the simple direction between the four main characters, their stories are vastly different and could have been written more cleverly conjoined had it not had promise to work as an individual idea.
Many viewers may create comparisons to other superior or inferior darkly comedies and some true events that may amuse or alienate them. Luckily, the characters are self-aware of the nonsense that may occur with unintentional deaths and stupidity from their choices. But even though every character follows their own steps to obtain what they want or please others, it doesn't do complete justice for the overall story and viewers.
The cast and crew may have done their part, but most of the film could have done more for them if the writing had some crucial changes. If only it had more focus and less characters used for the wrong reasons, or used more in a way where their importance isn't limited to less appeal, this film would have felt worth more than thirty-minutes to some viewers. Instead, this is a disjointed bomb job that could have blown us away with bigger and better surprises even though the fuse had a shortage of that and more.
