When I first saw Scorched, I had the same lackluster response to it as most of the other reviewers. I fully expected to forget it utterly, and was quite surprised to find that my thoughts kept returning to it. Eventually I was motivated to see it again and find out why, and the second time through I figured it out.

While the movie does only a tolerable job of telling a funny story and holding the viewer's attention, it delivers a devastatingly accurate rendition of the cultural wasteland that is the California-Arizona desert.

In the same way that Lost in Translation so exquisitely captures the feeling of working abroad on your own, Scorched captures the utterly sublime squalor of small desert towns. The setting is squalid, the things that happen in the plot are squalid, and above all, the characters are so delicisouly squalid.

Taken as a portrait rather than a story, this movie is a masterpiece.

I loved this movie! The plot was pretty simple but the quirkiness made it really keep my interest. Note, for example, the shirts worn by the boy with the plane and Doleman. And what to heck is that on the boy's face? Also, watch Doleman's face during the opening credits. And watch the two "Monday" bank scenes closely. Notice any differences? Why was that scene filmed twice (other than the different character perspectives)? Oh yeah, see if anything strikes you as odd about the rubber arrow on Charles Merchant's face during his infomercial. These and other oddities that aren't tied to the plot make it clear that the director/writers/actors enjoyed making the movie which makes it fun to watch. I'd love to know where it was filmed and how accurate the bank temperature display was! It said 94 in the morning and 112 in the afternoon. Details that seem trivial are rarely in a film by accident so the quirks in this film help make it worth seeing a few times.

This is a great comedy of errors and luck. It has the same cinematic feel of Rat Race but without the cheesy politically correct ending.
All of the main characters are in some way tied to a bank. John Cleese is the ecentric millionare client that sells "How to Make Money in Real Estate" books on tape. Woody Harrelson is a strange dessert animal loving weirdo that wishes to avenge death of his duck's mother. If these two character breifs sound like something you normally like then you will definitely like this movie.

I bought this DVD on a whim while in my local shop. I figured, hey, it's got 2 hot chicks in it, and 2 guys who are pretty funny. I was right. I laughed the whole way through this movie. It's got a decent plot, good solid characters who are funny, and a quirky way about it. If you're into movies like "How To Kill Your Neighbor's Dog", "An Everlasting Piece", or "100 Girls" then this movie is your cup 'o tea.

Scorched is one of those flicks you've seen a dozen times over: Crazy cast of characters who seem destined to a life less realized. But circumstances dictate they pull out all the stops, gamble with everything they have or will ever have, and choose another path.

Scorched is one of those flicks you've seen a dozen times over: Crazy cast of characters who seem destined to a life less realized. But circumstances dictate they pull out all the stops, gamble with everything they have or will ever have, and choose another path.

In this case, three tellers in a small southwestern community have decided that they're going to rob the bank. The twist: None of them knows the plans of the others -and- each has independently planned to do it over the same weekend.

Sheila (Silverstone) because she wants to get back at her recent-ex-boyfriend, the prig bank manager. Stuart (Costanzo) because he's never done anything "big" in his life. And Woods (Harrelson) the wilderness hippie who has been working undercover as a corporate stooge in order to get revenge for the death of his best friend's mother. His best friend is a duck named George.

And almost any production that has Woody Harrelson in the mix is likely to be, at the very least, interesting - even if the film itself sucks toads. In Harrelson's case - that can be taken literally.

As it happens, Woody notwithstanding, this was an enjoyable flick.

Lightheartedly funny throughout, touching and sentimental at the right spots, and plausible enough to make some sense in movie terms. A difficult balance for this kind of low-budget ensemble production. So credit is due to Director Grazer who achieved it.

I honestly don't know why I'm giving Scorched such a high rating. It wasn't particularly funny, it was only sometimes interesting, the beginning of the film was nearly unwatchable because it was so awful, and yet, here I am giving the movie a 4 out of 5 rating!

It's about a bunch of people who work at a bank who develop their own ways to steal the money out of the safes. The story is actually carefully and somewhat intelligently put together, and some of the scenes near the middle of the film were really good (such as that one guy leaving his fancy home with a shotgun and walking down the street going after the people he believes are throwing eggs at the house, not to mention his little dog was hysterical too).

A very good moment at the very end of the film before the credits start rolling. I loved that ending. This is one of those "good enough to waste an hour and a half" type movies and not a classic case of comedy genius or anything.
