Set in present day Burbank, California and the surrounding San Fernando Valley area, 'BANK ROLL' is a quirky drama that focuses on offbeat characters who team up for one daring crime. BENNY BIG-TIME (The BBT) learns his brother has been arrested on suspicion of a few recent bank robberies. With every bit of the life savings he's socked away over the years, The BBT hatches a plan to help out this older brother escape the repercussions of his fate by complicating his own with the assistance of five close friends -- ERIK, DEREK, JAMIE, K.C. and KYLE. The gang have only four days to create a 'red herring' that will throw off the officials and clear The BBT's brother's name by actually robbing a small bank. If all goes to plan, this is enough 'reasonable doubt' in the brother's case to clear his name. The BBT figures to exactly recreate his brother's crime and arm himself with only a few folders of photographs which contain the bank tellers' friends, families, pets, places of residence and other personal information that would threaten the safety of the employees. 'BANK ROLL' is a slice-of-life tale about six friends who have done everything together, except rob a bank...

What would you do, if you had to help a family member who had been arrested? How far would you go?
If you want to see a movie of guys BSing each other for one and a half hours, there has got be a better way than this movie!
The dubbing on this movie is terrible. For most of the movie, sound followed an action or mouth movement 2-3 seconds after you see it. There have to be software packages that can get the sound synced with the movie closer than that.
Photography was terrible in places. It had weird angles (an upshot of an actor's crotch while doing pull-ups and others), scenes of just the back of an actor for an extended period of time, and one scene has a few minutes of odd still shots of parts of a car that contains 2 actors while the actors go on and on about their sex lives. In addition, somewhere in this scene, the color goes to black and white, going back to color at some time, it didn't seem related to the story.
I hung in their thinking that there would be a payoff when the actual robbery took place. But, NOOOOOO, the credits run and you hear what is supposedly some of the sounds of the robbery under the credits.
I don't see how anyone could recommend this film.
At one point the film attempts to be funny by using English subscripts for a guy talking slang, but it really wasn't necessary, nor was it as funny as when we saw it in "Airplane."
The film also lacks an on screen climax because Doug couldn't figure out how to make the inside of his apartment look like a bank.
It should be a crime to sell or rent this film.
