Masterminds is kinder to its characters than most comedies about the bumbling and under-educated, and that's Hess's strength.
It's this improv-ready ensemble's wit and Galifianakis' own gift for physical humor that account for most of the laugh-out-loud moments, heightened by silly flourishes so eccentric...they could only be found in a Jared Hess movie.
Charlotte Observer -
Bits of welcome weirdness creep in, mainly through the too-brief character of Ghantt's intense fiancée (Kate McKinnon). But Hess has little time for wit.
Chicago Tribune -
Masterminds still has its riotously funny moments, thanks to the fearless, uninhibited actors and a director who lets them play.
