Jimmy, Clyde, and Mellie Logan are the Logan siblings.  Jimmy, a former high school prom king/football star, blew out his knee before his chance to go pro.  Clyde served 2 tours in Iraq.  But just before he went home, he lost his arm to an IED.  Mellie does hair at the local beauty salon but she has not met a car she couldn’t drive, fix, or control.  But days after Jimmy is fired, he comes up with a plan to make enough money to help his family and hire a lawyer to prevent his ex-wife Bobbie Joe from moving with his daughter Sadie to another state.   Jimmy tells Clyde he wants to rob the NASCAR’s Speedway by taking advantage of current construction work, the lack of security during a lesser-known race, and the Speedway’s pneumatic system.  Clyde and Jimmy know they can’t get to the volt without a “bomb guy”, so they go to see Joe Bang, in jail.  They tell Joe they have a plan to break him out of jail, do the robbery, and get him back to jail, without anyone noticing he is gone.  Joe is shocked and impressed but he has one condition to join the crew.  His brothers, Sam and Fish, must be involved in the heist in order to protect his interest.  After a “moral” conversation, Sam and Fish Bang agree to the heist.  With everything in place, Jimmy’s 10-step plan seems full proof.  Until he talks to an old friend and learned that the current construction is running ahead of schedule.  They will have to move the robbery up by a week, during the Memorial Day Coca-Cola 600.  The busiest and most secure race of the year.   At the end, this robbery will include roaches, gummy bears, a chemistry lesson, a jailhouse “riot”, Game of Thrones, cake, and cauliflower (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  Will the Logans finally become Lucky?

This is Ocean’s Eleven with less polish but just as sophisticated (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  You will need to keep an eye open for everything you see and your ears open to everything you hear.  This robbery movie throws several curve balls at the watcher to keep them on their toes while providing plenty of laughs.  It’s pure entertainment when watching the Logan Brothers convince the Bang Brothers to do the job.  As well as seeing Mellie behind the wheel and meeting any car knowledge challenge.  Don’t be surprised if you feel like you want to watch this movie twice.   You will feel like you missed something because they pull a fast one on the audience as well.  There should have been more information on the Bang brothers and their relationship.  Let’s see if they are given more in part 2.  There should be a part 2.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

The only thing I need a cell phone for is to take pictures of you – Jimmy

Did you say cauliflower to me – Clyde

Don’t get greedy – Mellie

Well, I’m sitting on this side of the table wearing a onesie. How do think it’s going – Joe Bang

I love stick. I’m a big fan of stick – Moody
