There won't be a more aptly named film in all of 2014. Cheap Thrills makes promises and it looks like it'll deliver. E.L. Katz's directorial debut is a dark comedy about a couple of schmucks, played by Pat Healy and Ethan Embry, who meet a rich couple (David Koechner, Sara Paxton) and have their luck changed for the better—or so they think. It's all swell when Healy and Embry are paid off to commit stupid crimes and be professional Jackasses, but as the money stacks higher so do the stakes. As the crimes become increasingly violent the schmucks are forced to ask themselves how far will they go for some cold hard cash. Get rich or die trying, right? —Debbie Encalada
