I came across Seven Psychopaths‘ trailer a couple of weeks ago, and it was love at first sight. And how else could it be since Seven Psychopaths lines up at least 4 big names in Hollywood: Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Colin Farrell, and Sam Rockwell. As for the plot: absolutely hilarious.
Now, if you’re a dog owner, you know just how much you’d be willing to sacrifice to get your doggy back, should you lose it. And that’s exactly what our psychopaths rely on. Especially when there’s so much money at stake. Why work or risk your life robbing banks and kidnapping people, when it’s so much easier to kidnap a dog. And you don’t even have to call the owner to ask for ransom. Just wait. In a couple of days, you’ll come across the “Missing Dog” ad on the street, making it just perfect for you to make your move, and be the hero. And every hero deserves a reward, right?
But what seems to be the perfect plan turns into a real nightmare, when our psychopaths kidnap the wrong dog and get the entire gangster squad on their tail. Somehow, even more people get dragged in this mess, among which a struggling screenwriter, whose only crime is being friends with these bozos. What follows is an amazingly action-packed comedy that will make you laugh your heart out.
And if all this hasn’t convinced you to give Seven Psychopaths a chance this weekend, just take a look at the trailer yourself:
