The Scheme Movie Review

Incredibly stupid, this romantic/scheme movie features one of Jimmy Fallon's first performances, Timothy Bottoms as a right-wing preacher-cum-congressional candidate, and not much else. The thinnest of plot devices connects Fallon to cutie Andi Tecec, as Fallon and his friends (one sounds just like Revenge of the Nerds' "Booger") dream up countless schemes to get money. Like giving blood every day.

Finally the hit upon robbing a mailman to steal his mail in the hopes there will be cash inside. Whoa. They don't find any cash, but they do find a letter from a virginal Tecec to dad, expressing her concerns about being wooed into the sack. They then decide to approach a tabloid in the hopes of completing said wooing, videotaping it, and earning hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process.

Fortunately the convolutions end there. (As for the humor, that never gets going to start with.) Fallon's natural charm never takes root -- who knew he was such a greenhorn only 3 years ago -- and the rest of the film comes across as cheap and just plain dumb.

Aka The $cheme, The Entrepreneurs.
