Airborne heist movie Money Plane has gotten a double dose of comedic critique in a new Honest Trailers/Pitch Meeting crossover video. The film, which stars Adam Copeland, Kelsey Grammar, Thomas Jane, and Denise Richards, released in July of 2020 on various video-on-demand platforms to an abysmal critical reception. Now Money Plane is getting both the Honest Trailers and Pitch Meeting treatment, all at once.

The story of Money Plane follows master thief Jack Reese (Copeland), who agrees to execute a dangerous heist to pay his debt to criminal mogul Darius “The Rumble” Grouch (Grammar). The heist involves sneaking aboard the infamous Money Plane – an airborne haven where international ne’er-do-wells gamble on illegal and bizarre things – and robbing it of both its cash stores and cryptocurrency stock. The heist goes haywire, and the crew must fight through the Money Plane to get out with their money and lives.

Though the concept sounds fun on paper, Money Plane fails to deliver any effective execution. The movie currently holds a dismal 23 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it’s become notorious in the year since its release for its glaring, if occasionally hilarious, faults. Now, Money Plane has gotten the complete Honest Trailers treatment, with a special crossover appearance from Screen Rant’s own Pitch Meeting series. It’s a total takedown of the film from start to finish, which should be fun for both those who’ve seen Money Plane and those who haven’t. Watch the video below.

As shown in the video, there can still be merit in a universally terrible film. Famously bad movies like The Room have become cult-classics specifically because their flaws make them entertaining to watch, and Money Plane has built up a similar reputation since its release. Perhaps that backward legacy will keep Money Plane in the public consciousness for years to come. Or maybe the joke will die, and the film’s notoriety will fade along with it.

At the very least, Money Plane delivers an incredibly cartoonish villain in Grammar’s Darius Grouch, brought hilariously to life by the Frasier star’s manic, shouty performance. Grammar is set to reprise his iconic role as Frasier Crane in the upcoming Paramount+ revival series, but it’s nice to see him having some fun with less mainstream roles as well. Money Plane is still available via video-on-demand for anyone interesting in seeing it for themselves. However, viewers might be better served by just watching the Honest Trailer and saving their money.
