Bank$tas AKA Cubicle Warriors is 2013 comedy directed by Jeff Stephenson and starring Laura Vandervoort, Alan Thicke & Michael Seater. Life could not be better for best friends Neal and Isaac. They just graduated college and landed their dream job with a top investment bank. But when they discover their boss is planning a crooked student loan deal, their lives are thrown into turmoil. Determined to stop the corrupt plan, they concoct a crazy scheme of sex, drugs and espionage resulting in a wildly chaotic adventure. The score is composed by Steve London.
The comedy is fast and funky I presume because the score by Steve London is exactly that. ‘Big Hoss & Pistol Pete’ use a very funky 70s sound which is the recurring sound used through this score. ‘Big Hoss & Pistol Pete’ however might be the most fun. Cues like ‘Security Co-Mission’ and ‘Pistol On The Prowl’ is not getting quite the funkiness done right and I feel a bit left out. It has the problem of the music sounding the same all throughout, but it’s a funky ride so I had some fun along the way.
Bank$tas is a decent comedy score that doesn’t rely on too much comedic slapstick comedy moments, except it tried to do that with some funky 70s style music. It works and I had fun while listening. It’s still not a score I would pick up again any time soon.
