Movie Info

A recent college graduate grows increasingly nihilistic during an economic downturn, and kidnaps the children of three wealthy men for a $3 million ransom. Shortly after earning his degree, Paul Dynan (Kevin Zegers) realizes the certificate in his hand is barely worth the paper it's printed on. Subsequently drowning in a sea of debt due to his student loans and his mother's medical bills, the disillusioned graduate hits a breaking point as the bank prepares to foreclose on his family home, and devises a plan to earn some quick cash while giving the rich a lesson in humility. His plan: abduct three privileged socialites with the help of two young deviants, and make their fathers (Ray Liotta, Victor Garber), and Stephen McHattie) fork over $3 million for their safe return. Unfortunately for Paul, the bitter infighting between his three affluent targets is about to blow the plan sky high, and offer a painful lesson in the perils of crime. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for The Entitled

What an absolute joke. Poor kids abduct rich kids for money. Ray Liota's awful performance killed all potential, even the potential of this being a somewhat acceptable B movie. Skip it.

"The Entitled" is one of the best crime films with manipulation as the main theme. The ending contains so many twists that nobody could have predicted in the beginning.

I'll watch anything Kevin Zegers is in... which isn't good, since he has a tendency to make pretty crappy movies. This one isn't an exception. There are two or three scenes that are mildly interesting, and beyond that... nothing. I actually walked away for about half an hour in the middle of the movie and came back feeling like I hadn't missed anything.
