There's a great film to be made of this rather insane tale, but Driven is categorically not it. Too much is made of the veneer of the high life, the parties, and the disgusting wealth that masks the rot at the lives of all the protagonists.
The comic tone sits rather uneasily with this limited drama, and you wonder if going more blackly comic might have made this more engaging. As it is, this is mildly entertaining but largely forgettable.
Sudeikis, alas, is no Cruise and his screen persona is too lightweight to inject the film with genuine empathy or to make it anything other than a disposable teaser for the deeper, darker DeLorean drama that will inevitably follow.
