I don't have a job since, like, an hour ago.

Cheap Thrills (2013)

David Koechner has been great for many years now delivering above the pay grade performances even in dreck like Snakes on a Plane and he gets a chance to shine a dark light on his usual gregarious type in this often funny biting little piece.
A vicious look at the entitlement of those with money (though as with many films about the arrogance of wealth the poor come of perhaps even worse - the scramble to try and be rich born of stupidity and greed that is perhaps unfair but without it the protagonist would just walk off and there would be no story of course) and asking what would you do to pay your rent? To buy your kid food? 
It never really digs deeper than 'because they get off on it' for why the rich couple do what they do but all the cast are great and it doesn't outstay it's welcome.
Well worth a look.
