Perhaps the most damning thing that can be said about "Term Life" is that it's exactly the limp, shapeless, and forgettable kind of thriller you might expect from the director of "Couples Retreat" (Peter Billingsley, a.k.a. Ralphie from "A Christmas Story"). Vince Vaughn, starring in the kind of role that feels like it was only available to him because Nicolas Cage passed on it first, plays Nick Barrow, a low-level criminal who designs heists for a living. He doesn't execute them or get his hands dirty, he's merely the architect. Judging by the monotone delivery of his voiceover narration, he's getting a little bored with his work (it sounds like Vaughn was hopped up on painkillers when he went into the recording booth, though it's almost worth the price of admission to hear how he pronounces the word "schematics"). Fortunately for Nick, a multiple homicide is about to spice things up, as a group of his clients is gunned down when they return to their hideout after a successful steal.
