The hilarious and unbelievable true story of two bumbling Aussie boys' calamitous bank robbery, and the stories left behind in their wake.

Aussies Chad and Brad are on trial.

Whilst on their gap year in the ski town of Vail, Colorado, they used fake IDs to go clubbing, stole credit cards, and shot paintballs at cars. And then, they robbed a bank... whilst still wearing their name tags from work.

Immediately identified by the two bank tellers, their crime was solved in just 8 minutes. So, to evade prison, they’re

Pleading Stupidity.
 


But as the boys attempted to snowboard to the airport, who were the bank tellers they left behind? And what’s their story? Will anyone listen to another version of events?
 


Inspired by the true story of the “Dumb and Dumber” bandits, and the lives of those they affected, Maybe You Like It’s newest comedy is told with high-energy, fast-paced action, multi-rolling cast, and verbatim speech.
