Tower Heist

How do you cram so many "A list" actors into such a boring film?

The best part of the movie was Eddie Murphy, as unnecessary as his character was; he was the best part from the beginning when he only said a few words before Ben Stiller walked past him on the street.

This movie thinks it's funny. Should we tell it the truth, or do you think the movie would cry? I'm thinking its feelings are rather delicate. A crying, boring, delicate movie - that's what this movie is.

Instead, watch the movies it wishes it was. I'm sure I don't need to provide a list.

And talk about slow beginnings! Holy crap.

Ben Stiller manages an apartment complex called... The Tower. Like the genius he is, he invests all his employee's pensions, except he trusts one of the tenants to do the investing. Wuh-oh! Turns out this tenant is a crook. So Ben Stiller and friends decide to rob his penthouse and find their pensions. Don't look at me like that; I told you it was boring!
