A group of working-class men all fall victim to the same ponzi scheme. They conspire to pull off a robbery of the high-rise of the man responsible for their predicament. This movie was not funny and that red car in the film looks like the same car from Ferris bueller's day off.

Tower Heist borrows heavily from other (and better) films such as Ocean's Eleven and The Italian Job, but with a great cast and a solid script, this film makes for a very entertaining and satisfying experience.

This is like a bargain basement version of Ocean's Eleven - with more comedic elements (and less A-list actors). There were a few solid laughs, decent characters and a relevant story line - but overall, a completely average, forgettable film.

Marking a return to form for Eddie Murphy, as well as boasting some delicious turns from Alan Alda and Gabourey Sidibe, 'Tower Heist' is clever, if not exactly revolutionary, entertainment.

No Stolen Oscars Here

After leading some campy offerings such as ‘A Night At The Museum’, ‘Tropic Thunder’, and ‘The Fockers’ series, one would expect that with Ben Stiller, ‘Tower Heist’ would be just more of the same. Surprisingly, though, this film attempts to play it straight and serves the comedy up as only a side dish. Director Brett Ratner (all three ‘Rush Hour’ films) is no stranger to action comedy, and he seems to demonstrate some seasoning and restraint with this effort.

Based around a fictional apartment high-rise in the heart of New York City, the story centers on Stiller’s character, Josh Kovacs, who is the no-nonsense building manager. The building’s star tenant, Arthur Shaw (an excellent performance by Alan Alda who quickly earns the audience’s scorn), is a financial executive who appears to...

Movie Review of Tower Heist

Remember the days when a movie with Eddie Murphy in it was guaranteed to be hysterical? I know, it's been awhile. Aside from his 'Beverly Hills Cop' days, I feel safe saying that the last thing he was in that made me really laugh out loud was "Shrek"---there are a lot of "Donkey" quotes going on in my house, especially when someone mentions waffles or parfaits. Sadly, that little gem was followed by 'Daddy Day Care', and more disturbingly, 'Norbit', which I still haven't quite forgiven him for. I know he redeemed himself slightly in his 'Dreamgirls' role, but MY dream has been to see him get back to business and make me laugh. Well, welcome back Mr. Murphy---it's nice to see you again.

THE GOOD: The movie 'Tower Heist' is kind of like a modern day Robin Hood, only instead of taking dow...
