"Tower Heist" had the star talent, but it failed to deliver any interesting action or memorable laughs.

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.

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.

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.
