As he proved in his first film, Chuck and Buck, and the TV series Enlightened, White has empathy for people on outside looking in, and Brad's Status is his most naked - and grim - exploration of envy yet.

Does the world need another Ben-Stiller-as-malcontent-white-man movie? When it's as sharp a satire as writer-director Mike White has made, absolutely!

While White might not make for an entirely convincing film-maker, his script still reveals his considerable skills as a humourist.

As dad obsessed with his son's college applications, Ben Stiller is at his best in Mike White's high-anxiety satire. Stiller and White: they make you laugh till it hurts.

Starting from a single key insight into human behaviour - the natural compulsion to compare oneself to others - White has spun a funny, empathetic and surprisingly grounded comedy that itself defies obvious comparisons.
