Tower Heist

Ben Stiller leads an all-star cast in this crime caper from action-comedy veteran Bret Ratner (the Rush Hour trilogy). 

Stiller teams up with Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick and Casey Affleck as a group of blue collar guys who plan the mother of all heists, to rob the Penthouse apartment of a Wall Street swindler (Alan Alda) after losing everything in his fraudulent Ponzi scheme.

During the heist itself, the suspense is palpable, if only because Christophe Beck's funky score blares its horns so insistently, one can't help but feel anxious. But the laughs don't follow.

An entertaining but uptight comedy that strains to match the throwaway fizz of the Ocean’s movies. Cool cast, but it increasingly resembles a strategy game you’re neither invited, nor inclined, to join.

Tower Heist could and should have been much more. Mr. Ratner goes for the safe bet and the easy score.

The movie is broad and clumsy, and the dialogue cannot be described as witty, but a kind of grandeur creeps into the screenplay by Ted Griffin and Jeff Nathanson.

Tower Heist might not be a classic (it's not), but at least for a little while it will make you laugh instead of cry about the current state of affairs, which is more than you can say about a lot of things.

Fun if uneven stuff from Ratner. A welcome return to form for Eddie Murphy and an even-more-welcome turn by the ever-excellent Alan Alda.

In the end, Tower Heist isn't a black Ocean's Eleven or a bold leap forward for feature-film distribution, just a passable piece of commercial entertainment that falls closer to product than art.
