Re-watched this last week and I gotta say it holds up very well. Still pretty funny, and definitely a good re-watch around Thanksgiving time.
Original review "Tower Heist" is kind of like a comedic version of the "Ocean's 11" movies. Alan Alda plays a millionaire who inves...

Tower Heist had a great cast of actors to be such a bad film. I guess I expected more considering the actors the film had lined up. The movie was kinda funny. It had interesting characters, but I think what really made this film fall flat was the story. It wasn't too origi...

Funny movie, great cast. Inspired by Ocean's Eleven. A group of ex-employers led by Josh (Ben Stiller) break into the Tower to steal millions from its owner. The owner Shaw stole their pension fund and caused their friend and colleague Henderson to jump in front of a train. Slide...

Pleasantly surprised, Tower Heist isn't half as bad as I'd been lead to believe. I thought the cast were good and worked well together, I liked the story, I didn't find it predictable and I liked the end. I was entertained pretty much throughout and I even laughed a couple of tim...

Fun movie with some rather funny scenes. Decent cast. Not the best movie, but definitely nothing too much to complain about.

A decent comedy with a good assembled cast line up. It has quite a lot of funny moments but to be honest when I first saw the trailers I thought this could be a classic. Unfortunately it didn't reach that level, but still worth a viewing for a few laughs.

Ben Stiller steps way out on this one and does an excellent job in his part. Eddie Murphy still has it but plays his typical part and his acting is the same as seen in many past movies. The story line is incredible and rivals the scandal that went on with Bernie in NYC months bac...

This film was forgettable. Literally. It seemed decent enough while we were watching it, but the next day I could hardly remember anything I viewed. I'm not sure that anything that has any value merits such a response. Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy have been past their primes ...

Ordinary guys. An extraordinary robbery.
Good movie! It is actually very entertaining and the performances from the entire cast are solid. I laughed a lot and more than I expected. It also has quite a few twists and turns which I wasn't expecting and which should keep you intere...
