Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cheerfully crappy schlock."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"Alan Alda plays the billionaire, and his oleaginous smarm is so good that you almost wish Alda were starring in a hard-edged movie about Madoff instead of this goofy heist picture that takes way too long getting to the heist."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"It is a heist movie that doesn't care about the heist."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"What we end up with is a film that will have you laughing all the way through while at the same time reminding you that some talent never goes away, it just hibernates in smaller or inferior movies for awhile before that right project reaches them."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"A funny, if farfetched, revenge fantasy for folks bilked by the likes of Bernie Madoff."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"Made me laugh and held my interest more than it should have, given how sloppy it is. Call it an acceptable bit of B-minus work from a C student."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"This is, of course, Hollywood schlock, directed by shlock-master Brett Ratner. But it's also a surprisingly effective social drama."
‑ Robert Levin, The Atlantic
"The one-liners pop and the cast delivers."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Tower Heist is too much fun too dislike. It may not be the smartest or even the funniest film of the year, but it does feature one very entertaining ensemble that makes for a great ride."
‑ Benjo Colautti, We Got This Covered
"Tower Heist succeeds because of Eddie Murphy's snarky performance, and fun turns from the rest of the cast. But the heist itself is a little dumb and the story is riddled with plot holes."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"So what if it's sheer petty escapist enjoyment? Tower Heist delivers the laughs in desperate times."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Highly recommended if you want to watch an assortment of rich movie stars feel your pain."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"All corners of the oddball comedy genre are squarely covered in a way that somehow seems fresh despite the well tried-and-tested formula."
‑ Matt Looker,
"Feels more like a droll drama than an actual comedy, and it could have worked on those merits, but the stilted comedic asides rob the film of genuine weight."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"Occupy this: A feisty and funny heist movie with a nice turn by some guy named Eddie Murphy."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
