Product Description

Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an all-star cast in this hilarious comedy caper about a luxury condo manager (Stiller) who leads a staff of workers to seek payback on the Wall Street swindler (Alan Alda) who defrauded them. With only days until the billionaire gets away with the perfect crime, the unlikely crew of amateur thieves enlists the help of petty crook Slide (Murphy) to steal the $20 million they’re sure is hidden in the penthouse. From the director of the Rush Hour series, “Tower Heist is so fun, it's criminal!” (ASSOCIATED PRESS)

At the center of Tower Heist is a gleaming Ferrari once owned by Steve McQueen, and that's what the movie is: a sleek machine, tooled for speed. Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) manages a super-high-tech high-rise in the middle of Manhattan, catering to every need of the tower's residents, including financier Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda). When Shaw gets arrested by the FBI, Kovacs realizes that his staff's pensions, which he asked Shaw to invest, are lost, and when it looks like Shaw is going to get away with it, Kovacs pulls together a mismatched team (included Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Michael Peña, Gabourey Sidibe, and Eddie Murphy) to steal the secret stash of cash that the FBI suspects Shaw must have. Tower Heist successfully tweaks all the character clichés just enough so that they are a smooth blend of the familiar and the unexpected. The plot zips along with purring efficiency, alternating predictable turns with surprising ones just enough to keep the pattern-seeking parts of the viewer's brain hooked. The cast--which also includes Téa Leoni as the lead FBI agent--charms without overdoing it. In essence, director Brett Ratner (the guy behind X-Men: The Last Stand and the Rush Hour series) has honed all of his sloppier tendencies and crafted a skillful piece of mass entertainment. Afterward, the movie's plot holes and defiance of the laws of physics may irritate, but while it's unfolding, Tower Heist is a smooth ride. --Bret Fetzer

    Just got back from a sneak preview of this film, and it was a blast!

    The story revolves around the employees and residents of an exclusive, high-rise New York tower. When one of the residents, a wealthy Wall Street tycoon (played brilliantly by Alan Alda), is arrested for embezzling, the employees learn that they have lost their pensions and savings, all of which were given over as "investments." Several of them hatch a scheme to recoup their losses, and then everything goes haywire.

    The cast is terrific. Ben Stiller plays the understated, very likeable building manager. Eddie Murphy is the funniest he's been in years as Slide, a small time criminal the employees turn to for help. The rest of the cast is very strong, including Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Gabourey Sidibe, and more.

    Everyone is in fine form, and director Brett Ratner finds the balance of fun and thrills he's been missing since at least Rush Hour 2.

    There are twists you don't see coming, lots of laugh out loud moments, and the story is very timely, in light of the Bernie Madoff scandal and public dissatisfaction with Wall Street in general.

    Go see this! Seriously!

    How can you go wrong with a movie that has a central premise in which Derek Zoolander, Ferris Bueller, Axel Foley and Precious rob Hawkeye from M*A*S*H*? Honestly, you can't. "Tower Heist" is what a movie with an ensemble cast is supposed to be. It is constantly interesting, always moving with twists and turns, a great script and laughs throughout that don't insult your intelligence.

    "Tower Heist" is about a group of employees that maintain, run and devote their lives to a collection of upper-crust socialites in a downtown Manhattan high-rise residence. At the top of this high-rise is Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) who lives a life of spoil and wealth. Shaw can quite simply be compared to the likes of Bernie Madoff, which is another reason why this movie may hit home with some, and is most definitely a lot of the inspiration for the movie's plot. So when Shaw is exposed for milking people of their life savings and retirement funds, the employees of the Tower's lives come crashing down.

    "Tower Heist" has more entertainment value, fun and creativity than any of the newer "Oceans" movies and much of that comes from the band of unlikely misfits that choose to embark on a life of crime; the newly fired tower manager feels responsible, the wimpy divorcee who is being kicked from the tower with his new home, a box, in hand, the former BK (Burger King) employee and the expected father who has no money to support his coming family.

    "Heist" benefits from its ability to stay home and realistic. Even when things get crazy, the movie stays feasible and that is the most enjoyable thing about it. The creators could have gotten silly, like some of Stiller's movies, but they didn't. They kept things real and that made you feel like you could be in their shoes at anytime.

    Let's see here you got Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Michael Pena, and Eddie Murphy in a heist movie where do I sign up?

    This is a nice twist on the heist genre with a couple of bumbling idiots who wouldn't be able to steal a stick of bubble gum much less steal money getting all together to make a truly funny experience.

    Ben plays Josh Kovacks who is head of the tower where he works. He finds out the boss he used to have respect for Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) is actually a crook who has stolen not only his money but all the employees money in the whole building. We're talking wages, life savings, what have you. Shaw is already under investigation by the Feds, so he has nothing to lose and could care less if he's brought a lot of suffering to people he swindled ala Bernie Madoff.

    Josh vows to get revenge assembling all of the people with an axe to grind on Shaw and planning an elaborate heist. Trouble is no one has a freaking clue how to pull it off.

    Josh enlists a crook named Slide (Eddie Murphy) to bring his expertise to lead the plan.

    This movie is very funny. Obviously all of the big names here are all comedy veterans: Stiller is a joke a minute, Broderick has always been good in whatever role he's been given, Michael Pena is a good and up coming actor,but probably the biggest surprise here has to be Eddie Murphy.

    Eddie is a comedy veteran to be sure, but he has been in a A LOT of bad, bad movies, so this was a nice change from all that. In fact I got a "Trading Places" vibe here when he gets recruited by Josh to be part of the team.

    There are a lot of funny scenes in this movie that everybody will have a favorite one.

    A Bernie Madoff- like character at a swanky New York high-rise is accused of losing or swindling the life savings of the staff. A few of them hatch a scheme to steal $20m that he is suspected of hiding. Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller bring their considerable talents to this action-comedy, making it both funny and exciting. The film combines clever comedy with some intense action sequences to bring the audience to the edge of their seats while laughing at the same time. This one was well-done.
