Of course, what high-stakes, ensemble comedy would be complete without plenty of shenanigans to boot? The fantastic supporting cast includes Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Gabourey Sidibe, Tia Leoni and Michael Pena.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good comedy crime romp 16 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I learnt a long time ago to not be put off by critic reviews as they are always based upon opinion.

This film was on my list, but not at the top so I waited until it appear on a deal (three blu-rays for 17).

Overall it's totally unbelievable, but enjoyable and the characters all bring presence to the story, although I thought Murphy and Broderick looked out of sorts throughout.

You can guess the ending half-way through, but worth a view if you can get it cheap like I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting to the top 5 May 2013
By j.r
Format:DVD
Tower Heist has a fun and original story and a very likeable cast. The cast includes Alan Alda as a rich business man who is arrested for dodgy financial deals. This eventually leads Ben Stiller to form a group that includes Eddie Murphy and Mathew Broderick to attempt to get into Alda's penthouse to try and get millions from a hidden safe. The film is mostly played quite straight but with some very funny lines and scenes, it is a comedy. Eddie Murphy has a great character that reminded me of how good he was in 48hrs and Trading Places, and it's great to see Alan Alda in a big Hollywood film, rather than just having a part in a Woody Allen film for instance. I think the film was fun viewing and could definitely be rewatched. Sadly it's not quite perfect and perhaps could have done with some slightly tighter editing, to keep the pace up.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your life watching this. 26 Mar 2014
By wommy
Format:Amazon Instant Video
even for something that obviously isn't aiming high in terms of what it offers and we expect, this is very poor indeed. it has a thin plot that somehow manages to have holes in it, lame jokes and phoned in performances from pretty much all of the cast. yeah, ok, it's a throwaway movie, but i wouldn't bother picking it up in the first place.

If you crossed Oceans Eleven with Die Hard then you might end up with something that looks like The Tower.

Essentially a heist film set in a high end residential apartment block in New York, the film is pretty non-stop with a blend of action and humour with a clever twist at the key moment.

Eddie Murphy is excellent in his role as a street crook brought into the team of Tower employees looking to recover their stolen pensions, and there are also strong performances from Ben Stiller and Alan Alda.

Utterly implausible of course, but great fun.

some great acting and great fun, just epitomises what happens in reality... the poor get it whilst the rich get a way with it but at least the protagonist gets it this time

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly improbable but highly likeable 6 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Director Brett Ratner, who brought us such classics as Rush Hour 3 and X Men: Last Stand, turns his hand to the heist movie with Tower Heist, which I've recently heard described as a poor man's Oceans Eleven. This is rather an unfair assessment, and I'm happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised by what is an unassuming and highly improbable, but also very entertaining comedy crime caper.

The film follows Josh (Ben Stiller) and a small group of employees at a high-rise luxury apartment building who are fired from their jobs after losing their pensions in a scam run by their boss, businessman Arthur Shaw (a wonderfully sleazy Alan Alda), who is under house-arrest by the FBI for fraud. They hatch a plot to recoup the lost cash with a smash and grab raid on Shaw's penthouse suite, guarded by FBI agents, where they believe he may have concealed up to $20 million in cash. To this end, Josh recruits the help of petty criminal Slide (Eddie Murphy), his neighbour and once friend from daycare.

In fact, thankfully Tower Heist is nothing at all like Ocean's Eleven. These men are average Joes; out of a job, down on their luck, and attempting to reclaim what is rightfully theirs, and in this they have the full sympathy of the viewing audience. They are totally out of their depth when it comes to planning a robbery and the very opposite of smart and slick. Much of the comedy is of the `fish out of water' variety, centering on the clear ineptitude of the gang as would-be criminals, as they attempt to transform themselves from professional servitude to professional thievery. This premise yields a number of very funny moments, which I will not spoil by describing here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable crime caper
Very enjoyable to watch and a great buy at 3. Not as good as Hustle (but nice twists), not as funny as other Murphy or Stiller films, chuckles rather than laugh out loud. Read more
