Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in Universal Pictures' Tower Heist - 2011

Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) is the manager of The Tower, a luxury Central Park condominium complex. He has secured the building for 10 years and nothing goes unnoticed.

When he and his workers discover they are all swindled out of their retirement investment (sounds like ponzi scheme to me) by billionaire Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) who lives in the penthouse of The Tower, they plan their revenge.

Kovacs and his staff at The Tower turn to Slide (Eddie Murphy) whom they know is a petty thief and has been in jail several times for his crimes, is asked to help pull off the perfect crime. Even though they are amateurs, Kovacs and crew know the building top to bottom.

Matthew Broderick plays Mr. Fitzhugh, a resident of the building, who is broke because he lost his money on Wall Street, and is facing eviction. Tea Leoni, plays a female FBI agent and Gabourney Sidibe, from the movie Precious, plays a Jamaican maid who can crack a safe open in no time.

This movie was directed by Brett Ratner. It was written by Ted Gaffin, Jeff Nathanson, Adam Cooper, Bill Collage and Ted Griffin. Bill Carraro, Brian Grazer, Karen Kehela Sherwood, Eddie Murphy and Kim Roth served as producers of the film.

Tower Heist actually takes place in Donald Trump's residence in New York City. He has a nice pool on the roof of the building. Other scenes were recorded at the Goldwater Memorial Hospital in NYC and the Toys R Us in Times Square.

This film is fun and has lots of comedic misadventures. I enjoyed it a lot.

OVERALL RATING: A
