...certainly not the flat-out disaster it's been made out to be.

It is in fact consistently adequate and, in places, achieves nothing short of above-averageness.

Black and Stiller have an appealing chemistry.

This quirky modern-day fable from Barry Levinson is the kind of movie you appreciate more than enjoy.

It's a little like slugs starring in a movie about salt.

'Envy' may not be a likeable or entirely amusing flick, but it's an intriguing dark comedy with an important lesson about the green-eyed monster within us all.

I choose to see Envy's nigh-nonsensical weirdness as wit rather than ineptitude, and will continue to do so until Levinson comes to my house and calls himself an idiot.

Charlie Kaufman possibly could have uncovered this story's true smugness. Instead, Jack Black and Ben Stiller exaggerate what works about their styles to the point of annoyance in a can't-miss misfire akin to John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd's "Neighbors."

Here's my pitch for a product. A spray that causes really bad movies to vaporize into air.

Barry Levinson's career slump continues apace with a wannabe black comedy that's neither dark nor funny.

With so many dubious elements at play, even the half-good ideas get lost in the shuffle.

Envy crawls to its finish through a minefield of poor taste and comedic misfires.

I don't think any critic could have predicted a turkey like this based on the immense level of talent that is involved here.

A primary plot device involves the literal beating of a dead horse -- would they just like to write the reviews for us?

Not quite as good as it should have been, despite spirited performances from Black and Stiller and Christopher Walken on top crazy bonkers mental form.

Featuring two of America's most successful comic actors, you'd think it'd be hilarious. Think again.

The differing styles of the two comedians never meld, but the script is so flabby even an industrial crane couldn't lift it.
