Total Recall: Ben Stiller's Best Movies


Though he's primarily known for playing guys who have a hard time doing anything right, Ben Stiller is one of the most successful talents in Hollywood -- a writer/director/actor whose occasional wanderings into critically rotten territory haven't put a dent into his incredible bankability. Stiller's films have grossed more than $2.1 billion, a total that includes the more than $800 million racked up by Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers -- and with the third installment in the franchise, Little Fockers, arriving in theaters this weekend, we decided now would be the perfect time to take a look back at his critical highlights. (Spoiler alert: Envy will not be covered.) It's time for another round of Total Recall! Back to Article

I loved "Zoolander". I was shocked to see it didn't make top ten. Maybe because Owen Wilson was in it. Why he drags that piece of dead meat around is beyond me.

I didn't find ยจ"tropic thunder" funny at all... A real bore in fact...

"Zoolander" was clearly infinitely better than "tropic Thunder". But what about "Mystery Men"? I thought it was entertaining and well-written, and the crucially important main villain was a lot better played, and more convincing, than many "real" supervillains (Like Spiderman's ridiculous-looking "Green Gobblin" for instance), as was Ben Stiller's love interest, the "Sphinx", the sponsor-ridden Champion City "superhero", Captain Amazing I think his name was, "Invisible Boy", and a lot of others characters, themes and sub-plots... Some of the dialogues in there are truly superior comedy in my opinion, and much of it is truly character-driven...

I think Along Came Polly and The Heartbreak Kid are hilarious. It seems like I'm the only one who does...
