Deadspin

It is a heist movie that doesn't care about the heist.

The one-liners pop and the cast delivers.

All corners of the oddball comedy genre are squarely covered in a way that somehow seems fresh despite the well tried-and-tested formula.

What we end up with is a film that will have you laughing all the way through while at the same time reminding you that some talent never goes away, it just hibernates in smaller or inferior movies for awhile before that right project reaches them.

We Got This Covered

Tower Heist is too much fun too dislike. It may not be the smartest or even the funniest film of the year, but it does feature one very entertaining ensemble that makes for a great ride.

Feels more like a droll drama than an actual comedy, and it could have worked on those merits, but the stilted comedic asides rob the film of genuine weight.

A funny, if farfetched, revenge fantasy for folks bilked by the likes of Bernie Madoff.

IGN DVD

Tower Heist succeeds because of Eddie Murphy's snarky performance, and fun turns from the rest of the cast. But the heist itself is a little dumb and the story is riddled with plot holes.

Occupy this: A feisty and funny heist movie with a nice turn by some guy named Eddie Murphy.

It's the Occupy Movement ethos via a comedy crime caper.

The movie is no fun, except when Murphy is around, which isn't nearly enough.

One can't help but feel there must have been a little more meat on the bones of the script at some point.

A thoroughly entertaining heist movie with enough ballast to make it real, and also enough comedy to make it a great entertainment

A casual heist movie that's played for laughs, not smarts.

Mike Scott
Times-Picayune

A just-for-fun, feel-good people's picture -- and and one that never gets on its high horse and preaches to get there.

Fan The Fire

The presence of an almost sleepwalking Eddie Murphy as a motor mouth criminal simply adds to the sense of resources neglected.

PopMatters

The heist of the film's title is thus premised on a desire for revenge that seems timely, but is more formulaic.

On the plus side, 'Tower Heist' has a well-cast ensemble and makes great use of its mid-Manhattan location, including an incursion into the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...
