Critics Consensus: Tower Heist is Solid Escapism
This week at the movies, we've got a crime caper (Tower Heist, starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy) and yuletide merriment (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, starring John Cho and Kal Penn). What do the critics have to say? If you're in the market for a solid, escapist escapade, critics say Tower Heist should do the trick -- just don't expect much more from this all-star action comedy. Christmas may more than a month away, but your old buddies Harold and Kumar are ready to spread some holiday cheer -- and critics say A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is delightfully outrageous and occasionally heartfelt.
