Envy

Critics Consensus

Jack Black and Ben Stiller fail to wring laughs from a script that's essentially one extended poop joke.

Movie Info

Tim (Ben Stiller) has a chance to invest in Vapoorizer, the latest harebrained venture by his friend Nick (Jack Black). While the details are sketchy, Nick claims it's a chemical that can make any substance disappear. Not expecting Vapoorizer to amount to much, Tim declines -- only to watch the product become enormously profitable. While Tim's life falls apart, Nick's gets better, leading to an unspoken tension between the pair, until the mysterious J-Man (Christopher Walken) gets involved.

Audience Reviews for Envy

  • Jan 12, 2012
    Despite the line-up, Envy was a near complete failure. It had a story to keep it going, but it wasn't a very good story, and despite Ben Stiller and casts best efforts, it landed in theaters with a thud. It was so hard, it didn't even bounce. Not even a cult following. Even though there are some funny moments, there just aren't enough to make the movie work.

    this is one of those films that should of been released direct to dvd. this was a turkey and only received a release due to stiller and blacks talents. the story is bland and i didn't remember even smiling or laughing, stay clear of this

    It was badly written, could've been SO MUCH better with all the casts they got. None of the jokes are funny, the acting was also very awful. Forgettable.
