Envy Reviews

March 5, 2007
With so many dubious elements at play, even the half-good ideas get lost in the shuffle.
March 5, 2007
Envy crawls to its finish through a minefield of poor taste and comedic misfires.
May 4, 2004
Ultimately more amusing than hilarious, and sometimes less than that.
May 3, 2004
... one of the worst comedies I've ever seen.
April 30, 2004
For an alleged comedy with such star power, Envy reeks enough to wish there was a vaporizer that would make it magically disappear.
April 30, 2004
One of those cinematic curiosities that almost always fade quickly.
April 30, 2004
Envy can't decide whether to be an eccentric black comedy or a middle-of-the-road diversion.
April 30, 2004
Envy manages the not unimpressive feat of making just about everyone in it look they wish they were somewhere else.

The film is neither fish nor fowl nor some arresting new entity, but a lumpish coagulation of conflicting impulses and unrealized gestures.

Envy is not something you should feel for anyone who happens to see Envy. Pity, in truth, would be more appropriate.

Far too much of it is unfunny.

The movie is funny, yes, but not really funny enough.

April 30, 2004
A couple of moments amuse, but Envy doesn't really work as a comedy -- or as anything else for that matter.

A woeful little comedy that runs out of steam shortly after its opening sequence.

An unusually static affair.

Envy isn't a comedy so much as a welter of mugging, pratfalls and goofy attitudes struggling to coalesce into a comedy.

Barry Levinson's attempt to match the Farrelly Brother in adolescent goofiness has its laughs, but it's really a movie that's afraid of itself.

April 29, 2004
The low-key picture gets by on the genial charisma of its cast, but it fails to rise to the occasion when it comes to building to a necessary comic pitch.
April 29, 2004
Everyone involved in Envy has done better work before. Envy isn't good for them or us.

A forced and flaccid affair.

April 29, 2004
What's frustrating about the half-cocked comedy that follows is that it contains so many inspired moments and offers plenty of laughs, yet suffers from the lack of a unifying directorial intelligence.
April 29, 2004
A shaggy dog-poop story that'll make you wish you could spray something at the screen to make it disappear.

I giggled, with a level of disbelief verging on awe, at the notion that people actually woke up each morning to shoot this movie thinking that they were engaged in an act of entertainment (or sanity).

Our primary companion on this trip is Ben Stiller's Tim Dingman, a character so annoying that I kept wishing he would be vapoorized.
