Fun, fast-paced popcorn entertainment that works reasonably well as long as you avoid thinking about how patently ridiculous it is.

When Murphy is on screen, Tower Heist really sizzles. But even when Murphy isn't around, Tower Heist is still good enough to satisfy moviegoers looking for a mildly entertaining comic diversion.

No, it's not A Beautiful Mind, but it's a wildly entertaining and funny movie.

The particulars of the smash'n'grab are so ridiculous - just how do you swipe a priceless car from a 50th floor apartment? - you just have to keep watching to see how they are going to pull it off.

A poor man's version of Ocean's 11.

Let's just get this off our chests right now: Tower Heist is not a great movie.

This action comedy's heart is in the right place, but its screenplay and direction are not.

'Tower Heist' is a low-rent payback caper involving the staff of the titular high-rent tower. It's Donald Trump's Tower. Oddly, The Donald doesn't have a cameo.

A crappy Hollywood blockbuster for the Occupy movement.
June 23, 2013
It is a heist movie that doesn't care about the heist.

The one-liners pop and the cast delivers.
September 25, 2012
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.

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.
February 23, 2012
A funny, if farfetched, revenge fantasy for folks bilked by the likes of Bernie Madoff.

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.
January 27, 2012
The movie moves well, had plenty of bright spots and never bores, and by the time it was over I couldn't help but smile.

Occupy this: A feisty and funny heist movie with a nice turn by some guy named Eddie Murphy.
December 29, 2011
It's the Occupy Movement ethos via a comedy crime caper.
