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...

A score-one-for-the-little-guys triumph that finds a funny bone inside the modern-day muscle spasms of the financial agonies that have spread from Wall Street onto Main Street.

A throwback to the class-conscious wish-fulfillment comedies of the Depression, this goofy escapist farce is more useful than the earnest 'Margin Call' as a response to economic injustice.

There's really no reason to go see Tower Heist when you can watch Ocean's Eleven on TNT again.

The film is armed with an amazing cast, and while not the greatest heist story ever told, the bottom line is that Tower Heist is a lot of fun.

It is like a less funny 'Office Space' with bigger stakes. The fun becomes a little ordinary, but the likeability of the cast keeps it entertaining.

After starting out with a very slow pace, this heist film makes up for it during an exciting and unusual robbery caper.

I'm not sure this represents a step up from anything we would have gotten from Rush Hour 4.

Eddie Murphy returns to comedic form in Tower Heist but his character, and the movie in general, lose their sense of humor.

As heist movies go, Tower Heist is pretty tame - we aren't talking Ocean's Eleven here - but the comedy element is better than expected ...

A timely action-comedy caper whose undertow of blue-collar bitterness and anger will strike a chord with anyone who's fallen foul of these credit-crunched times.

Eddie Murphy is back and in fine form, but then the entire cohesive cast is at its best.

[A] genially absurd, gently cathartic, and slightly stale Brett Ratner caper...

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

Filled with a great cast, twists and turns at every corner and lots of humor, Tower Heist is thoroughly entertaining.
