The one-liners pop and the cast delivers.

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.

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.

Occupy this: A feisty and funny heist movie with a nice turn by some guy named Eddie Murphy.

It's the Occupy Movement ethos via a comedy crime caper.

Tower Heist is an entertaining crime comedy that features solid popcorn filmmaking from Brett Ratner and a big time cast having fun.

A thoroughly entertaining heist movie with enough ballast to make it real, and also enough comedy to make it a great entertainment

Brilliantly executed with hilarious ideas and a first-class cast, Tower Heist is a sparkling and original caper
Anders Wotzke

A casual heist movie that's played for laughs, not smarts.

A just-for-fun, feel-good people's picture -- and and one that never gets on its high horse and preaches to get there.

As a special message from me to Eddie, I really missed you. Welcome back.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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.

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 ...
