A just-for-fun, feel-good people's picture -- and and one that never gets on its high horse and preaches to get there.
November 19, 2011
As a special message from me to Eddie Murphy...man, 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.
November 17, 2011
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.
November 15, 2011
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.
November 14, 2011
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 ...
November 10, 2011
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.
November 8, 2011
[A] genially absurd, gently cathartic, and slightly stale Brett Ratner caper...
November 8, 2011
...laugh out loud funny.
November 7, 2011
A funny, if farfetched, revenge fantasy for folks bilked by the likes of Bernie Madoff.
November 7, 2011
Good for one or two genuine laughs.
November 7, 2011
Filled with a great cast, twists and turns at every corner and lots of humor, Tower Heist is thoroughly entertaining.
November 7, 2011
Not entirely cringeworthy.

Old school Eddie Murphy, where have you been?
November 6, 2011
The characters are far more interesting than the actual heist that eats up the final portion of the film, so it's a good thing we're allowed to spend plenty of time getting to know them during the first hour.
November 6, 2011
Time killer passable entertainment.

'Tower Heist,' despite its sometimes clunky plotting, strikes me as a surefire crowd-pleaser. It's certainly a damn sight more entertaining than the summer's superhero attractions.
