[6.25/10] Tower Heist (2011)

Tower Heist (2011)

Yes, it's absurd, but who cares really? "Tower Heist" is clever, funny and exciting and will hold your interest from the first to the last minute, thanks to Ratner's briskly engaging direction and the surprisingly amusing script that full of jokes and hilarious situations. It's also a "welcome return" for Eddie Murphy, but it's Gabourey Sidibe that really steals the show.
Pure escapism, and arguably one of the better comedies of the past year.

I loved this movie! I laughed out loud the entire time. Eddie was spot on and Gabby was amazing.

Mel, I didn't necessarily loved it, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Gabby stole the show for me - she was LOL-funny! Eddie Murphy is a hit'n'miss comedian for me, but he delivered this time around. ;)

Made me laugh and held my interest more than it should have, given how sloppy it is. Call it an acceptable bit of B-minus work from a C student. Good review George. Eddie really had me laughing here but he wasn't the only one.

Dan, thanks. Well, this isn't exactly a review, as it's pretty short, but let's call it a mini one :) Yep, same here. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
