Tower Heist would be well received at any “Occupy Event” currently happening in NYC or anywhere else in the country. It’s a caper film about working folks who are bilked in a ponzi scheme by a Wall Street investor (Alan Alda). The working class clients, who are robbed of all their life savings, plot a scheme of their own to get back the money that was stolen from them.
Ben Stiller plays Josh Kovacks, the manager of the opulent hotel tower housing the Bernie Madoff wanna be. Eddie Murphy is Slide, a petty thief who trains Josh’s team to “storm the castle” and rob the impenetrable penthouse apartment. Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick and Michael Pena round out the rest of Josh’s crew. All turn in fine supporting roles that keep the movie rolling. Gabby Sidibe (“Precious”) is also part of the ensemble cast. She plays a Jamaican maid who joins the team when they need a specialist to assist with the robbery.
The Chemistry between the cast is terrific. Especially the teaming of Stiller with Murphy. The movie is directed by Brett Ratner who directed the “Rush Hour” series. There is definitely a “Jackie Chan-Chris Tucker vibe” between the two lead actors.
Tower Heist is outrageously funny. Eddie Murphy’s character could be Reggie Hammond (‘82’s movie-48 Hours) 30 years later and all grown up. It is a fun movie with plenty of action and non-stop laughing. This movie is rated PG-13 for some foul language.Tower Heist is a must see so go check it out.

Universal has released a concluding theatrical trailer on Yahoo for the ensemble comedy Little Fockers, directed by Paul Weitz, due out this holiday season. I truly hate this franchise so I’m attempting to prevent too much of my own point of view from leaking into this, but at times I can’t help it. Little Fockers stars most of the original cast as well as a few income-hungry newcomers, including: Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand, Jessica Alba and Laura Dern. I watched the entire trailer and didn’t seem to be funny at all. But if this is your kind of comedy, then enjoy!
Little Fockers is directed by Oscar nominated (for co-writing About a Boy) American filmmaker Paul Weitz, of American Pie, Down to Earth, About a Boy, In Good Company, American Dreamz and Cirque du Freak previously. The screenplay was written by John Hamburg (Meet the Parents, Zoolander, Along Came Polly, Meet the Fockers, I Love You Man) & Larry Stuckey (Me, My Friend and I) and is the latest sequel keeping up with Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers from 2000 and 2004, respectively. Universal is distributing the film, which is a DreamWorks SKG production dry humor and not funny. LittleFockers will hit theaters on December 22nd this fall.

This Christmas… We hope you don’t see this. After Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers, we thought that “franchise” had wrapped up, but they’re back, all of them: Robert De Niro to Ben Stiller to Owen Wilson to Dustin Hoffman to Barbra Streisand as well as newcomers like Jessica Alba and Laura Dern. Universal has debuted the first teaser trailer for Little Fockers on Apple today. As expected, the logical progression of the Focker family is to raise two five-year old twins in a film that revolves around the couple trying to cope with raising their children. I’m not a fan of this series so I don’t have much to say, but heck it out anyway!
