Movie synopsis
Directed by Brett Ratner, director of " Rush Hour" and " Rush Hour 2" fame, "Tower Heist" is a two-disc set with an all-star cast led by international comedy king Eddie Murphy, starring as Slide. Ben Stiller stars alongside Murphy in this action comedy as a man determined to get some much-deserved revenge on the wealthy man who cheated him and his hard-working friends out of their life savings by stripping their pensions. In "Tower Heist", this ramshackle team of buddies decide exact their revenge by robbing the wealthy man's high-rise fortress. They hire Slide to help them get past the extensive tower security to reach the millions the fraudster has hidden in his penthouse suite. Also starring Tea Leoni, Casey Affleck, and new star Gabourey Sidibe of "Precious", "Tower Heist" combines the best elements of the action comedy genre. The "Tower Heist" special edition two-disc set contains bonus features and behind-the-scenes footage that will give viewers insight into the film. It offers viewers both DVD and high-definition Blu-ray formats, as well as a digital copy., The workers at a posh Central Park condominium plot to steal back their pensions from the thieving Wall Street billionaire who's about to get away with the ultimate white-collar crime in this heist comedy starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. Financial giant Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) has just been placed under house arrest in his luxury New York City penthouse for cleaning out his investors to the tune of two billion dollars. Meanwhile, on the complete opposite end of the financial spectrum, Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) earns a modest living as the manager of The Tower -- the luxurious building where Shaw resides. Upon learning that the building staffers who entrusted Shaw with their retirement funds are about to lose their life savings, and that the thief will likely get off scot-free, Josh convinces a small group of Tower employees and a downtrodden former resident that Shaw has stashed a million-dollar safety net somewhere in his opulent penthouse, and that it's theirs for the taking if they can just slip past security. With dim-witted concierge Charlie (Casey Affleck), under-educated electrical engineer Enrique (Michael Pe�a), safecracking maid Odessa (Gabourey Sidibe) and downtrodden former resident Mr. Fitzhugh (Matthew Broderick) to back him, Josh recruits crafty swindler Slide (Eddie Murphy) to help get their money back. Although the security in Arthur's condo is unusually tight, between Josh's knowledge of the building and Slide's sleight of hand, this ragtag gang of thieves just might have what it takes to get the job done.

Editorial reviews

"Leoni can be tough and loopy at the same time, an extraordinary combination....Broderick makes a great deadpan sadsack..."
Movieline - Stephanie Zacharek (11/03/2011)

4 stars out of 5 -- "Eddie Murphy is back in top form, reason alone to see TOWER HEIST, a highly entertaining and heartfelt action comedy..."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (11/03/2011)

3 stars out of 5 -- "It's got everything a comedy needs: space for the characters to breathe, good lines, and the pleasure of watching a marquee cast amiably goofing around..."
Total Film - Matt Glasby (01/01/2012)

"The film has considerable polish with cinematographer Dante Spinotti clever eye and a crack creative crew....With palm-sweating visual effects."
Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey (11/04/2011)

"Snappy, well cast and streetwise....Shot sharply by Dante Spinotti and goosed by a zippy score from Christophe Beck..."
Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy (10/31/2011)

Good movie, Poor ending

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

By the time Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) was charged with running a billion-dollar Ponzi scheme, it was already too late for the authorities to find the fortune that he had ostensibly hidden in offshore accounts. As a condition of being released on bail before trial, he was ordered kept under house arrest in his luxury penthouse at The Tower, an exclusive high-rise located on Central Park West.
While this development might have prevented the arrogant embezzler from becoming a fugitive of justice, it simultaneously left him surrounded by some of those he’d swindled. For, not only had he stolen from the wealthy, but he had also talked the staff at The Tower into trusting him with all the assets in their pension fund.
Consequently, the callous con man’s victims include building manager Josh (Ben Stiller), Lester the doorman (Stephen Henderson), Enrique the bellhop (Michael Pena), Odessa the housekeeper (Gabourey Sidibe), Charlie the concierge (Casey Affleck) and bankrupt, fellow resident Mr. Fitzhugh (Matthew Broderick).
Reluctant to let Shaw walk away with their money, the group hatches a plan to take the law into its own hands, since they suspect that the remorseless embezzler has stashed about $20 million in cash somewhere in his condo. So, Josh asks a motor-mouthed petty thief (Eddie Murphy) to join the conspiracy, for help robbing the apartment right under the nose of the accused who’s restricted to the premises, 24-7.
This is the promising premise of Tower Heist, the latest buddy comedy directed by Brett Ratner. While the teaming of Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller doesn’t come close to matching the inspired, screen chemistry of Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan in Ratner’s Rush Hour trilogy, the talented twosome nevertheless manage to generate enough laughs, with the help of a colorful support cast, to make you forgive the fact that the crime caper grows increasingly improbable the further the film unfolds.
Was a good movie but the ending could have been better.

Tower Heist

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is a nice twist on the heist genre with a couple of bumbling idiots who wouldn't be able to steal a stick of bubble gum much less steal money getting all together to make a truly funny experience.

This movie is very funny. Obviously all of the big names here are all comedy veterans: Stiller is a joke a minute, Broderick has always been good in whatever role he's been given, Michael Pena is a good and up coming actor,but probably the biggest surprise here has to be Eddie Murphy.

There are a lot of funny scenes in this movie that everybody will have a favorite one. I personally like the "mall scene" early in the movie when Slide enlists the guys to rob things from the mall to show if they really have it in them to steal something.

Tower Heist Tumbles to pure DUDS-VILLE

No, I would not recommend this product.

This dud of an action-comedy can't decide if it's supposed to be funny or exciting and winds up as neither. With the actors in it I was sure it would have to be better but I was so disappointed. A complete waste of time and talent. Eddie Murphy is terrible. He's forgotten how to be funny as he's aged with the same tired schtick. This used up heist concept; an unfunny ensemble of pieces that don't fit together in any way isn't funny, and sure isn't entertaining. I couldn't wait for it to end. The only surprise is how poor a film these once talented actors could make. It's a bomb. Choose another film. This one is terrible.

Good hardy entertainment. It's not a stake sandwich, but satisfying fun.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Tower Heist (Blu-ray/DVD, 2012, 2-Disc Set, Special Edition; Includes Digital Copy; UltraViolet)

It's sort of the suburban version of and anti-Bond film. Instead of the OSS agent having all the savvy, it's the hotel manager.

This was a fun romp, a bit predictable, yet good clean entertainment. It has some very witty moments.

I enjoyed it. Ben Stiller is sort of like a cheeseburger, you know what you're going to get before you buy one. Sure it's not a stake sandwich, but satisfying all the same.

You end up rooting for Stiller and his gang.

Cheers and Blessings, Max Rainet.

I have never seen this movie. I was really supprised to find how good the movie was. It is an original DVD, no knock off. The only thing was I think that Eddie Murphy really didn't have a role in this movie. They could have done without him. He is too big of a star for such a small role.

The DVD works like brained new, cause it is.
