The movie Tower Heist is sooo freaking funny. I was laughing my butt off the whole time. This movie is full of funny and some high action and some good acting. When you pack a movie this full of celebrities and comedians, you shouldn't expect any less. I will say that there were a couple of jokes that were a little on the inappropriate side and a bunch of mild swearing for anyone who is turned off by that.
Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) is the manager of a million dollar tower estate. He makes sure everything goes well for the people who live there, including the multi-millionair Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda). His staff include his brother-in-law Charlie (Casey Affleck), elevator operator Enrique (Michael Pena), his doorman Lester (Stephen Henderson), a maid Odessa (Gabourey Sidibe), and many others. Some of the Tower's residents, like Mr. Fitzhugh (Matthew Broderick) are falling on hard times because of the downed economy. This also includes Mr. Shaw, who is caught by the FBI for swindling many people, including the pension fund of the Tower's workers. Everyone is hit hard and the doorman Lester takes it really hard and tries to commit suicide. This makes Josh really mad and him and Charlie and Enrique go to confront Mr. Shaw. Mr. Shaw doesn't really feel remorseful and so Josh beats up Mr. Shaw's prized car. This gets the three workers fired. Well Josh decides that he is going to steal the 20 million dollars Shaw has hiding in his penthouse. To do this, he Slide (Eddie Murphy) to help him. They devise a big plan to get the 20 million and set it in motion.
This movie is sooo fun and has a bunch of twists and turns that keep you guessing. There is also a big surprise when the go looking for the money. I highly recommend this movie! Rated PG-13 for language and sexual content.
