'Tower Heist' review - Wow, Eddie Murphy is funny again

How the hell do you get Steve McQueen’s red Farrari out of the top of Trump Tower? That’s the conundrum facing Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in Tower Heist. Their solution doesn’t make much sense, but it’s as practical as movies like these get. No one moment of Brett Ratner’s new comedy heist will blow you away, but it’s a surprisingly consistent and funny movie. And hey, it’s the first time Eddie Murphy has been funny outside a Shrek movie in more than a decade. Now that’s worth celebrating.

TAKERS is one shaky mess of a heist (review)

Rating:  (Bad)

I saw Takers with a theater full of rowdy, loud women. Midnight showings often bring out the dedicated and hardcore, but these ladies came to see one man. No, not heartthrob Paul Walker, not Michael Ealy, not T.I. They came to see Chris Brown. The moment Brown hit the screen, all I could hear were "woo"s, "aww yeahs", and "mmm mmm"s. Pretty hilarious, really. The ladies made the same sounds later on when Idris Elba (Stringer Bell from The Wire) got out of bed in his underwear. This was not a quiet experience at the theater. 

It's fitting that Takers is about as overblown as its audience. Like all urban heists, all the pieces are in place.
