When Alan Alda’s Madoff-esque fat cat character absconds with the pensions of all his professional slaves, Ben Stiller rises to action. He bands together with the former employees to infiltrate his penthouse fortress to try to take what belongs to them. Hence, The Tower Heist.
Movies like New Year’s Eve should take note. THIS is how you make a comedy with an ensemble cast. You use likable actors like Matthew Broderick. That way, audiences are happy and the Broderick-Parker children are still fed. Everyone wins!!
