Tower Heist

Keep your brain in neutral and there is much to enjoy in this larky caper starring Ben Stiller

Keep your brain in neutral and there is much to enjoy in this larky caper starring Ben Stiller.

The staff of a swanky New York apartment block are left penniless when penthouse resident Alan Alda makes off with their retirement fund, so building manager Stiller plots revenge.

He gathers a motley gang, including his concierge brother-in-law Casey Affleck, naive bellhop Michael Peña, unemployed financier Matthew Broderick and motor-mouthed thief Eddie Murphy, to put a cunning plan into action.

Téa Leoni is the FBI agent breathing down their necks and Steve McQueen’s old Ferrari also has a crucial part to play.
