Tower Heist (2011) – Brett Ratner

Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Alan Alda, Judd Hersch and Casey Affleck are in this movie. All of those people are funny. Yet, there is not a single laugh in Tower Heist, a supposed comedy about hotel employees robbing a resident who ponzied them out of their pensions. Not one. Not a single chuckle, no solitary guffaws, not one spit take. The closest we got was a bemused exhale about 40% into the picture. It was the high point.
