Consensus: Tower Heist is a true Brett Ratner joint: little brains to this caper, but it's fun fluff, exciting to watch, and showcases a welcome return to form for Eddie Murphy.

On the plus side, 'Tower Heist' has a well-cast ensemble and makes great use of its mid-Manhattan location, including an incursion into the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...

So what if it's sheer petty escapist enjoyment? Tower Heist delivers the laughs in desperate times.

'Tower Heist' is a low-rent payback caper involving the staff of the titular high-rent tower. It's Donald Trump's Tower. Oddly, The Donald doesn't have a cameo.

Fun movie with some rather funny scenes. Decent cast. Not the best movie, but definitely nothing too much to complain about.
<b>Tower Heist</b> had a great cast of actors to be such a bad film. I guess I expected more considering the actors the film had lined up. The movie… More

For a breezy, star studded crime caper comedy, I didn't expect this to have the amount of genuine suspense that it did. Seriously, this one had my… More
