Enjoyable movie - Alan Alda played a good sleazebag antagonist. Not a GREAT movie, but a pleasant watch that we both enjoyed.
Normally I don't like Ben Stiller movies but this one wasn't too bad, I think Eddie Murphy made it better. Worth a watch for a lazy Saturday
Good fun movie. Would recommend. It was recommended to me.
this movie was better than i thought it would be, i was pleasantly surprised & thoroughly enjoyed it.
Funny with some good twists. Had very low expectations so was pleasantly surprised
Funny film, okay to watch but nothing outstanding. Not Ben Stiller's best film.
This movie was not what we expected it to be. Funnier than thought.
Unfortunately this disc skipped so much we were unable to watch it.
was expecting something better. It was ok - I didn't hate it
not as good as i thought it would be, a good sunday arvo movie
A plausably ridiculous storyline, good casting; all in all, a well executed light hearted romp; what more do you want from a weekend movie?
Great, light hearted movie with a wonderful ending
Started out well, but has a plot that has been rehashed.
Good cast. Funny with a serious side. Nice movie to watch with friends but not for the young ones as 'comedy violence' may be damaging for the little ones.
Enjoyed the movie when it finally started. Lead in advertising and trailers were excessive to the extreme.
Great movie, did enjoy very much.
A bit slow to start while the plot and characters was set up. Certainly implausible plot with impossible activities, however we don't watch comedy's to have realism, just an entertaining story. It does have that. Not one of the best movies we have seen, but we enjoyed it.
Light-hearted heist about a group of ordinary workers who take revenge on the mega-wealthy person who swindled them. It's a serious subject done with humour, but the implausible plot is full of holes. The characters are not very believable either, but you can empathise with them. Eddie Murphy works best in a tight role such as this. This is light entertainment that won't tax the viewer.
Fun at times with some good actors. Wew enjoyed the movie.
Good watch - humerous crime - enjoyed it.
Was really looking forward to this film. Had a great cast. However it was much darker than expected. Still it was entertaining enough to view.
I love it when the underdogs take charge and stick it up filthy rich.
Not bad. Been done before. Little bit far fetched.
A star studded cast about a narcissistic, psychopathic millionaire who has made his millions through a ponzi scheme. Guess which US real life character this is based on. Anyway, after losing their pensions to this character, played by Alan Alda,the employees decide to get revenge. You know they are going to succeed and the movie will never win any awards but it is good fun. Plenty of holes in the plot but well worth watching, especially if you have lost money to one of these types. Revenge feels good.
great movie, saw some of the Eddie Murphie of old (or should I say young). Ben Stiller is always a classic
A funny light hearted comedy but if you want an ending that is feasible you will be disappointed. Check your brain at the door and just enjoy the ride.
Awsome movie, just loved it and would watch again. Its a little light hearted yes, no great sinister plot or roll around comedy involved but great entertainment, Classic Ben Stiller - Watch it for sure people!!! Brillant cast.
Not outstanding, but easy to watch and entertaining.
Not what I was expecting at all. This is not a laugh out loud comedy but it is a good movie. The whole idea of what they are trying to do is good. A few funny parts but generally I just enjoyed this movie and was not bored at any time. Worth a look.
not as funny as its made out but still worth a look
Some great stunts,lots of laughs and some new twists in a well made movie. I enjoyed it more than I expected,most of the family can watch,a great movie.
A fun movie for those who don't take life too seriously.
The cast is appealing but this movie is really, really bad. Worst movie I have seen in a while.
Run of the mill crime job film with enough gags and twists to keep you buoyant and bothered to watch it to the end.
Quietly funny, until Eddie Murphy arrives, when it becomes laugh out loud funny. Good story. Good characters. Ben Stiller is quite bareable in this.
excellant movie fast paced with a good storey line highly recomend
this was a great movie i really enjoyed it definaltely worth watching
Excellent movie. No blood & guts, swearing or debauchery.
Solid cast, but what a disappointing movie! The story seemed to go nowhere and there were very few real laughs.
It was a good movie that moved along well with good performances. It was interesting to see Matthew Broderick have another run in with a red ferrari! The ending may have not been terribly realistic, but hey, it's a movie.
Nope, absolute rubbish! I thought I'd give it a chance, but my wife and I were ready to turn this off after the scene in the bar... completely ridiculous, even Ben Stiller is better than this.
not a big fan of Ben Stiller but i quite enjoyed this,funny in places.
Really enjoyed this movie. Very entertaining and some good actors. I would recommend people to watch this one.
Hotel manager wants to get his retirement funds back and all those that he works with. Alan Alda is creepy as the bad guy who stole their money and the heist itself is filled with lots of laughs. There is a little bit of romance and the characters are unlikely but believeable. The whole movie ends too abruptly for me but then I always like seeing the underdog win.
Bit disappointing. I fell asleep. All the funny bits were in the promo.
Loved it - funny and just well done. Enjoyable film.
REally good fun movie :-) I loved it!!
I'm intrigued to see so many good reviews -- this film sets itself up as a "Mission:Impossible" clone, but gets bogged down in character development (not usually a bad thing, unless you're expecting action!). The heist itself isn't clever, and you won't see any fabulous stunts. A well rounded film, but essentially dull.
Very enjoyable flick. Great cast (good to see Alan Alda again, and with a role that was a good fit). Lots of laughs and entertainment. Enough depth in the storyline to be interesting but not so much that you have to 'work' - just sit back and enjoy :)
Same formula as the Oceans Trilogy, it has a great cast and fun storyline. Eddie Murphy back in form with his Trading Places/48 Hours style crookster and Ben Stiller as the "mastermind" are the standouts in this cast of whacky characters. Definitely worth viewing.
brilliant movie, a must see
A perfect blend of humour and suspense. Great to see Eddie Murphy in a rewarding role for a change and loved the in-jokes (Feris Buelleer, French Connection etc).
Fantastic movie hubby and I laughed and enjoyed it alot. A Must See :0
Not a bad movie fun in parts.
There's a bit of forgettable fun to be had here, but the laughs didn't start until about two-thirds of the way through, particularly when Eddie Murphy finally makes his appearance. He's funnier here than he's been in a long while. Overall a very silly movie with a syrupy ending, but as I said, fun to be had for the most part.
An entirely unlikely scenario, but that's what makes it fun to watch. The movie is never dull or boring and oddly is even serious at times, especially at first before the heist really gets going.
When a group of hard working guys find out they've fallen victim to a wealthy business man's Ponzi scheme, they conspire to rob his high-rise residence. What a hoot this film. Enjoyable popcorn movie.
Promised more than it delivered.
started disappointing for like 30mins... got better after awhile but not as good as expected... only a few laughs and they were only the ones that most people would have seen on the adds i expected more... but movie is good once it gets into the heist...
Very disappointed. Few funny lines here and there, but not as good as I'd hoped.
Great movie. Recommended viewing we haven't laughed so much in a movie for a long time
Boring first half and only marginally better when the action heist finally begins, Eddie Murphy hard to understand as always
