Continuing the newfound tradition of aggressive, unabashed title straightforwardness seen in the likes of Cowboys and Aliens and Horrible Bosses, greasy Brett Ratner's Tower Heist is, naturally, a film about a tower heist. More specifically, it's about a tower heist committed by Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Michael Pena, Casey Affleck, and Precious, who play tower employees wronged by tower resident Alan Alda--a Bernie Madoff-style a-hole suspected of hiding a vast fortune in his tower penthouse. In Brett Ratner's ultimate betrayal to Chris Tucker, Eddie Murphy also stars, playing a recently-released convict Stiller employs to be all sassy and help out with the finer points of theft.
Here's the trailer. It sure looks like a movie called Tower Heist!
