Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an all-star cast in this hilarious comedy caper about a luxury condo manager (Stiller) who leads a staff of workers to seek payback on the Wall Street swindler (Alan Alda) who defrauded them. With only days until the billionaire gets away with the perfect crime, the unlikely crew of amateur thieves enlists the help of petty crook Slide (Murphy) to steal the $20 million they're sure is hidden in the penthouse. From the director of the Rush Hour series, "Tower Heist is so fun, it's criminal!" (Associated Press).

I was delightfully surprised!! I thought this was going to be pretty cheesy, but it was quite good. Funny, a little suspenseful, makes you want to yell at the characters at times for being stupid!! I would watch it again, and I may buy it for my DVD collection. Eddie Murphy was the only downside, he was not as good as he could have been...he's usually pretty funny; not in this one. Profanity could have been less as well. Worth the money to rent though!!
I loved this movie!
I watched a rental copy here on Amazon.com 6 times then I bought the Blu-Ray/DVD copy so I could have it in my movie library.
Some of my favorite actors are in the movie, Ben Stiller, Eddy Murphy and Alan Alda.
The plot is clever and the ending is very unexpected. I won't go through the entire movie but in a nutshell, here's what happens.
Ben Stiller's character Josh Kovacs is the General Manager of a high priced condo building in New York called The Tower.

Early in the movie, we see the FBI arrest Arthur Shaw for fraud and theft. We find out that Josh Kovacs had asked Arthur Shaw to manage the pension money for the staff at the Tower so everyone has lost their money. After one employee tries to commit suicide, Josh...
One of the most critical elements of a successful plot is for the reader/audience to feel vindicated or avenged. This satisfying romp is for the people whose finances took a hit from the notorious felon Bernie Madoff. All of his victims should attend this film because they want to see a heartless crook get his comeuppance!
This is a low-tech version of "Ocean's 11," with another likable cast, a loathable villain, and a laudable cause. A wealthy shyster has squandered and lost billions, including the pension plan for the hard-working staff in The Tower, his ultra-elegant, supremely secure high-rise. It's fun to watch some earnest amateurs try to get their pensions back!
Here is the gold-plated cast: * Eddie Murphy ("Chicago") has to be bailed out of jail; none of our heroes knows how to steal, so they need his professional advice. * Ben Stiller ("Tropic Thunder") is the extraordinarily efficient manager of The Tower, organized, resourceful and loyal...
