Tower Heist (2011)

This is like the derpy version of Ocean’s Eleven.  If Brett Ratner gets his crotch-smelling hand on anything, you know it’s going to be stupid.  He ruined the X-Men franchise so badly that they had to start over.  This movie was so bad it killed Heavy D [citation needed].  It wasn’t so bad that I am enraged or anything, but it’s just.. it’s sad, really.  It only made $146 million box office, but it looked so stupid and like the producers were trying to cram so many different actors that cater to specific demographics into one movie that it looked like it was going to be a mishmash of epic proportions.

There are so many absurd storyline contrivances and plot holes and general stupidity abounding throughout the movie, that someone should sit down and really pick it apart.  Someone smarter and more dedicated than me, though.  I don’t hate it that much, it’s just a waste of time.  There were two decent to good performances in the movie, and those were Eddie Murphy and Gabourey Sidibe’s time on screen.  Sidibe surprised me the most though, as I thought Precious was a horrible movie and didn’t really think she would ever amount to anything other than her one career-defining role.

Anyways, it was what I thought it was going to be: a waste of many talented actors, but hurrah for them continually getting work.
