He is close to all the tenants, especially financier Arthur Shaw. One day Shaw is arrested by the FBI for fraud. Josh thinks it’s a misunderstanding that can be resolved, but later he learns that the employees’ pension fund – which he asked Shaw to handle – is gone. When one of the employees tries to kill himself, Josh’s views of Shaw change. He goes to see him and loses his temper, and his job. The FBI agent in charge tells him that Shaw might walk, and recovering the pension fund is unlikely. She tells him that it’s been rumored that Shaw has $20 million lying around if he needs it in a hurry. Josh thinks he knows where it is, so with two other fired employees and an evicted tenant, they set out to get into Shaw’s penthouse to get the money. But they realize they need the assistance of someone who knows how to steal, so Josh asks an old acquaintance named Slide who he knows is a thief to help them.
Plot: A luxury condo manager leads a staff of workers to seek payback on the Wall Street swindler 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 to steal the $20 million they’re sure is hidden in the penthouse.

I don’t get why everybody hates this! Okay, Alan Alda’s character showed his true colours little too soon, but the rest of the film paid homage to your 80s-90s comic caper. Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy were terrific.
And for me, this is a kind of film I would watch on Thanksgiving. It is a holiday special.
A fabulous movie.
I know some would say it’s stupid and empty of any sense. I say: I don’t care I liked it very much and I’ve watched it seven times. It must be seen.
Comedy and capers in the skyscraper
“Tower Heist” is a fun comedy, action and crime thriller. It’s a chess game of life. The opponents are a band of employees who run a high-class apartment building in the heart of Manhattan, and the pent-house tenant who takes their pensions and savings to the cleaners. But, one caper deserves another, and the employees are on the rebound after the FBI get into the picture.
It’s all about decorum, money, position, working for a living, trusting others, greed, fraud, getting even and justice. That may not sound like the elements of comedy, but they all add ;to a very good and entertaining movie. Ben Stiller is the lead character. Eddie Murphy, Alan Alda, Judd Hirsch, Tea Leoni and a host of other actors add to the fast action, bedlam and smiles in this film.
Most adults should enjoy this film. Just be prepared for city street language and some vulgarity. The end is an especially nice surprise.
Better Than I Expected
I was able to see one of the first screenings of Tower Heist last night. I went in just happy to see a free movie two weeks before its release, but at the same time I was not expecting this movie to be that funny. With that said, it was a lot better than I expected.
Eddie Murphy’s character was an over-the-top funny type of guy and Ben Stiller had his moments of over-the-top humor too. The plot itself is obviously not that believable, but let’s be honest, if you go into this movie expecting an “Italian Job-like” heist plot then you might as well not even go.
The supporting roles in this movie were really good and the film is filled with great one liners. There were a couple of lines that didn’t really turn out as funny as the writer probably thought, but all that said it is worth the watch.
