There are some good moments in Brett Ratner's Tower Heist but rarely do they occur often enough to warrant an elevated experience. Five writers Tedd Griffin and rewrite specialist Jeff Nathanson can't really help a good premise with good performances - especially from Eddie Murphy and Alan Alda. Ben Stiller is Ben Stiller - still pedantic. The Stiller vehicle meets Oceans Eleven meets Bernie Madoff and the financial crumble of 2008, our own reality show. Hard to recommend but you'll see much worse.
