DVD: Tower Heist (12)

 

This uneven crime caper is full of plot-holes and clichés, but it's redeemed by a perky script, Alan Alda's convincingly shady banker Arthur Shaw, and a lovely performance from Matthew Broderick as a disgraced financier.

Ben Stiller plays Josh, an uptight (Stiller's standard setting) perfectionist who manages a luxury Central Park tower block in New York and tends to the needs of the arrogant Shaw. When Shaw diddles his staff out of their pension schemes, Josh decides to rob the plutocrat's apartment with the help of Eddie Murphy's petty thief, Casey Affleck's concierge and Broderick's broken man.
