Tower Heist

The Hero and I were actually able to get out of the house without the kids this past weekend. We went to see Tower Heist with Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller. Eddie and Ben starred alongside Casey Affleck, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe, and Tea Leoni. I went in with one expectation. I hope it's funny!

The movie didn't disappoint. It's about a group of employees who fall victim to a wealthy business man. They ban together to rob the man who robbed them. I laughed out loud throughout the whole movie. I may have even snorted a time or two. {Yes, I do that sometimes.} This is the first comedy I've seen in a long time that I actually want to see again and again. Eddie Murphy was recently on The Ellen DeGeneres show. He said he was happy to be playing a 'streety' guy after being in so many family films in recent years. If you thought Eddie Murphy left, he's definitely back in this role. If you were on the fence about Tower Heist, I highly recommend it. It's hilarious!

I saw it the other day and thought it was hilarious. I went in with really low expectations and was surprised by how funny it was.

I thought the previews looked stupid, so I'm glad to know it was funny!

Pretty much love the whole cast, so I'm glad to hear it's funny. I kinda miss Eddie Murphy.

I want to see that so bad, but it's impossible to get to a theatre in my house. My kids seem to get to go all the time. The only thing I've seen in a theatre lately is Tangled. I'm pathetic.
