The Tower - a luxury residential skyscraper in downtown of New York. The average cost of an apartment there is about 5.6 million dollars. "The Tower" just bustles with cameras and is full of support staff, whose main task - taking care of skyscraper inhibitors. Penthouse of the "Tower" is occupied by one of the largest financiers of America, Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda). Once, at the request of the manager Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) passed into the hands of Shaw taking care of the pension fund of all employees.
But the financier was not the most honest man that had tried to prove the FBI at the legislative level, but the court was very humane in respect of its influential "client". So a good amount of dollars turned out to be unattainable for ordinary people to altitude. And that's why people had been deceived to solve their own problems in the spirit of the old and kind Robin Hood (which, incidentally, the film does not forget to mention).
The comedy is spiced with bright and colorful characters that make up the backbone of the whole picture, creates exactly atmosphere that captivates the audience of "Tower heist". A welcoming, pleasant atmosphere of mutual support and passion that forces people sitting in the hall alternately laugh, empathize and enjoy the characters on the screen is surprisingly alive and real, in a fit of despair, uniting their forces to the unequal struggle against a common enemy. Incidentally, this is great inspiration, and do not share the joy of the characters in the film successful isolation is simply unrealistic.
In "Tower Heist" the hero of Murphy, with all his flightiness and cunning, with all his improvisation is a kind of counterbalance to the hero of Stiller, prudently, and most of the time, concentrated. Charming, even though some offenses (not to mention his principal "profession"). Needless to say that a good half of the humor in the film is revolve around him.
True, there are some logical inconsistencies, but so slight that you remember about them just as you get home. And, even though they, Happy End does not seem far-fetched, and quite a plausible, and seemingly, a sad little note, which gives it all a bit more realism, not depressing. Rather, it was still too small, which, however, the film does not hurt.
