Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, Alan Alda and Matthew Broderick star in a comedy heist movie. Set in a tower. Yowsa. This is the movie which Universal was planning to release as a pay-to-view online, until the industry kicked up a large rumpus and got them to backtrack.

When the janitors and support staff of a Ritzy high-rise apartment block find out they have been taken to the cleaners in a Ponzi scheme run by one of its tenants, an investment banker of course, they get together to break into his penthouse and repay the favour.

Trump International was the real-life tower used for the filming, Brett Ratner is the man behind the film (X-Men: The Last Stand, as well as the Rush Hour movies), and it's the return vehicle for Eddie Murphy.
