Lite’s Review Room: Weekend Movies – Tower Heist, Like Crazy & Harold & Kumar
The Holiday season is almost upon us and that means some big movies are getting ready to come out. While the ‘J. Edgar’ and ‘Twilight’ movies are coming out in the next couple weeks this week holds a little more lighthearted and fun vibe to it.
We’ll be taking a look at a star heavy comedy, a college romance and Harold & Kumar.
Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy & Alan Alda star along side a lot of other familiar faces in a comedy about a group of employees who are trying to get back their pensions from their boss who scammed them out of their money. Alan Alda plays the high rise billionaire who apparently has $20 million stowed away somewhere in his penthouse of the condo tower he owns. When he’s caught for defrauding hundreds of people (including the workers at the tower) his former employees want payback. A plan is set in motion by Stiller with help from his former childhood acquaintance and now ex-con Murphy.
