Universal Pictures has released a trailer for the Brett Ratner-directed Tower Heist, a comedy that stars Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Alan Alda and Tea Leoni. Alda plays a Bernie Madoff-like financier whose ponzi scheme wipes out the pensions of the staff of a luxury high rise where the swindler lives. They aim to get their money back in a caper film shot completely in Gotham. Is it me, or does Murphy appear to be playing the wisecracking underdog that made him a star in movies like 48 Hours, Trading Places and Beverly Hills Cop? After walking through a succession of kid-themed comedies that didn’t tax his talents, can Eddie regain his mojo?
