Here’s the situation: you are one of the many well-trained staff members of a very fancy apartment building, in which some of the most wealthy white people live. As a stupid plebian you invest most of your savings with one such white person, who is some sort of financial guru. He also looks like Alan Alda. He’s a nice guy. Or so you thought, especially after all the lives he saved during the Korean War in the 1950s. Turns out, dude is a crook! And now you have no more of your middle-class savings. Thankfully, Ben Stiller is on staff at said apartment complex and mobilizes the entire support staff (including you!) to steal back the $20 million Alda stole from all of yous. But none of you know how to steal things. Although one of the people you work with looks an awful lot like Casey Affleck, who proved his stealing prowess in three Oceans movies. But whatever. I’ll ignore that. (If you couldn’t tell by now, I have a problem telling the difference between fantasy and reality. No matter.) So, Stiller has an idea; he’ll bail Eddie Murphy (who is very good at stealing things) out of jail and Eddie Murphy will help you get your money back.

That’s the basics to Tower Heist, hitting theaters Nov. 4. This flick also stars Matthew Broderick, Tea Leoni, Gabourey Sidibe (yes, from Precious) and Judd Hirsch. And the first trailer just went live online. This looks like an amazingly entertaining movie. Let us know what you think after taking a peep at the trailer.

    No one wants an Eddie Murphy comeback more than I. But this looks like a guy doing an Eddie Murphy impression.
