"Gabourey Sidibe plays a safe-cracking 'Precious' with a Jamaican accent. I don't mean to be insensitive, but what else can she play?"

I need this comment explained to me. What is a Precious? Are you saying her character in Tower Heist is an abused teenage mother? But also a Jamaican safecracker? I don't mean to be insensitive, but how easy is it to get a job writing on this site?

This is one of the weirdest reviews I've ever read, for a multitude of reasons.

What the heck? How is it that when I like bad movies, this sites hates them, but then where there are really bad movies, this site loves them? Did something happening with the new year? I mean, Dark of the Moon, The Thing, Rum Diaries, and now Tower Heist? Next you will be giving Underworld Awakening a 4/5 and say it is the best in the series.

I was actually most disappointed with Eddie Murphy's performance in this movie, it was lackluster, like he didn't know what kind of character he wanted to be.

I honestly will feel sorrow for anyone who blind buys this movie based on the review on this website. My wife and I sat through this terrible disjointed crapfest and both were clock watching the entire time. Honestly it felt like we were watching a movie that was cut up too much. The pacing is terrible and the actual 'heist' in the movie takes too long to get moving.

I know different people like different things and whatnot, but I found zero redeeming qualities about this movie. It felt as though the premise was good, but the execution was way off the mark.

I have to concur...
... with the other posters. As someone who came of age in Eddie Murphy's glory days I occasionally will give one of his modern flicks a try in the hopes that it might contain some of that old magic. His performance here seemed a little unfocused and the role itself seemed underwritten. In fact I had the opposite reaction to Luke's - I rather ENJOYED the first act and thought the film started to unravel once the heist got into motion. Loved Alan Alda as the smug villain though....
