One of the funniest things that MTV's cooked up in a long while
13 July 2003 | by (My House, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Mission: Improbable" has got to be the most hilarious parody I've ever watched. Ben Stiller plays 'Tom Crooze', Tom Cruise's supposed stunt man. It shows Stiller doing 'stunts' for M:I2, Magnolia, Cocktail and Risky Business. Some involve Crooze playing with beer bottles (Cocktail) and fighting other stunt men (M:I2). The best part is that it's basically Stiller impersonating Cruise for five or ten minutes. Stiller does it perfectly. 7.5/10.
