Wonderfully funny Ben Stiller Short.
16 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Tom Crooze or Mission Improbable is the 6 and a half minute short starring Ben Stiller and Tom Cruise. The movie is a look behind the scenes of Mission Impossible 2 with Tom Cruises stunt double. This short is laugh a minute(I do remember though it is only 7 minutes long) show that you can tell some of it or most of it was ab libbed. Overall if you can find this then you have to watch it (it is on Youtube for those interested) and if you cannot find a way or else. I rate this 86%. If you liked this one then you would probably like Dodgeball and The Ben Stiller Show. This is definitely my favourite short ever and Ben Stiller has 3 thumbs up for his performance.
