Great spoof of classically ditzy Cruise character
26 November 2002 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I might be one of the few, but I still think that Ben Stiller's older work is so much funnier than that of the last few years (Something About Mary, etc.). The old "Ben Stiller Show" and the like were less about gross out jokes and more about developing humor (though not always traditionally).

The Hustler of Money is one of the few older TV spots that my family still talks about today. As 'Wince', Stiller spoofs Tom Cruise's character from the Color of Money, taking Cruise's ditziness in the role to almost charicatured extremes -- hilarious!
