Ben Stiller and Jack Black star as Tim and Nick, best friends, neighbors and co-workers, whose equal footing is suddenly tripped up when one of Nick's harebrained get-rich-quick schemes actually succeeds: Vapoorizer, a spray that literally makes dog poop, or any other kind for that matter, evaporate into thin air -- to where exactly is anyone's guess. Tim, who had scoffed at Nick's idea and passed on an opportunity to get in on the deal, can only watch as Nick's fortune -- and Tim's own envy -- grow to equally outrageous proportions. When the flames of jealousy are fanned by an oddball drifter (Walken) who imposes himself into the situation, Tim's life careens wildly out of control ... taking Nick's with it.Written by

After Tim shoots the horse with the arrow, he then approaches the fallen horse and the arrow is sticking out of the horse's right side. However, the horse originally fell on its left side. See more »

Actually a different comedy- slightly dark humor. Ben Stiller plays the bumbling, timid but pent-up simple man - a common role for him but always entertaining. Jack Black plays an overexagerated happy family man - little overly dramaitc, but I think that's just the way he is, Lord bless 'im. It was kind of refreshing not to have any fart humor or homosexual humor, which seems so previlent now. If you liked Royal Tenanbaums, you might like this. And Christopher Walken is AWESOME! Such a character.
