Jamie Anne Allman,
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
The movie having been shot almost two years before it was released in theaters was in danger of being released straight to video due to poor audience response during test screenings. It was only due to School of Rock (2003)'s huge success that it finally got a theatrical release. See more »

I know the critics didn't like this movie, but I wonder why. I liked it a lot. This movie was funny on a lot of levels. The visuals of the mansion built under the power lines, the out of control merry-go-round, the vanishing poop, and the dead horse were hilarious. The dialog was funny. The performances were good -- all three actors played it "straight". Uncharacteristically, Jack Black played it dead-pan, making it even more funny. Even the music was funny. And like a good comedy, there was a moral gently told. There are so many formula comedies, it is hard to distinguish one from the other. This one definitely stands by itself. I recommend it to anyone who needs a good laugh and who don't take movies or themselves too seriously.
