The Rossa Corsa Red 1962 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso used in the film was claimed to have been the exact car owned by the "King of Cool, Steve McQueen." While it is true that Steve McQueen did own a 1962 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, his car was Chestnut Brown, not the Italian Red used on the movie car. See more »
Even Agent Denham should've immediately realized that the car in Shaw's living room wasn't Steve McQueen's, because not only was it a replica made out of gold (which Josh and his gang don't find out until later), but Steve McQueen's car was also brown, not red. See more »
"Tower Heist" is a fun comedy, action and crime thriller. It's a chess game of life. The opponents are a band of employees who run a high-class apartment building in the heart of Manhattan, and the pent-house tenant who takes their pensions and savings to the cleaners. But, one caper deserves another, and the employees are on the rebound after the FBI get into the picture.
It's all about decorum, money, position, working for a living, trusting others, greed, fraud, getting even and justice. That may not sound like the elements of comedy, but they all add ;to a very good and entertaining movie. Ben Stiller is the lead character. Eddie Murphy, Alan Alda, Judd Hirsch, Tea Leoni and a host of other actors add to the fast action, bedlam and smiles in this film.
Most adults should enjoy this film. Just be prepared for city street language and some vulgarity. The end is an especially nice surprise.
