'Tower Heist' is a 2011 comedy movie directed by Brett Ratner. In the movie, billionaire Arthur Shaw's employees make plans to steal his money, after Arthur invests their life savings in a failed Ponzi scheme. In addition to Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller and Alan Alda, 'Tower Heist' also stars Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Tea Leoni and Gabourey Sidibe.

'Tower Heist' performed reasonably when it opened in U.S. theaters on November 4, 2011. The action comedy faced stiff box office competition from the likes of DreamWorks' 'Puss in Boots,' which went on to win the weekend (and several additional weekends as well). Since it's release, 'Tower Heist' has grossed well over $76 million domestically and more than $50 million internationally, for a worldwide total of more than $126 million.

Odessa: "Ya mess wit me, ya a dead man."
