Envy

Envy, 2004 film starring  Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Rachel Weisz and Christopher Walken..  So, where does all the poop go?  Some of it landed in this film!

Tim (Stiller) and Nick (Black) are friends that live across from one another.  Nick comes up with a business idea that Tim finds absolutely ridiculous and will not help invest in.  Wrong choice, the idea takes off and Nick quickly becomes rich from the product.  As Nick’s house and possessions grow so does Tim’s jealousy of him.  Walken plays a drifter that helps Tim.  Things get crazy after that!!

This film was funny, don’t get me wrong but it didn’t quite live up to my standards for Jack Black.  I mean, his acting was ok but I just didn’t feel the ‘Black’ vibe I get when I watch School Of Rock or Shallow Hal etc…   Stiller was just ok but I have never been a huge fan of his though he has had some good hits.  The story was weird, ‘Vapooriser’!!  I won’t trash it too much because it was sort of fun, not a multiple watch type of film but fun.  If you haven’t seen it I won’t give it away but think, Where does all the poo go?  Watch to find out.  Now that parts was funny.

Now both our main actors have had many big, funny hits but I think this one will go down as just alright, now,  every actor will have the odd flop so don’t be too hard on them.  I did enjoy watching it the once and may see it again on tv if it is on and there is nothing else good on!
