Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "The latest Brett Ratner Film, Tower Heist is a mixed bag. Its heist isn’t as predictable as one would expect, but the comedy is just as bad as one would expect. Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead a cast of misfits in a harmless film that pokes at the rich people while allowing us middle class civilians a chance at feeling special and important. It puts the power in the hands of the worker bees, but it doesn’t venture too far away from the beaten path resulting in just another Brett Ratner film with a hint of potential. It’s not an incredible waste of time, but I wouldn’t call it a great film by any means."
