Ben is one of these guys that does one act and that’s it. What works for one film can be tedious for another. This is the ‘another.’

Jack is Jack. No big whoops there.

Robert is tired and the character is one joke stretched out too far.

The entire thing is a big, well filmed, sketch with one laugh and a whole lot of I-wonder-what’s-on-the-other-side-oh-I-can’t-be-bothered-turning-over-yet-maybe-it-gets-better.

It doesn’t. The cast and crew should have turned this one down.

Keep DVD?

No. Might if it was a box set of Stiller’s best but, to be completely honest, I doubt I’d want that either.

Watch if on TV?

Yes if there’s nothing else and I’m waiting for a fart after a particularly large dinner.

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
