Relentlessly unfunny comedy about a pragmatic working stiff (Ben Stiller) who, after passing up the opportunity to invest in the harebrained invention which nets his best buddy (Jack Black) a fortune, becomes consumed with envy, costing him his job and perhaps his friendship, not to mention his sanity. Though one would expect more from a director of Barry Levinson's caliber and the talented tag team of Stiller and Black, there is not much to covet in this stale study of jealousy; in fact, viewers may find themselves tempted toward another of the deadly sins -- anger -- for having paid money to sit through 90 minutes of uninterrupted forced humor. An instance of rough language and recurring crude sexual language and potty humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
