Josh Kovas (Ben Stiller) is the proud manager of one of the most luxurious and secure high-rise blocks in New York. With his dedicated staff, he ensures that everything runs smoothly for the benefit of the rich residents. And none of them are richer than Wall Street billionaire Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda), who occupies the penthouse apartment.

But Shaw's under house arrest for a massive $2 billion swindle - and his victims include Josh and his team, whose pensions he was entrusted to handle. Now they want their money back - and to help get it, Josh has recruited career criminal Slide (Eddie Murphy).

'Rush Hour' director Brett Ratner puts two great comedy stars together for the first time, with Murphy making a welcome return to the odd-couple action buddy-movie genre in which he scored his earliest successes.
