    A harmless movie, despite the fact that Stiller directs himself.
    Sure, it has its share of silly moments, but some are actually quite funny.
    As for the plot, well, it`s rather predictable (good guy gets the bad guy) and the characters are deliberately grotesque (come on - Ben Stiller - a model?!?).
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs and the colors are nicely saturated, which adds a lot to the colorful atmosphere of the movie.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. The surrounds are used occasionally, but most of the action comes from the 3 front speakers.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary, 5 deleted scenes, 6 extended scenes, some funny outtakes, a music video and a picture gallery.
    Bottom line - if you can stand the sight of Stiller (looking sillier than usual) for an hour and a half, give this movie a try. Otherwise - avoid.

    A childish movie, fun at times, but mostly i considder this to be something you watch on a rainy afternoon when there`s nothing else to do...
