Review:  I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little sick of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. What is it with these guys?  They’re like Captain and Tennille singing a non-stop version of “Love Will Keep Us Together.” And let’s face it, unlike those two, it’s not like Stiller and Wilson’s lyrics were written by Neil Sedaka. They’re comics, pretending to be actors – and doing the same schtick over and over.

Somebody please put me out of my misery, because they each have more films coming out this year – several of 'em. Apparently the Carpenters were right. It’s only just begun.

If you’re thinking that this movie will take you back a few years, you’re correct. You can cringe with the rest of us at the clothes, the décor and the disco – all to the beat of some pretty fun music – and well done by Edward Verreaux and Theodore Shapiro. Okay, so I’m showing my age, but I enjoyed that part. Most people under 35 probably won’t get this film, though. And frankly, with its overt sexuality and drugs, I’m thinking that should be the cutoff age, anyway.

Get my drift?
