In his self-directed starring effort, Ben Stiller, for the first time in recent memory, doesn't fall back on his usual tics and delivers one of the finest performances of his career. Meanwhile, Sean Penn nearly steals the movie as the flamboyant photographer. As director, Stiller attempts to deliver a very adult film, but it's hobbled by all the imaginary derring-do: Beautiful shots of everyday life give way to overblown, distracting CGI that only slow the film's momentum. Stiller's time spent on the set of The Royal Tenenbaums served him well, as Wes Anderson's visual style influences every scene here. With Kristen Wiig.
