Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Christopher Walken in ENVY Trailer... looks cool!

Hey folks, Harry here... Over at TheMovieBox.Net, they've snatched the ENVY trailer right smack dab out of ACCESS HOLLYWOOD and having just watched it... I can't wait to see this thing. Jack Black and Ben Stiller seem hilarious and Jack Black's invention that gets him rich is in fact genius. HOWEVER... Christopher Walken seems to have descended from an alternative dimension 3 foot to the left of weird in the trailer. It is just one of those random bizarre roles he takes from time to time and this one... I just look at him and start laughing... see if it happens to you too...

Click here to check out ENVY!

    Looks funny...... maybe.......

    by Jarek

    Well, I'm there. Jack Black will always have my ticket money.

    Yep - fristy mcfrist, that's me.

    it could be worse

    He may be "fristy mcfrist" (daah) but then again, he ain't no dumbass double poster.

    Fucking nitwits need to learn how to stop double posting

    That is totally my biggest fear -

    by WeedyMcSmokey

    That one of my numb-nut buddies is going to luck into a fucking wad o cash. I don't think I'd handle that too well. Except if they earned it. Yeah right - who the fuck 'earns' that kind of money. Look, obviously I don't have much to say on the subject, other than Jack Black is pretty funny in a pompous kinda way. Ben Stiller made me laugh a few times - "Mer-MAN Dad, Mer-man...."

    Dammit, beaten to it

    by earthworm

    And the original double poster makes a good point about the suckiness of this site. Dammit again

    Larry David's Involvement

    by DanielKurland

    This is that project that Larry David appeared to be funding or producing, or something to that effect. Hopefully he will have some involvement in the writing of the screenplay. I doubt it though. Damn shame thoguh as he really is great. Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 4 hasn't come soon enough.

  • June 26, 2003, 3:11 p.m. CST

    I'd taste Ben Stiller's pants ANY day.

    by rev_skarekroe

    Dude, that guy is HOT. Wait... did I type that, or just think it? sk

  • June 26, 2003, 3:20 p.m. CST

    larry david is involved?

    by Toe Jam

    if so, this sounds awfully similar to the bomb "sour grapes" he made a few years back, in which two buddies go to atlantic city and one wins big and the other one gets really jealous. i've never seen it, but i've heard it's awful, and even larry david himself poked fun at it on an episode of "curb your enthusiasm," which by the way needs to come back for season 4 RIGHT FUCKING NOW!

  • June 26, 2003, 4:18 p.m. CST

    But the real question is, will Jack Black fight terrorists in ho

    by Chastain-86

    Chastain-86: Keeping AICN catch-phrases alive since 1997. Oh, and so I can remain on-topic: Jack Black is my cousin's hairdresser's occasionally butt-sex partner. No, really.

    Sour Grapes meets Patch Adams

    by Clara Bow

    Okay, so I DID see Sour Grapes, or at least the 30 minutes or so that I could handle out of some morbid curiousity as to whether or not that, or Patch Adams, should win my award for THE WORST MOVIE EVER MADE!!!! It's so bad that there are no words, and yet I shall attempt to find them. Imagine the worst sitcom you've ever seen, then mix in some really bad acting, give the camera to a five year old, then mix in that dream where you're looking for the toilet and when you finally find it, it's out in public and everybody's watching you and you think "This is so horrible. This is the worst thing ever." And yet it isn't, because this movie was worse. So anyway, if Envy is anything like that, then I won't be seeing it.

    I once saw Jack Black at Old Country Buffet....

    by Rome&BrianGarage

    ke kept screaming for more porkchops.....when they refused he broke the hostess's neck with an akiddo chop...then he put a bunch of stuffed mashed potatoes in his purse and put a wheat roll in his mouth and might have been Seagal but it just seems like something Jack Black would do...oh well...

  • June 26, 2003, 8:23 p.m. CST

    here's a better version of the trailer...

    envy THIS!

    by hank quinlan

    Dude, I LOVED Sour Grapes. If you like Larry David's stuff it's right up your alley. It has an unfair rap. There is a visual joke Bierko does that is hilarious. "Enjoying your pie, Dr. Maxwell?" was great too. Also, knew someone who worked on this set and Ben Stiller is a MONSTER. He pulled diva shit you wouldn't believe. Quinlan out...

    not that funny

    by humanboobtube

    don't get me wrong, i like Stiller, Black and Walken, but that trailer made the film look woeful. Walken is due a really good role. He needs to sack his agent

    Why bother

    by earthworm

    Yes Foes death is very tragic, he nearly joined my team a few years ago (United), but why bother posting that on a movie website? For his family? nope, friends? nope, the majority of people here who won't know who he is? It's bad enough seeing all this on the football forums I browse. It's like the fawning that goes on every time some obscure Z-list actor from a 1950's Twilight Zone cops it. If you want to get worked up, aim it at the Daily Mirrors Front page instead or go to to post if you must.

    this looks kinda sucky

    by Heleno

    Oh well, not every Stiller film can be as stupidly funny as Zoolander. (I've never even been to Mount Vesuvius!; it needs to be at least...three times this big!) However, as one of the three people out there who actually liked Shallow Hal (not a lot, but neither did I run screaming from the cinema), I may end up seeing it anyway.

  • June 27, 2003, 6:55 a.m. CST

    Hang on a bloody minute

    by earthworm

    You LIKED Zoolander. Now that was easily the worst film I've ever seen, and I've seen Attack of the Clones. This is coming from someone who enjoyed the Parole Officer as well...

    by humanboobtube

    Me and my friends rented it out one evening before going out. 20 mins in we thought 'fuck this, this is the worst pile of fucking shit i have ever seen' and switched it of and went out. Next morniing, bored, we switched it back on again and we all found it fucking hilarious. Just goes to show

  • June 27, 2003, 11:17 a.m. CST

    Great cast! I'll pay to see this!

    by Ivan_Mtl

    Are you kidding me? Even if the movie only delivers on half of its laughs, how can you not want to see Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Christopher Walken, Rachel Weisz and Amy Poehler (BIG fan here) in the same movie? Also, if Larry David is somehow involved, that pretty much seals the deal for me. Oh... and Barry Levinson ain't too shabby of a director either.

  • June 28, 2003, 7:30 a.m. CST

    I agree - it did look sucky

    by LoveDark

    The trailer made sad at some of the great talent waste with that lame-o Jet Black. Egads. I would only see this if my air-conditioner was broke and I wanted to cool off at the dollar cinema.

  • June 28, 2003, 8:37 a.m. CST

    this is funny beee-yotch

    by demon75

    Come on people, Jack Black is funny! Walken and Stiller? What can go wrong? Probably Barry Levinson. Isn't he the guy who directed Toys?! That s**t was stinky.

    This looks soooooooo unfunny, the definition of a one joke film.

    by SIR-SLEDGE450

    But,hey,Chris Walkens in it,so,it cant be that bad!But what a waste of talent (Stiller,Levison,Black,Weiz) R.I.P To there carrers, and R.I.P Marc Vivien Foe. You were a talent.
