'Envy'
(Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Christopher Walken, Rachel Weisz / PG-13 / 93 mins / Dreamworks)

Overview: When a hapless schmo (Jack Black) becomes rich after selling an invention called Vapoorize, which causes dog waste to vanish instantly, his longtime friend and neighbor (Ben Stiller) is driven insane with envy and proceeds to wage war on him.

Verdict: To be bluntly honest, 'Envy' suffers from the lack of a unifying directorial intelligence, is a mean-spirited black comedy, ... and deserves to be Vapoorized! Wrenchingly unfunny, 'Envy' makes you wish you could spray something at the screen to make it disappear! And so, to lay the facts down as they should be known, 'Envy' is not even a comedy, ... just an idea for one!
