A DVD Recommendation That's A Little Off The Beaten Path...
Remember the good ol' days when Ben Stiller wasn't in every other movie that came out? I know it's hard to go back that far, but there was a time when he wasn't spitting out 50 movies a year.
Seriously, look at his IMDB page post-1999. Wilt Chamberlain didn't get around that much.
But I digress.
Back in 1998, Stiller played an interesting (read as: not being humiliated in every scene) role in Zero Effect, a flick about the world's greatest/most borderline psychotic private detective.
You know how I know this is a good movie? Bill Pullman, who couldn't act his way out of a parking ticket, is great in it.
He plays Daryl Zero, the aforementioned loony detective, and does a great job creating a totally unique and fascinating character.
It's a dark comedy with a great gloomy feel and a really interesting storyline.
Check it out this weekend...
