Ben Stiller is a shitty actor,a shity director which can easily be concluded after watching this movie,and also a shitty excuse for a human beeing ! Useless,not funny,stupid,especially the parts where 'director' makes a few 'meaningfull' tv screen entrances as an evil twin brother who shocked the entire Usa arghhh
