Ben Stiller: A Viewer’s Guide |

RECOMMENDED: Mystery Men (1999)

There’s another side to Ben Stiller, an inner Hulk than rarely comes out to play. How do we know? Because we’ve seen Mystery Men. In it he plays a man who couldn’t be more enraged if he woke up with his weiner stuck in his zip every single day. He is Mr. Furious, a “ticking timebomb of fury”. Mess with him and he will go Pompeii on your... er, butt. With superpowers like “being mysterious” and waffling things, these superheroes aren’t likely to be recruited into the Avengers any time soon, but Stiller’s rage monster and the likes of the Blue Raja, the Sphinx and the Shoveler match off against the evil Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) with more than enough quips to keep this super-spoof in the air.

2 Tropic Thunder
Not a Stiller fan at all, I generally avoid his films because, he's just not my cup of tea. But, saying that, i LOVE Tropic Thunder with a passion! One of the funniest films ever! Credit where credit is due to the man! I would say it is ESSENTIAL viewing! More

5 I like him!
He's got some sort of likeability factor and even though Greenberg was quite a pill to swallow I still liked the film because there are people like that and he made him feel sincere. But yeah! Theres Something About Mary was his biggest for me, an introduction and solid proof that all the zaniness he can still pull off the Straight Man quite well, stupidly well actually More
