Apartment block manager Josh Kovaks (Ben Stiller) is determined to have the last laugh when an unscrupulous plutocrat Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) purloins the staff's pension fund.
When the treacherous Shaw is arrested and the money seems to have vanished, Kovaks gathers a motley crew together to raid the crook's penthouse and recover $20 million from a hidden safe.
The gang includes the building's concierge (Casey Affleck) and housekeeper (Gabourey Sidibe), and a former tenant (Matthew Broderick) who's been evicted. Kovaks also enlists career criminal 'Slide' (Eddie Murphy) to whip the unlikely posse into shape.
With the heist taking place during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, there's no shortage of mayhem, especially when the plan goes wrong...
