Envy (2004)

The plot here is about as brief and light as you can get within a feature-length film (there’s not even the expected friendship fall-out near the end), but it’s appreciably silly: Black’s oblivious optimist and Stiller’s straight guy are a good pair; Walken’s long-haired oddball, “J-Man”, is a riot; and the main premise is ridiculous enough to feel self-aware. Black’s infomercials and Stiller’s dead horse troubles are two highlights in this appetizer-sized but funny enough comedy.
