  • When even the best of friends cannot deal with your sudden good fortune, even though you are good and generous to them, that tells a lot

      Nick (Jack Black) and Tim (Ben Stiller) are best friends. Both married, they live next door, work together, and help each other in everything.

      You would think there’s no place to envy in true friendship, right? Wrong.

      When Nick’s successful invention makes him rich, Tim starts turning green.

      Nick does not change toward him and generously shares his fortune, but


      Tim feels bad about accepting his expensive gifts and actually turns more envious with each one.

      His wife’s nagging about not investing into Nick’s invention doesn’t help, either.

      One night, Tim is so bitter at his friend that he starts shooting arrows at Nick’s house and accidentally kills Nick’s beloved horse.

      Instead of admitting what he has done, he buries ...


      • the horse’s body and pretends to know nothing when Nick starts searching for the horse and grieve over its loss.

        It gets worse.

        When Nick announces a $50,000 reward for the horse, dead or alive, Tim wants to cash in.

        With the help of a shady friend (Christopher Walken) he digs out the dead horse.

        Before they can return it

        though, they happen to lose it.

        The movie is far from brilliant, I would not even call it a good comedy.

        But it does one thing very well: it shows the weakness of human nature.

        When even the best of friends cannot deal with your sudden good fortune, even though you are good and generous to them, that tells a lot.
